Boston at Los Angeles

Saturday 07/18 09:05 PM Eastern

1.5 units on Los Angeles -138 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.59)  RESULT: WIN

Los Angeles managed only two hits last night, but got a 1-0 win over the snakebitten Red Sox, who've underachieved all year. The win keeps the Angels in first place in the American League West, while the last-place Red Sox dropped six games below .500. Boston is 3,000 miles from home and turns to Rick Porcello (5-9, 5.90 ERA), a high priced bust. The Red Sox are 2-7 in Porcello's last nine starts, and he's 1-5 on the road with a 7.16 ERA. Porcello's run of terrible starts began against Los Angeles on May 22 when he was rocked for seven runs on as many hits and three walks in 4+ innings. Los Angeles is on a 12-3 run, and the Angels are 22-8 as a home favorite. Righty Garrett Richards (9-6, 3.53) is having another strong campaign, and the Angels are 22-9 in his last 31 starts, including 23-8 when he starts at home. Boston is 2-6 against Los Angeles, plus 3-7 here in Anaheim. Play the Los Angeles Angels.
