The LA Angels head into this three-game road series at Houston with a 69-71 record, and this series could absolutely boot them into tank mode for the rest of the year.
The Halos have either won or tied each of their last four series, but they’re 1-3 in their last four games. Shohei Ohtani will take the mound tonight, so if there’s any game to take from the AL West-leading Houston Astros, it’s this game today.
The Astros haven’t been as good as they’ve been during most of the season lately, as they’ve won just four of their last ten. Perhaps the Angels caught them at the right time.

Angels Pitcher Today
Ohtani is pitching for the Angels today. He has a 2.97 ERA, which is the third-best in the American League. He has an incredible 9-1 record, and was the AL All-Star Game starter on the mound.
He’s the unquestioned ace, and would be on almost every other American League team as well.

Mike Trout Injury
Mike Trout really hasn’t been making much progress with his calf injury. Joe Maddon has been casually talking about shutting him down for the rest of the year. I’m pretty worried about Trout’s chances to come back this year, and he certainly won’t be playing tonight.
He hasn’t even hit a rehab assignment yet.
Angels vs Astros Prediction Today
I actually do have the Angels winning today. I understand that the Astros are better than the Angels (although I’d like to see how it’d go if we were healthy this year). However, the Angels aren’t bad enough to get swept, and they have their Ace on the mound today.
They’ll be taking Game 1 of this series.
