Griffin Canning has been okay this year despite being 0-3. a 4 ERA isnt great but much better than it should be (W/L record and ERA are irrelevant) He has 20% strikeout rate which is average. The Angels have won 8 of their last 12 and have a much better matchup against a lefty with their righty power bats.
Dbacks Alex Young is better than hes pitched but he has been awful on the road and has a 44% fly ball rate on the road. Which is well.... not good. he has a .33 woba and .485 SLG against righties. With 8 righties in the lineup, this could not be pretty for him. The fact that hes in a pitchrs park helps. However, theyre without Marte AND have lost 20 of their last 25

I'm backing the Angels again to get the job done and a slight lean towards the OVER. The over is 10-1 in the Angels last 11 home interleague games. The over is 20-6 in the Angels last 26 home games. Take the Angels on the ML and the OVER.
Young threw in relief last time out behind Caleb Smith and worked 5 1/3 innings of two-run ball. He opened the season in the bullpen before joining the rotation and making five starts.
Canning was saddled with a no-decision in his last start, when he gave up three runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Rockies at Coors Field. He has a 4.08 ERA over his last three starts.
The Los Angeles Angels are the hotter team and Arizona Diamondbacks have lost 20 of 25 games. The Diamondbacks are without their leading hitter in Ketel Marte. Starting pitcher Alex Young has not pitched well on the road this season, with an ERA of 5.00. With these odds I'll average down and put 50% of my wager on RL and 50% on the ML.
