The Los Angeles Angels were shut out 7-0 last night by David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays. Ace Jered Weaver will be hungry to one-up Price tonight and get his team back in the win column as the Angels look to gain ground on the Rays in the AL Wildcard race.
Weaver has posted Cy Young-like numbers this season, going 15-2 with a 2.22 ERA and 0.920 WHIP in 21 starts. The right-hander has been untouchable at home, going 8-1 with a 1.23 ERA and 0.685 WHIP in 10 starts. His home ERA is the best in baseball.
James Shields has taken a step back from last season, going 10-7 with a 4.02 ERA and 1.314 WHIP in 24 starts. He is still a solid starter, but he’s not even on the same planet as Weaver, who is 4-1 with a 2.47 ERA and 0.972 WHIP in seven career starts against Tampa Bay.
The Angels are 44-14 in Weaver’s last 58 starts as a home favorite, including 11-1 in his last 12 starts as a home favorite of -125 to -175. Los Angeles is 7-0 in Weaver’s last 7 starts vs. American League East and 8-0 in his last 8 starts after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game. Bet the Angels Friday.
