The pitching matchups for the final game of this series will feature the veteran Bartolo Colon on the mound for the Athletics as he opposes Angels right hander Jerome Williams. Colon was selected into the All Star game based on some outstanding numbers during the first half of the season. Colon compiled a 12-3 record with an ERA of 2.70 along with a WHIP of 1.11. The Oakland hurler has put up some quality numbers on the road as he is 7-2 with an ERA under nine working 58 1/3rd innings on the highway this campaign. Jerome Williams has had an up and down year for the Angels. He has seen time in the bullpen this season and had some spot starts filling in for ineffective or injured starters. The bottom end of the Angels rotation has not performed well this season and is a big component for the team’s lack of success early on in the season. Williams has worked 58 innings this season and is 5-5 with an ERA of 4.60. His past three starts have been bad as he has given up four earned runs or more in each game and couldn’t get out of the fourth inning in each game.
With our free pick on Sunday we will play on the Oakland Athletics at -125 odds against the LA Angels. Bartolo Colon has been in outstanding form all season long while Jerome Williams is struggling for the Halos. The Angels bats are not hitting enough to cover the runs needed today to beat Oakland.
