Los Angeles Angels Probable Pitchers and Starting Lineup vs. Colorado Rockies, June 25


Los Angeles Angels Probable Pitchers and Starting Lineup vs. Colorado Rockies, June 25

repeat please? The Los Angeles Angels played one of their best games, if not the best, in franchise history, defeating the Colorado Rockies by a score of 25–1. Mickey Moniak and Hunter Renfro each had five-hit games, David Fletcher hit a home run and Eduardo Escobar had a big day in his Angels debut. The Angels are hoping to win the series this afternoon at Coors.

The Angels will look to Tyler Anderson to try to get them another win as they face one of his former teams, the Rockies. Anderson spent the first four seasons of his career as a member of the Rockies and had a 4.69 ERA in 73 appearances (71 starts). Anderson pitched well one last time, allowing two runs over five innings in the win against the Royals. The Angels are 9-4 in their starts and will be looking to improve on that record today.

The Rockies will square off with fellow southpaws Austin Gomber, Nolan Arenado, 29, was one of the main guys in the trade that sent the legend to St. Louis, but things haven’t been working out too well for Gomber. He has an ERA of 7.25 in 15 starts this season, including an ugly 9.40 ERA at Coors Field. The Angels batter is expected to put up another big performance today.

It’s hard to pick someone to return after setting the franchise record for runs scored, but Shohei Ohtani recorded just one hit in seven at-bats last night and he struck out a few times. Let’s see him spend a big day in it. He had a home run in three at-bats against Gomber.

David Fletcher had a big game last night in his return to the Angels, and he will be looking for another big game today. Fletcher hit a two-run single to give the Angels an early lead, and they hit a three-run homer to increase their lead to 23–0. He recorded four hits in six at-bats and was all over the place. Fletcher has two hits in three at-bats in his career against Gomber, perhaps he can add a few more.
