Haren & Angels In Detroit To Tackle Tigers

August has not been kind to the Los Angeles Angels who have seen the opposition score almost at will while falling further behind the Texas Rangers in the AL West race. Manager Mike Scioscia hopes recent developments in Boston signal a turnaround for his club as they conclude a road trip in Detroit against the Tigers this weekend.

Saturday's contest is set for a 7:05 p.m. (ET) first pitch from Comerica Park where rookie Drew Smyly will toe the slab for the Motown crew against LA's Dan Haren. Initial offerings on the MLB odds board had the Halos at -115 with a 9½-run total.

The two clubs each entered the series trying to chase down their respective division leaders while locked in hand-to-hand combat for the two American League wild cards. Detroit was 1.5-games behind the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central and in a three-team deadlock alongside Oakland and Baltimore for the second wild card slot, 2.5-games behind the Tampa Bay Rays. Los Angeles was 2.5 behind the Tigers, A's and Orioles for the No. 2 wild card, and 8.5 games south of the Rangers in the West.

Detroit was an ever-so-slight favorite for Friday's contest which was still pending. A 9-run total was posted for the pitching matchup between the Tigers' Rick Porcello and Angels' Zack Greinke.

It goes without saying this series is important for both clubs, but it's especially so for the Angels who have seen their pitching fall apart in August. Three arms at the top of the culpability list are starters CJ Wilson plus Greinke and Haren. The Halos are 2-10 this month when that trio pitches, and the high-profile hurlers have combined for a 7.93 ERA. The club is 8-13 overall in August after completing a sweep in Boston earlier this week, and LA has been outscored 150-119 in the process.

Haren hasn't really been his old self all season, making the first trip of his career to the disabled list in July due to a bad back and being skipped his last start thanks to a day off on the schedule. His first three starts back from the DL were solid efforts, so Scioscia is hoping the extra rest helps get Haren back on track.

He was certainly on track the last time he faced the Tigers at Comerica Park, tossing a 6-hit complete game a little more than a year ago in a 5-1 triumph. Haren is 4-4 lifetime vs. Detroit with a 3.68 ERA.

Smyly is being recalled from Triple-A Toledo to replace the injured Doug Fister who has been temporarily sidelined with a groin pull. Fister is expected to miss just this one start, so Detroit will have to make a roster move before Saturday's game to plug Smyly into the lineup.

The southpaw out of the University of Arkansas opened the campaign as the No. 5 arm in Jim Leyland's rotation, and initially produced solid results before the league started to catch up to him and a strained intercostal muscle eventually sent Smyly to the DL. He'll be facing the Angels for the first time in his young career, with the Halos 21-19 this season vs. left-handers.

Detroit is also dealing with a minor ankle injury to slugger Miguel Cabrera. He left Thursday's contest early with a sore right ankle and was officially listed as questionable for the series opener against the Angels on Friday.

Comerica Park has proved hospitable for the Angels over the years. Los Angeles is 29-25 on this diamond after splitting the four played in Detroit a year ago. The Tigers took three of four in Anaheim a little more than a month ago, the 'over' cashing twice along with one 'push.'

MLB

Saturday, August 25

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Saturday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STREAKING

Hiroki Kuroda, New York Yankees (12-8, 2.96)

Kuroda continued his run of exceptional starts on Sunday, holding the Red Sox to a single run over eight innings to pick up his 12th win of the season. The right-hander has surrendered only eight runs over his last seven starts heading into action Saturday in Cleveland.

Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco Giants (14-7, 2.83)

Bumgarner racked up 10 strikeouts over eight shutout innings of a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers last time out and has put together a string of eight consecutive quality starts. The 23-year-old looks to extend that streak to nine when the Giants host the Braves.

SLUMPING

Dan Haren, Los Angeles Angels (8-10, 4.90)

Haren has taken back-to-back losses, surrendering 10 earned runs in his last seven innings pitched. Manager Mike Scioscia recently said he will consider using a four-man rotation if Haren can’t step up in his next outing in Detroit.

Josh Johnson, Miami Marlins (7-10, 3.73)

Johnson has taken the loss in three consecutive starts despite only allowing seven earned runs during that span. The Marlins have only provided the right-hander with three runs of support over his last three outings heading into a tough road battle in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.

Armadillo: Saturday's six-pack

-- Looks like the Red Sox are dumping salary, $261M worth, dealing four players (Crawford-Beckett-Gonzalez-Punto) to Dodgers for five guys, and not the hamburger chain. Five less-than-stellar players.

-- Complicating things might be Chad Billingsley's injury Friday night, so LA needs Beckett even more now.

-- Crawford's acquisition cements a CC-Kemp-Ethier outfield in LA, so Shane Victorino will become a free agent. Would Boston want him?

-- Best wishes to Rick Majerus, who has heart problems and has taken a leave of absence from coaching Saint Louis U this season. Former Army and Evansville coach Jim Crews is the interim coach. .

-- I've got no opinion on Lance Armstrong and cycling, seriously I don't, but I know he's done a hell of a lot of good fighting cancer.

-- On June 1st, the A's lost 2-0 in KC, their 9th loss in row and third time in five games they had been shut out. Since then, they're 46-27.


*********


Armadillo: Saturday's List of 13: Our major league baseball rankings.....

30) Astros—Probably the worst major league team since Detroit Tigers went 53-109 back in ’96. Moving to AL next year. Good luck.

