Total: 9.00 | -115.00 Under
Now the Angels draw James Kaprielian and one of the better bullpens in the majors. Kaprielian has a 2.90 ERA. He's struck out 24 during the past 24 innings and hasn't given up more than three earned runs during any of his last seven starts.
Opposing Kaprielian is lefty Jose Suarez, who is 4-1 with a 1.80 ERA when pitching on the road. He has a 1.69 ERA in three appearances against the A's. Oakland is 12th out of 15 teams in the American League against lefties when it comes to batting average.
There is an 8 mph wind blowing out to left, but this is offset by the spacious field dimensions at Oakland Coliseum. It's a strong pitcher's park. This also is a getaway day game, which usually is a plus for the Under.
Bill Miller is slated to be the home plate umpire. The Under is 29-19 (60 percent) the past two seasons when Miller has been the home plate umpire.
