The Baltimore Orioles will start left hander Wei Yin Chen on Sunday as he throws his 17th game of the year. Chen has had recent success over his past three games against weak hitting teams but on his start on June 28th against the Cleveland Indians he has been lit up for six runs in 6 1/3rd innings pitched. Chen will have his hands full on Sunday afternoon against the right handed power hitters of the LA Angels on a hot Sunday afternoon. Hot weather aids the hitters because the ball carries very well at Anaheim Stadium in that climate. At issue for the Baltimore Orioles has been the performance of their offense in the 2012 year. The club over their past seven games has a team batting average of just .203 and is pushing across just 3.4 runs per game. Baltimore has dropped 8 of their past 12 games. Left hander Brad Mills will make his first start for the LA Angels on Sunday. The Angels hurler has two career starts against Baltimore over the past three seasons and allowed three earned runs in 12 2/3rds innings of work and is 2-0 in those games. Mills gets upgraded today pitching against an anemic hitting line up of Baltimore. When you look at the game logs for the Angels what really sticks out is how the club has begun to crush opposing left handed pitchers on the season once the club settled with Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo in the everyday lineup. With Trout and Trumbo in the lineup every day we have seen the production of Albert Pujols take off dramatically along with Torii Hunter and Howie Kendrick. The Angels power right handed hitters get the job done on a hot day in Anaheim making the Angels the best bet at the online sportsbooks.
