Mariners and Angels Open Second-Half with AL West Title on the Mind

Los Angeles inching closer to division leader

The Angels probably did not want to stop playing for four days because of their hot streak heading into the All-Star break. Prior to the break the Angels won five straight games and were 9-1 in their last 10 games played. It pulled them to within 1.5 games of first place in the West behind the Athletics. Now, they can push the Mariners further out in the division standings to open the second-half of the season.

Seattle enjoying successful season to this point

Hisashi Iwakuma will be on the mound for Seattle to open the second-half of the season in Los Angeles. Iwakuma is 8-4 with a 2.98 ERA this season. He was an All-Star in 2013. In his last start, this past Saturday, he came within one out of recording his first career complete game shutout when he allowed a home run to Brandon Moss of the Athletics in a 6-2 win. He is looking forward to facing the division-rival Angels to open the second-half of the year.

When the Major League Baseball season resumes on Friday night, the Angels and Mariners will open a three-game set at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. We are going to bet 15 percent of our bankroll on the host Angels and their hot streak as they take down the Mariners in the opener of this AL West series over at Bovada.lv on Friday.
