MLB Interleague Betting: Falling Angels Face Flopping Phillies

MLB Interleague Betting: Falling Angels Face Flopping Phillies

A pair of struggling clubs clash in Southern California tonight as Anaheim hosts Philadelphia in Major League Baseball interleague action. The Angels are on a 4-6 skid while the Phiilies sport a 5-5 recent record. First pitch flies at 10:05 PM ET on August 12, 2014, at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

LA Angels: Need C.J. Wilson to be better tonight

Perceived as their second starter, behind Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson needs to get better in a hurry as the LA Angels have fallen 3.5 games behind Oakland for first overall in the AL West. Wilson has lasted just seven innings over his last two starts allowing ten runs on 12 hits and six walks in loses to the Dodgers (7-0) and Tampa Bay (10-3). A start versus the Phillies, and their MLB 26th ranked .241 team batting average should be just what the doctor ordered and we expect a Wilson rebound tonight.

Philadelphia Phillies: Playing out the string on long season of losing

After appearing in the MLB postseason over five straight seasons, including 2008 when they won the World Series, Philadelphia will miss the playoff party for a third straight year. The Phillies are sporting a dismal 53-66 record, they are 11.5 games behind Washington, and sit dead last in the NL East. RHP Jerome Williams (2-5 ERA 6.71) who allowed ten runs on 13 hits in a 12-2 loss to Cleveland on August 1st gets the call for Philadelphia. 2014 MLB All-Star MVP Mike Trout and Crew are licking their chops.
