Will Rangers bounce back at Angels? MLB Predictions 9/16/17

Will Rangers bounce back at Angels? MLB Predictions 9/16/17”

Justin Upton hit two home runs, Parker Bridwell outpitched Cole Hamels and the Los Angeles Angels moved up in the AL wild-card race by beating the Texas Rangers 2-0 Saturday night. Beltre suffered a Grade 2 strain of his left hamstring on August 31, an injury that typically requires a recovery time of 4-6 weeks. However, he returned as a pinch hitter on Wednesday and assumed full-time designated hitter duties on Thursday. "I think it helps to want to pick each other up".

The Texas Rangers could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak.

Texas starter Miguel Gonzalez (8-11) pitched past the third inning for the first time in three starts since he was acquired from the Chicago White Sox on August 31.

The Angels also got the wrong end of two of the three replay reviews in the game. His solo shot off of Matt Bush in the eighth inning pulled the Halos to within two runs at 4-2, but that would be as close as they would get. He was acquired for cash considerations from the Baltimore Orioles in April and spent the first two months of the season at Triple-A Salt Lake. The Angels followed the fifth-inning walk with their first base hit of the game when C.J. Cron lined a single to left.

Los Angeles Angels' Mike Trout is ruled out at second on a pickoff throw to Texas Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor (12) in the first inning of a baseball game in Anaheim, Calif., Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017.

The most significant was Albert Pujols drilling a ball into the gap with the bases loaded in the fifth, but Shin-Soo Choo caught it.

"We need that more often", Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Bridwell's solid start. "We just could not get the outs we needed in the sixth". Garrett Richards gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 1.38 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season.

He went five innings for the second consecutive start, raising his pitch count from 63 in his previous outing to 74 on Sunday. The Texas Rangers have lost seven of their last 10 games when allowing more than three runs. He struck out seven and walked two.

Richards has performed better against the Rangers than any team in his career, owing a 9-3 mark and 3.13 ERA in 20 games (16 starts). He walked leadoff batter Delino DeShields to open the game.

"I've been saying it all year, we've got a tight-knit group out there, out in the bullpen", said Parker, who leads the club with 67 appearances. He batted leadoff for the second time this season and played center field.

Richards then retired the next 11 batters in a row, but his offense was unable to make up the deficit.

"I'm proud of our guys and the way they continue to battle", Texas manager Jeff Banister said. "It seems like the last couple games, some pitches and I'm on time and some I'm a tick late".

Stats: Trout is hitting.315 (113 for 359) with 29 home runs, 65 RBIs and 85 runs scored in 102 games. The 490-foot home run by 1B Joey Gallo against the Angels was his 59th extra-base hit among 87 hits overall this season.

The only potential issue that arose from the Angels' victory was Brandon Phillips tweaking his side.
