If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Tuesday when the Oakland Athletics and the Los Angeles Angels meet at Angel Stadium.

Chris Smith will be the starting pitcher for the Athletics on this day. Right hander Smith is 0-3 this season with a 5.57 ERA.

Smith’s opponent in this one will be Troy Scribner. The Angels right hander has a 4.00 ERA to go along with a 2-1 record this season.

Smith remains in search of his first win of the season as he makes his eighth major-league start after losing in Baltimore on Aug. 21. The 36-year-old Californian was tagged by the Orioles for five runs – four earned – and six hits over 4 1/3 innings in his shortest turn of the year. Smith has made two career relief appearances against the Angels, allowing two hits with four walks and five strikeouts in 3 1/3 scoreless frames.

Scribner will be making his fourth consecutive start after beginning his season – and major-league career – with a pair of relief outings. The 26-year-old native of Connecticut suffered his first loss on Thursday, when he gave up three runs and three hits in five innings against Texas. Scribner escaped with a no-decision in his first career turn versus Oakland on Aug. 4 after yielding five runs – two earned – on two hits and four walks over four frames.

Oddsmakers currently have the Angels listed as 146-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Los Angeles Angels expect to have Mike Trout back in the lineup Tuesday as they host the Oakland Athletics for the middle contest of their three-game series. Los Angeles was without the superstar for Monday’s opener due to a stiff neck but came away with a 3-1 victory to climb within one game of Minnesota for the second wild card in the American League.

Trout is mired in an 0-for-17 slump but has belted 24 homers against Oakland, his highest total against any opponent. The Angels improved to 3-5 on their 10-game homestand as Martin Maldonado went 3-for-3 and scored twice while Andrew Heaney put forth his best effort since returning from Tommy John surgery, allowing one run and two hits over six innings while recording a career-high 10 strikeouts. Los Angeles lost the first two sets on its homestand and hopes to avoid a third straight series setback against Oakland, which took two of three earlier this month. The Athletics registered only four hits in the win, including a solo homer by Dustin Garneau for their lone run of the contest.

The Angels were a 3-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Athletics. That made winners of bettors who got Los Angeles at -140 on the moneyline, while the total score (4) was good news for UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Oakland was a 3-1 loser on the road against the Angels. Bettors on Los Angeles at -140 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (4) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
