Angels v Devil Rays

Lackey v. Jackson

The Devil Rays come to town hot on the heels of thoroughly trashing the New York Yankees and they will look to ride that momentum with an abbreviated 2 game series at the Big A starting tonight. But, the Angels have history and a recent flair for the dramatic on their side. The Angels have not only been fantastic at home thus far but they have also been dominating at home against the Devil Rays in winning all but 5 of the last 29 meetings between the two teams.

Look for Lackey to go to work against a tough Devil Ray offense that has been scoring runs at such a clip that would make even the most ardent Yankee fan proud. But, as the old adage goes, good pitching beats good hitting and Lackey may be one of the best in baseball. The Devil Rays will counter tonight with the former Dodger prospect Edwin Jackson who will still be looking for his first win after tonight.

The Angels bats have been alive at Home and I see no reason for things to change. As if they heard what we’ve been saying on the board, Angels hitters have been patient and looking for pitches, even going to town on another one of the game’s rising stars, Jeremy Bonderman.

Adam has boldly predicted that Shea will go downtown, not once, but twice, tonight. If he gets it out of the infield I will be surprised.
Vlad has been on a tear. Maddon shouldn’t pitch to him tonight, which means GA needs to step it up.
GA goes 2-4 with a couple of runs batted in and Lackey goes 7, preserving our bullpen for another day.

Angels win.
Love to hear what you think!
