The Los Angeles Angels will be looking for another win as they host the Minnesota Twins this Wednesday. The Angels are currently 22-26 after losing the Twins in their last game. Meanwhile, the Twins are 32-16 after beating the Angels in their last game. Now, both teams will be looking to improve upon their respective records in this game.
Twins Look To Sweep Series
Minnesota Twins entered the 2019 season with hopes of taking another giant step forward. The team is projected to win around 84 games this season so it is expected to remain slightly above the .500 mark throughout the majority of the season. However, the team is healthy once again and has started the season off as one of the best teams in baseball. The team is currently 32-16 and is in first place in the AL Central division. In addition, the team won its first two games in Los Angeles against the Angels and now has the chance to sweep the series with a victory on Wednesday.
The Minnesota Twins are led by outfielder Eddie Rosario who was tremendous last season. Last season, Rosario hit 24 home runs along with 77 RBIs. However, he was also a sold contact hitter as he had a .288 batting average. So far this season, he already has 13 home runs along with 35 RBIs. One reason for his early success this season is due to the addition of Nelson Cruz to the active roster whose power has led to more opportunities for Rosario to thrive in.
Angels Look To Inch Closer To .500 Record
The Los Angeles Angels entered the 2019 season with the hopes of finishing the season with a winning record. The team is projected to win around 82 games this season so it is expected to remain slightly above the .500 mark throughout the majority of the season. So far this season, the team has looked average as it has won 22 of its first 48 games this season. However, the team enters this game off of a disappointing loss against the Twins yesterday. With another game against the Twins up next, Los Angeles’ pitching will look for a much better performance.
The Los Angeles Angels are led by outfielder Mike Trout who has been tremendous over the last few seasons. Last season, Trout hit 39 home runs along with 79 RBIs as he was an MVP candidate for the majority of the season. However, Trout is also a magician in the field as he has made tons of dazzling plays in the outfield since he came into the league. So far this season, however, he has been a bit underwhelming as he only has a .291 batting average along with 11 home runs and 28 RBIs.
