The division rival Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels are set to renew hostilities on Saturday when they meet at Angel Stadium.

The Athletics will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Paul Blackburn in this game. Blackburn has a 2-1 record and a 3.05 ERA this season.

It’ll be Tyler Skaggs toeing the rubber for the Angels in this contest. Left hander Skaggs is 1-1 with a 3.99 ERA so far this season.

Blackburn came away with a victory against San Francisco on Monday despite yielding five runs and eight hits in 6 1/3 innings. The 23-year-old rookie from California has gone two straight outings without allowing a home run after serving up one in each of his previous three turns. Blackburn, who will be facing Los Angeles for the first time, is 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in three major-league starts on the road.

Skaggs will be making his sixth start of the season and first since April 28 due to an oblique injury. The 26-year-old Californian was tagged for five runs in each of his first two outings this year before giving up a total of three in 19 innings over his next three turns, but he recorded just one victory in that span. Skaggs suffered his only loss of 2017 at Oakland on April 6, when he surrendered five runs on five hits and three walks over 5 1/3 frames in falling to 0-2 in three career starts against the Athletics.

Oddsmakers currently have the Angels listed as 158-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Los Angeles Angels won their series opener against the Oakland Athletics to even their record at .500 and, more importantly, climb within two games of the second wild card in the American League. Los Angeles attempts to continue its ascent when it hosts Oakland on Saturday for the middle contest of the three-game set.

The Angels overcame a four-run deficit in the series opener, scoring twice in the sixth inning and four times in the seventh en route to an 8-6 triumph. Superstar Mike Trout has been red-hot at the plate as he is 13-for-30 during a seven-game hitting streak that features five multi-hit performances. Oakland managed only six hits as it lost for the sixth time in seven road contests, although five were for extra bases. Rookie Matt Chapman belted a three-run homer, his seventh blast of the season, while Khris Davis recorded two doubles and a pair of RBIs as the Athletics suffered their seventh consecutive defeat at Angel Stadium.

Los Angeles won its last outing, a 8-6 result against the Athletics on August 04. Bettors who backed the Angels at -127 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (14) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Oakland, they were a 8-6 loser as they battled the Angels on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Angels at -127 were rewarded, while the 14 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
