Los Angeles Dodgers vs Los Angeles Angels Match Preview and Free Picks
The Los Angeles Dodgers attempt to remain undefeated this month when they begin a seven-game road trip on Friday with the opener of a three-game interleague series against the Los Angeles Angels. After ending June with three straight losses, the Dodgers have begun July with four consecutive wins - including a 6-4 triumph over Pittsburgh on Wednesday that concluded a 6-4 homestand.
Yasmani Grandal and Chris Taylor each went 2-for-3 with three RBIs for the Dodgers, who outscored the Pirates 31-8 during the three-game sweep. Both players enter the series against the Angels on fire, as Grandal went 6-for-9 with a homer, five RBIs, five walks and five runs scored against Pittsburgh while Taylor went 8-for-12 with one blast, seven RBIs and three runs scored.
The Angels' sputtering offense cost them another game Thursday as they dropped to .500 (44-44) with a 4-1 loss at Seattle. Martin Maldonado recorded two of the team's six hits and Kole Calhoun drove in the lone run with a sacrifice fly for the Angels, who concluded a 3-7 road trip during which they scored fewer than three runs in six of the seven defeats.
