Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Angels took the last game of their three-game set with the Oakland A’s to stay in first place in the AL West. That also gives them the best record in baseball with the Miami Marlins next on the Angels schedule. The Marlins have managed to stay in the playoff hunt all season, despite never really going on any sort of run. They’re just barely holding on to playoff hopes with a 64-65 record. Los Angeles Angels tickets are averaging $28.66 for the series on the secondary market, which is down 47 from the season average at Angel Stadium. It’s also about half the price for Angels vs Oakland A’s tickets for their upcoming series starting Thursday.

8/25 MIA Jarred Cosart vs. LAA Wade LeBlanc | Avg. Price: $26 | Get-in Price: $5

So far this season Wade LeBlanc has made only two appearances in the majors, and no starts. The 30-year-old, who owns a 4.56 career ERA, will get his first start of the season in the first game of this series. The game is also the cheapest of the series with a $26 average price and $5 get-in figure. 

8/26 MIA Nathan Eovaldi vs. LAA Matt Shoemaker | Avg. Price: $29 | Get-in Price: $4

The second start of the series goes to Matt Shoemaker, who is now the best starter for the Angels with the injuries they’ve suffered. While the Angles staff has more celebrated members in Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson, both have struggled so far this season. Shoemaker has a 10-3 record in 15 starts, while sporting the best walk and strikeout rate on the team. He has a 3.44 ERA, an even better 2.94 FIP to go with a 1.8 WAR in 89 innings. The average price of the game is $29, and the get-in price is $4.

8/27 MIA Henderson Alvarez vs. LAA Hector Santiago | Avg. Price: $31 | Get-in Price: $3

The final game of the series has the most expensive average at $31, but the cheapest get-in price at $3. Hector Santiago gets the start for the Angels, one of two pitchers the Angels acquired in the offseason. Santiago hasn’t played great, though, posting just a 1-7 record while sporting the second worst walk rate and WAR on the team. He’s also averaging just over five innings per start.
Love to hear what you think!
