Top Rated 10* MLB *BIG HITTER*
Minnesota vs. LA Angels,
06/01/2017 22:07 EDT,
Score: 4 - 2
Total: +106/+8½ Over
The Los Angeles Angels host the Minnesota Twins for the opener of a four-game series Thursday night.
The Twins are coming off four straight defeats giving up a total of 48(!) runs, and their MLB-worst bullpen has been under heavy fire. That should be the case once again here with Adalberto Mejia (1-1, 4.64 ERA) on the mound. Mejia will make his mere sixth start of the season, and gave up a pair of runs on six hits in five innings against Tampa Bay his last time out. He has worked more than five innings just once this season.
The Halos turn to Alex Meyer (2-2, 5.79 ERA) who will make his first start since May 20 after a short stint on the disabled list due to back spasms. The 27 year old will also make his sixth start of the season and was charged with four runs (three earned) on three hits and four walks in four innings at Citi Field his last time out. Meyer has walked 18 batters through 23 1/3 innings of work this season.
Over is 4-1 in Angels last five home games and 6-1 in Meyer's last seven starts overall. Over is 3-0-1 in Twins' last four overall and 5-2-2 in the last nine visits to Anaheim.
