Los Angeles is painted red and all is right with the world. The Angels (46-45) are cruising with momentum heading into the divisional showdown coming off a dramatic Freeway Series victory over the Dodgers featuring a walk-off and Shohei Ohtani game-winning home run. Despite dropping 2-of-3 just a week ago in Seattle, the Halos have shown a newfound ability to battle back late in games and come through when needed against tough pitching. Unlike the Angels, the Mariners (57-34) hit a road bump in their interleague action over the weekend, dropping 2-of-3 to the Rockies. Garrett Richards will start the series off on the mound for the Halos, looking to build upon his last outing against the Mariners where he earned the win after tossing 5 1/3 innings of three run ball.

Angels vs. Mariners: The One to Watch
The Rook is rocking. Depsite starting only one game during the Freeway Series, David Fletcher made quite the impact throughout, both in the field and as a pinch hitter. With his number being called more consistently in addition to his .323 batting average against right handed starters, look for Fletch to continue his hot streak against a team he's already registered five hits, including a double and triple against in just four career games.
