The Angels, though, will have the game tipped to their favor to a point as they are a game over the five hundred at home compared to the Athletics who are 4 games under the five hundred mark on the year.

The Athletics, by all means, should be losing this game, but the difference maker is the fact that Frankie Montas is a great pitcher on the year for the Athletics and he is starting the game. What else will help the Athletics out is the fact that Mike Trout, the power hitter for the Angels, has been very streaky on the year and has been battling injuries like he has most of his career. Look for the streaky offense of the Angels to cost them in this game as Montas is able to win this game for the team. Final Score Prediction, Oakland Athletics win 6-2.
