Today’s matchup is between the Los Angeles Angels (22-28) and the Oakland Athletics (30-22). The Angels have won 3 of their last 5 games & the Athletics have won 2 of their last 5 games.

The Angels are starting Alex Cobb (RHP), on the mound who is 2-2 on the season pitching a 4.78 ERA, 2.32 FIP, .328 wOBA, K% of 29.2%, BB% of 8.3%, 89.2 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.52 WHIP in 26.1 innings pitched.

The Athletics are starting Frankie Montas (RHP), who is 5-4 on the season with a 4.92 ERA, 4.67 FIP, .351 wOBA, K% of 23.6%, BB% of 6.8%, 90.1 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.43 WHIP in 53.0 innings pitched.

The Angels are the 27th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Athletics are 11th.

On the hitting side, the Angels have a .319 wOBA and a .312 OBP. The Athletics have a .317 wOBA and a .312 OBP. The Angels have 65 HRs this season while the Athletics have 70 HRs.

It's interesting that Alex Cobb has a 2.32 FIP but a 1.52 WHIP. He's gets himself into trouble but his K% is what's saving him. Frankie Montas is a below-average pitcher which is interesting because if you would just look at their ERA's you would think they were very close in talent. Athletics have better relieving & hitting so this one is tough to call but I'm taking the Angels.
