Shohei Ohtani turned in yet another stellar performance both on the mound and at the dish. Ohtani dealt six shutout innings with six strikeouts, and if that wasn’t enough, he had two hits to add to a beautiful performance.
Ohtani kept the runs from coming in, and Mike Trout was responsible for all four of the Angels’ runs with two longballs.
“Meanwhile Mike Trout again” – Barstool Sports
Recently, it seems like Los Angeles can only win if Ohtani is pitching, but Michael Lorenzen will try to give Los Angeles their first back-to-back win since May 24.
Lorenzen has shown flashes of greatness this season, as he’s allowed one run or fewer in half of his starts. In two of his three losses, he was lit up for five runs. When Lorenzen finds his stuff, he’s untouchable.
Going for the Mariners is Tennesse stud Robbie Ray. This year isn’t going as well for him as last, but there is more than enough time for him to turn it around. He’ll enter play today with a 5-6 record and a 4.52 ERA.

There’s something about playing in Washington that Mike Trout loves. He has a lifetime .327 average in this ballpark, so bettors can always expect Trout to pop off in Seattle.

Los Angeles Angels vs. Seattle Mariners Prediction
The Angels need to string together some wins if they want to stay relevant in the American League wild card race. If they can’t have Ohtani on the mound, Lorenzen is the next best option. Winning three out of five in Seattle would be a great way to end this road trip, and the easiest way to accomplish that would be by taking the first two games.
Angels (+112) & Under 7.5 (-102)