29) Cubs—Boston’s old GM paid John Lackey/Carl Crawford a combined $32M a year, then beat feet with his two World Series rings for a lucrative new gig in ChiTown. He’s cleaning house at Wrigley, will take couple more years to tell how he’s doing.

Meanwhile, people in Boston are cleaning up the mess he left behind.

28) Indians—Can’t think of anything nice to say about the Tribe, but guy that played Mark Shapiro in Moneyball plays Malcolm McDowell’s nephew in TNT's Franklin & Bash, so there’s that.

??) Mets-- No idea where Mets rank, but the owners rank #30 out of 30, and #29 isn’t close. 0-4 this week vs Colorado/Houston. Astros were 2-16 in Jordan Lyles' starts before he beat the Mets Friday.

??) Red Sox— Is it too late to bring Terry Francona back? They're blowing up the whole team. Wouldn't be shocked if they bought Shane Victorino this winter; he's obviously not staying with the Dodgers.

8) Braves—Have bolstered pitching nicely by adding Maholm/Medlen to rotation, but they're having a bad week this week.

7) White Sox-- Adam Dunn is one of those guys that its just fun to watch him hit, unless he’s in a slump and on your fantasy team.

6) Dodgers-- Making tons of changes, but Billingsley's left Friday's game with an arm injury, which negates the potential acquisition of Beckett.

5) Giants-- Bochy's club roughed up the Dodgers this week, but does the trade Friday night shifts the balance of power in the NL West?

4) Rangers—Before you take their recent success for granted, look at their history before this administration took over and realize what a great job they’re doing.

3) Bronx— Brian Cashman, stop taking calls from the 206 area code. Montero/Pineda trade is all Seattle right now; M’s are 18-10 since dumping Ichiro, Bronx is 16-13 since adding him.

2) Reds—Aroldis Chapman has replaced Rivera as the game’s dominant closer. Haven’t missed a beat with star 1B Votto on shelf.

1) Nationals—Siena alum John Lannan will likely join rotation when Nats shut Strasburg down. Couple years ago, Lannan was their Opening Day starter. Still going to be little eerie when Strasburg sits out.

Angels seek 5th straight road win Saturday


LOS ANGELES ANGELS (66-60)

at DETROIT TIGERS (67-58)


First pitch: Saturday, 7:05 p.m. EDT
Line: Los Angeles -105, Detroit -105, Total: 10

The sizzling hot Angels look to stay unbeaten on their current road trip Saturday when they play the middle of a three-game set in Detroit.

Los Angeles is 4-0 so far on the road trip, sweeping the Red Sox and edging the Tigers 2-1 on Friday night. Detroit is also playing very well, winning six of eight games before Friday’s defeat. Saturday’s game features two starters that haven’t won in a while. L.A.’s Dan Haren returns to the mound after getting his turn skipped in the rotation. The Angels are 0-3 in his three starts this month, as Haren has allowed 12 runs (10 ER) in just seven innings over his past two outings. The Tigers counter with Drew Smyly who hasn’t pitched since July 7 because of a strained oblique. Smyly replaces scheduled starter Doug Fister, who was scratched due to right groin tightness. Smyly has pitched well at Comerica Park this year, carting a 3.86 ERA with an impressive 39 strikeouts and just nine walks in 32.2 innings. Although the Angels are hot, they are just 9-17 (.346) when facing a team with a winning percentage of 51% to 54% this season, and may be without slugging 1B Albert Pujols again. Pujols injured his calf on Wednesday and is questionable to return Saturday. The pick here is DETROIT to prevail at home.

This pair of three-star FoxSheets trends also back the Tigers:

Play On - Home teams when the money line is +125 to -125 (DETROIT) - starting a pitcher who walked <=1 hitters each of his last 2 outings against opponent starting a pitcher who was hit for 5+ runs in his last 2 outings. (49-21 since 1997.) (70%, +27.2 units. Rating = 3*).

Play Against - Road teams when the money line is +125 to -125 (L.A. ANGELS) - average offensive team (4.7 to 5.2 runs/game) against a decent starter (ERA=4.20 to 4.70)-AL, starting a pitcher who did not walk a hitter last outing. (33-11 since 1997.) (75%, +21.8 units. Rating = 3*).

Haren (8-10, 4.90 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) hasn’t won a road game since June 28, but his numbers are slightly better away from home this year (4.83 ERA, 1.33 WHIP) compared to in Anaheim (4.94 ERA, 1.43 WHIP). Although the Angels are just 8-14 when Haren takes the mound this season, he has been dominant against Detroit recently. In three starts versus the Tigers since 2008, Haren is 3-0 with a 1.44 ERA and 0.60 WHIP, tallying 14 K’s and just one walk in these 25 innings. This includes two complete games against them last year, where he threw a shutout at home and allowed just one run in a complete game in Detroit. Haren has been bailed out by his relievers frequently this season, but the Angels bullpen is wearing down, posting a major-league worst 6.99 ERA in August. The Angels ‘pen is 3-6 with a 1.58 WHIP during this month.

Smyly (4-3, 4.42 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) pitched very well in his two outings before going on the disabled list, going 2-0 with a 4.09 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, 14 K’s and just one walk. The Tigers are just 8-7 in Smyly’s 15 starts this season, including a mediocre 3-3 at home. Smyly has never faced the Angels in his brief career, but he benefits from knowing the Tigers have won nine of the past 15 home meetings with Los Angeles. Smyly also realizes he has a strong bullpen behind him whenever he pitches at home. Tigers relievers have a 3.22 ERA and 1.23 WHIP at Comerica Park this year, converting 14-of-19 save chances (74%).
