The Angels had all the momentum rolling through the first two games of the series against Boston. However, their first rainout since 1995 forced them into a split doubleheader Monday evening.

Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels

The Red Sox offensive inconsistencies have been a major problem this year. They’ve been a roller coaster ride continuously and currently find themselves at the bottom of that coaster. Boston has been shutout in the first two games of this series and is averaging just 3.70 runs per road contest. The Red Sox are 0 for 9 through the first two games with RISP and have just 7 hits in the contests.

They’ll try to give RH Steven Wright a bit of run support on Monday night.

Wright will be making just his 5th start of the season and this will be his 1st since June 4. In 4 relief appearances, the RH has allowed 6 runs over 6.1 innings pitched.

He did face the Angels once this year as he went 6.1 innings allowing just 2 runs.

Angels OF Kole Calhoun got Wright for a double and 2 RBIs.

The Angels recent streak of 13 of their last 16 has boosted them above the Astros into first place in the AL West. They’ve done this with home run derby participant Albert Pujols going just 3 for 25 over his last 6 games.

Los Angeles will send out LH Andrew Heaney, who brings in a 3-0 record with an ERA of just 1.32. Heaney has posted a quality start in all 4 of his GS thus far.

Heaney has seem to found his stride in Los Angeles as he struggled mightily in his rookie campaign for Miami. In 7 career outings, Heaney was 0-3 with an ERA of 5.83.

The Angels have made their comeback in the AL West with their dominant home play, combined with their record against the AL West.

[dfads params=’groups=63745&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

Los Angels has identical 27-18 records both at home and against the AL West.
