Summary:

Both starting pitchers can be classified as average at best. They’ve both had control issues at times this season, and while Canning has cleared his up in recent starts, there’s no guarantee he’ll be able to keep it consistent. The two teams played to a 9-8 scoreline in the first game of the series on Tuesday and with no playoff implications for either team, expect another high-scoring, ugly game. The over should hit, and with a lefty on the mound for Arizona this very well could be the game where Albert Pujols passes Willie Mays on the all-time home run list.

Details:

Diamondbacks starter Alex Young has been lucky not to allow more runs in his recent starts–his 1.40 WHIP and seven walks in 15.2 innings in the month of September are not positive indications. He did win his last time out, but he struck out just one and Mike Trout, Anthony Rendon, and the rest of the big bats in the Angels’ lineup like to punish pitchers who aren’t able to strike them out

The first game of the series had a total of 17 run scored between the two teams. Seven of the Angels’ last 11 games have had double digits in runs scored, while five of Arizona’s last seven games have totaled 10 or more. Both starting pitchers have an ERA well above 4.00 this season, while Young’s road ERA is above 5.00. Mike Trout is hitting almost as well as ever, hitting 16 home runs in 49 games, while the Angels, as a team, have hit 69 home runs. This will be another high-scoring game on Thursday, so i take the over here.

Prediction: Over 9.5
