Los Angeles Angels Form
The Angels have started well this season. It seems that this year their team is solid and the general feeling is that there is more to come from them. However, the Halos lost the first game of this series with a score of 5-3 and then they went on to win the second game with a 5-4 score. They have now lost 6 of their last 8 games. This cost them the top spot of their division as they now fell to 3rd spot on the table. Los Angeles had a good offensive efficiency at the start of the season. Yet they have struggled of late as their average stands at 2.44 runs per game during their last nine MLB game. The Angels have averaged 5.84 runs per game and have allowed 3.16 runs per game on the road so far.
On the offensive side of the game, the Angels have been in a good form this season as they are placed on the 10th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 4.62 runs per game, while also being placed on the 13th spot in hitting at .247 and 4th in homers with a total of 62 so far.

Toronto Blue Jays Form
The Toronto Blue Jays are not playing well lately. However, they managed to win the first one of this series. However, they could not maintain that momentum as they lost the game two of the series on Wednesday. The Jays will need to reorganize and regroup quickly if they want to improve their standings. The Blue Jays have averaged 4.74 runs per game and have allowed 4.67 runs per game here at home this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Blue Jays have been good as they are the 7th best team in the league 7th in the league in scoring, putting up 4.77 runs per game, while also ranking 26th in hitting at .230 and 5th in homers with 62.

The Angels really need to keep the momentum in this one, after they won the game on Wednesday. On the other side, the Blue Jays are in good scoring form and expect a very interesting game in which the Angels will come out on top.
