Davis Daniel will get the start for the Los Angeles Angels. Daniel is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA in one relief appearance this season. He has not allowed an earned run in 3.0 innings pitched while striking out one batter. Daniel has never faced the Twins in his brief MLB career.
The Minnesota Twins will give the ball to Pablo Lopez. He is 10-8 with a 3.58 ERA in 30 starts this season. Lopez has allowed 73 earned runs in 183.2 innings of work while striking out 221 batters. He allowed two earned runs in 6.0 innings pitched against the Angels earlier this season. Lopez struck out nine batters and was charged with the loss.
Angels vs. Twins Betting Prediction
Minnesota Twins starter Pablo Lopez has been among the best pitchers in the American League this season. He ranks tied for eighth in the AL in ERA and second in strikeouts. While he took the loss in his previous meeting with the Los Angeles Angels, Lopez pitched well and was simply outdueled by Shohei Ohtani. That will not be the case on Friday as the Angels two-way star has been shut down for the season. Look for Lopez to once again pitch well as the Twins win by at least two runs.
