Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Angels Prediction

Heading into Wednesday’s matchup between Boston and Los Angeles, the two teams are trending in opposite directions. The Red Sox have rattled off 6 straight wins, bringing their record 2 games over .500. On the other side, the Angels are playing themselves out of contention in the AL West. Even though Reid Detmers is an up-and-comer, I don’t see the Angels pulling out the win, as they are likely to be without Mike Trout for tonight’s matchup.
