The Tampa Bay Rays and Los Angeles Angels take on Wednesday with the first pitch scheduled for 7:07 p.m. EST. The game will take place at Angel Stadium of Anaheim and will only be available on local TV or via an MLB.tv subscription. The Rays will send Shane McClanahan to the mound and LA will have Shohei Ohtani.
Tampa Bay had been slipping a bit on their west coast road trip lately. Overall, the team is 6-3 on the trip, which is good. But they’ve lost three games in a row and didn’t look too competitive against LAA in the first two games of this series, losing by eight runs Monday and 12 runs last night. McClanahan is the guy to get her back on track if anyone can. The University of South Florida product was the team’s opening-day starter and has conceded just seven earned runs in its last 23.2 innings. In reality, this Angles line-up will be the best he has faced in quite some time.
The Angeles seem to have done nothing wrong lately, winning seven of their last eight games and shutting out their opponents three times in that span, including last night. As a group, the offensive has averaged nearly six runs per game in the last 10 and hit in double digits on each of their first two nights against Tampa Bay. Ohtani has conceded just nine earned runs in 26.1 innings this season while hitting 41 in that span.

Tips & Predictions
Moneyline pick: Angel -125
McClanahan on the mound should give the Rays a good shot, but their offense will have to slow down a bit, which doesn’t seem realistic against Ohtani. LAA is cruising along and has dominated the first two games of this series. Expect a closer game tonight but still an Angels win.
Player prop selection: Mike Trout over 0.5 homers (+400)
Trout has three home runs in his last two games. Just keep riding that hot beat. He’s the best player in the world for a reason
