Los Angeles has little margin for error in its pursuit of AL West-leading Oakland after dropping a game in the standings to fall 4 1/2 games back despite winning five of six. Expect the offense to show up on Wednesday as the Over is 3-1-1 in Angels’ last 5 during game 3 of a series.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Blue Jays RH Marcus Stroman (4-2, 3.44 ERA) vs. Angels LH C.J. Wilson (8-6, 4.23)
Stroman has pitched superbly in his last three starts, permitting a total of three runs over 21 2/3 innings, but has only one win to show for it. He will need run support and will get it as the Over is 6-2-1 in Blue Jays’ last 9 Wednesday games.
Wilson fell to 3-4 lifetime against Toronto after allowing five runs in six innings May 12. Expect more of the same.
