Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels, last game of the series, the Astros lost the first two games of the series, but with the third put this long series in a possible tie if they win the last game. The Angels have nothing to lose, but can beat the Astros if they want, without much hope of reaching the postseason, the Angels are one of those teams that want to win to screw the future of the Astros.
Houston Astros: We can do miracles.
Losing two games at home has caused psychological damage, the Astros continue to have a positive record with 36 wins and 32 losses, 52.9% of effectiveness this season. At home they have played against the Angels only two series, the first series they lost 1-2, but this series will not be a victory, probably ends in a 2-2 draw. Between July and August the Astros suffered a losing streak of 9 games, the biggest in the last 2 years, but on the road the team has been winning many more games. 4-6 in the last 10 games.
Gerrit Cole with a spectacular season, 12 wins and 5 losses, 2.85 ERA. Cole has been an important part of the Astros on the road record and at home, 3 wins and 2 losses in the last five home games. Cole has had a much better season than the previous one with 12-12. The Astros at home are scoring an average of 4.40 runs, 7.91 hits and 1.13 home runs.
Los Angeles Angels: We want to destroy records.
Negative record for the Angels, 32 wins and 36 defeats, 47.1% of effectiveness. The record of the Angels on the road is not so bad, but it has not been enough to reach the post season. Prior to this series the Angels swept the Padres 3-0 on the road, but they had not won a series since June 30 against the Orioles. 4-6 is the record in the last 10 games for the Angels, the defeats have been massive, but the team has maintained a “stable” record between victories and defeats on the road.
Shohei Ohtani is a two-sided player, he’s a good hitter but he’s used as a pitcher from time to time by the Angels. 4 victories and 1 defeat for him, the only bad thing about his numbers is that he has not played on the road since May 30 against the Tigers and that game was a 1-6 defeat for him. The Angels are scoring 4.56 on the road, 1.24 homeruns and 8.74 hits per game.
