The Angels and Oakland Athletics will play game 2 of their 6-Game series on Wednesday at Angel stadium of Anaheim. The Angels are 6-2 straight up Vs the A's so far this season.

Los Angeles Angels 

Los Angeles have played a good game on Tuesday beating the A's 3-1 at home and it was a good bounce back after they have lost last series 1-3 to Texas Rangers. J.Suarez had a good game on the mound allowing 5 hits and 0 Earned Runs in 5 innings pitched in game 1. The Angeles are 26th in runs scored and 14th in runs allowed this season.

Shohei Ohtani (9-6, 2.81 ERA) will be on the mound for the Angels in game 2 on Wednesday, Ohtani's last start was against Texas Rangers and he went 6 innings allowing 2 earned runs and had 11 strikeouts in a game that ended as a 0-2 loss for the Angels.

Oakland Athletics 

Oakland Athletics had their 3rd straight loss on Tuesday Vs the Angels. Oakland have been really bad Vs the Angels this season as they are only 2-6 straight up so far so they have to perform better to be able to beat the the Angels on the road. C.Irvin allowed 6 hits and 2 Earned runs in 6 innings pitched in game 1. Oakland are 29th in runs scored and 22nd in runs allowed this season.

Probable pitcher:
