The Miami Marlins and the Los Angeles Angels will play game two of their back-to-back this evening. The Angels took last night's meeting behind a strong effort from Michael Lorenzen in his Angels debut, winning the game 6-2.

The Marlins covered in their first three games of the season, but they couldn't shield their struggles at the plate yesterday. Third-year outfielder did provide some life by going yard twice last night, but Miami simply needs more from their lineup.

The Angels showed signs of life with their second win of the season last night. A big game from outfielder Brandon Marsh was nice, but the big bats of Shohei Ohtani, Mike Trout, and Anthony Walsh are still looking ti get going.

Pitching matchup


Jesus Luzardo (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will take the mound for Miami. The third-year pitcher came over from Oakland at the deadline, and gave the Marlins reliable back-end rotation play last season. Luzardo posted a 6-10 record, with a 6.61 ERA and 98 strikeouts last season.



Patrick Sandoval (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will make the home start Los Angeles. The third-year flamethrower improved last season, reaching career bests of 94 strikeouts and a 3.62 ERA, while posting a 3-6 record in 2021. Sandoval will look to bring stability to a shaky rotation beyond Shohei Ohtani.


The Angels coud very well double back and pick up the win and cover this evening. They'll have advantages on the mound and at the plate, and they should take care of a young Marlins team for the second time in as many nights.

Take LAA's run line for this interleague battle.
