Oddsmakers currently have the BALTIMORE listed as 130 point favorites versus the LA ANGELS, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.5.

Albert Pujols is far removed from his peak as the best player in baseball, but he is still capable of putting on some impressive performances. Pujols will try to continue making history and lead the Los Angeles Angels to a three-game sweep when they visit the Baltimore Orioles for the series finale on Sunday.

Pujols became the fourth player in history to reach 2,000 RBIs for his career on Thursday and, after sitting out Friday to rest, went 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs on Saturday to lead the Angels to a 7-2 victory. The three hits moved Pujols into a tie for 21st on the all-time list with Hall of Famer Dave Winfield (3,110) while the two homers moved him within 19 of tying Willie Mays (660) for fifth on the all-time list. The Orioles (13-26) are losers of four in a row and own the worst record in the American League after falling to 5-15 at home with Saturday’s setback. Baltimore will try to avoid the sweep behind left-hander John Means while Los Angeles counters with rookie righty Griffin Canning.

Tony’s Pick TEAM
LA ANGELS -140

PITCHING MATCHUP: Angels RH Griffin Canning (1-0, 4.66 ERA) Vs. Orioles LH John Means (4-3, 2.48)

Canning earned his first major league win at Detroit on Tuesday, allowing two runs and four hits over 5 1/3 innings while striking out seven in his second career start. The 22-year-old owns 13 strikeouts in 9 2/3 innings but was held under 90 pitches in each of his first two outings. Canning posted a 0.56 ERA in three starts for Triple-A Salt Lake before being recalled.

Means is settling into the Baltimore rotation and held the Boston Red Sox to one run and three hits over seven innings on Monday to earn his third win in his last four outings. The 26-year-old rookie has allowed one or no earned runs in eight of his nine appearances and owns 29 strikeouts across 32 2/3 innings. Means is 2-1 with a 1.56 ERA in five games – three starts – at home.

WALK-OFFS

1. The Orioles recalled RHP Jimmy Yacabonis and optioned RHP Evan Phillips to Triple-A Norfolk prior to Saturday’s contest and Yacabonis allowed one run in two innings of relief in the setback.

2. Los Angeles traded RHP Chris Stratton to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for cash considerations.

3. Baltimore LF Dwight Smith Jr. belted his seventh homer on Saturday.

PREDICTION: Angels 2, Orioles 1
