For us we won't dare take the UNDER despite how enticing a pick that might be for line and total numbers watchers.  The Angels may have one of the better bullpens, Baltimore has the second worst in Major League Baseball.

The last seven meetings between these two teams have resulted in 8 or more runs scored.

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.
