Los Angeles wraps up their series with Seattle on Wednesday afternoon at Safeco Field. The Mariners continue to rocket up the AL West after taking the first game of the series. The Angels have lost two in a row after stringing together a lengthy winning streak.

Angels winning streak ends with an injury to Ohtani

Los Angeles begins life without Shohei Ohtani with losses. Prior to that, the team has somewhat caught up in the division with six straight wins. The dual pitcher-hitter is on the disabled list and isn’t expected to be back until at least the end of July. That only holds true if his UCL sprain in the left elbow doesn’t require surgery. First baseman Jefry Marte (.262 avg) missed the opener against Seattle with a left wrist injury and it’s unknown when he’ll make his return.

Probable starter: Right-hander Garrett Richards (4-4, 3.26 ERA)

Richards had a second straight no-decision against Minnesota last Friday. It was another tough one to accept has he allowed just two earned runs on six hits through 5.1 innings. He’s allowed three total runs in his last two outings and has a ratio of 16 strikeouts to 4 walks.

Cruz launches two homers in opener against Angels

Seattle also suffered a major setback with a long suspension for Robinson Cano, but the team continues to succeed without him. They took the opener 5-3 on Monday night, coming back from a two-run deficit in the first inning — they tied it up in the bottom of the frame. They’ve now won four of their last five games. Designated hitter Nelson Cruz (.260 avg) has been dominant lately, putting up four home runs in his last three games (15 total this season).

Probable starter: Left-hander Marco Gonzales (7-3, 3.28 ERA)

Gonzales has recorded four straight victories on the mound and continues to be a major part of the Mariners’ success. It was his worst outing, giving up two earned runs on five hits through 7.1 innings. He’s allowed four total runs in those outings and continues to bail out the offense.

Trends

Angels are:

  • 1-6 in their last 7 games against left-handed starters
  • 2-6 in Richards’ last 8 starts against AL West opponents

Mariners are:

  • 12-2 in their last 14 home games
  • 5-2 in Gonzales’s last 7 home starts

Will Richards finally get bailed out and get another victory on his belt? Unfortunately, his recent record against the division hasn’t gone well and he’s running into a buzzsaw with the other team’s hurler on the mound.
