Friday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take Detroit Tigers/Los Angeles Angels OVER (Friday, 10:10pm EST) Two of the American League’s offensive powerhouses hook up on Friday night in Anaheim as the Angels host the Tigers. There’s no question that both of these teams can hit, evidenced by their numbers this season and in the past. However, that’s not the main reason that we like this game to go Over the total. Neither Tyler Skaggs nor Drew Smyly is throwing the ball very well lately, and these are not the kinds of teams that you all of a sudden figure it out against. Skaggs has given up five runs and six runs, respectively in each of his last two outings. And neither was against a strong hitting team as he pitched against the Mariners and Rangers. For Smyly, he’s been in a funk recently as well. Over his last four starts, the left-hander has a robust 5.91 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. The Tigers also have a susceptible bullpen that may get some heavy work in this one. The Angels improved their bullpen significantly with some recent trades, but they still have some holes in middle relief. It’s hard to imagine a low scoring affair in this one, so we’ll play Over the total. Monster weekend ahead and it all starts on Friday with action in MLB, WNBA, & CFL.

The Angels and the Tigers will open a four game set in Los Angeles tonight. The Halos have the best home record in AL at 35-18 so far this season, while Detroit has the best road record at 30-17. Something has got to give tonight, and I’m leaning toward the home team.
Here are my keys to the game:
1. Pitching – Garret Richards has limited the Tigers line-up to AVG of .190 with 10 strike outs. Considering the 26 year old has only allowed two runs on 14 hits over 22 1/3 innings in his last three games, I think he will give the Tigers offense a hard time tonight as well. Detroit with counter with reigning Cy Young winner Max Sherzer, who was less than spectacular in a no decision in his last appearance.
2. The Tigers in LA- Detroit has lost their last six games at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
3. X-factor – Mike Trout has been hot in his last 10 games, hitting .356 with four home runs, five doubles and 12 RBIs.
Selection: This is a play on the Los Angeles Angels (10*).

Baltimore was two innings away from sweeping the Angels but it allowed two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to lose by a run. Still, the Orioles were glad to take two of the three games to square back to even on the current roadtrip before starting a four-game series in Seattle. Baltimore is still a solid 29-22 on the road this season and holds onto a three-game lead over the Yankees and Blue Jays in the American League East. The Orioles are 14-2 in their last 16 games following a loss. Seattle lost two of three against the Mets to open the week and is now 9.5 games out in the American League West but it still sitting in the second Wild Card spot in the American League. The Mariners could be a lot better but have not been able to get the job done at home where they are just 25-28 on the season. They send Hisashi Iwakuma to the hill and he is having a solid season with a 2.95 ERA and 0.99 WHIP over 15 starts but while Seattle is 5-1 in his six road starts, it is just 4-5 in his nine home starts despite his numbers being even better at Safeco Field. The issue is run support as the Mariners are averaging just 2.8 rpg in those nine home outings. Additionally, the Mariners are 0-4 in Iwakuma’s last four starts as a home favorite of -110 to -150. Baltimore turns to Wei-Yin Chen and while he has been average, he is winning. He is 10-3 on the season including 5-1 on the road thanks to a ton of run support as he is getting 6.4 rpg through eight road games. He struggled the first couple months but he has a 3.88 ERA in June and July while allowing three runs or less in eight of those nine starts. The Orioles are 8-3 in Chen’s last 11 road starts against teams with a winning record. Play (971) Baltimore Orioles
