Boston Red Sox vs Los Angeles Angels Predictions 5/22/2023


Los Angeles‘ two-game winning streak was broken when they lost the middle game of their Saturday night home series against the Twins.


With a 24-23 record going into Sunday, the Angels were in third place in the AL West, five games back of the Rangers for first place.


On Saturday night, Los Angeles received two hits from Gio Urshela and one from Hunter Renfroe (run), but they were not enough to win.


Shohei Ohtani hit his eleventh home run of the year in a losing effort for the Angels. After pitching 4.2 innings and giving up three runs on five hits, four walks, and three strikeouts, Patrick Sandoval (3-3) was given the loss.


Los Angeles has 231 RBIs and 60 home homers so far this season. They accumulated 66 doubles, walked 143 times, and scored 235 runs.


The Los Angeles Angels currently have a .329 team on-base percentage and a .261 team batting average for the season. The Angels are 


eighth in baseball with a .420 team slugging percentage and 5.00 runs scored per game. They have 420 base hits and were hit 399 times, ranking them 14th in MLB.


For the Angels, Chase Silseth will make his sixth appearance and second start of the year on the mound for this game.


This year, he pitched 11.2 innings and is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA, 1.457 WHIP, six walks, and ten strikeouts. Tuesday night against the Orioles on the road, Silseth made his final appearance and first start of the year.


He pitched 3.1 innings in a game the Angels ultimately lost 7-3, giving up four runs on six hits, one walk, and five strikeouts.


The Red Sox are Silseth’s first opponent in his ninth start and 13th major league appearance overall. In this game, he makes his eighth appearance and fifth start at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.


In 22.1 innings pitched, Silseth is 0-1 with a 6.45 ERA, a 1.746 WHIP, 12 walks, and 22 strikeouts.


  • The total stayed UNDER in 4 of the LA Angels’ last six matches against Boston.
  • The total remained UNDER in 4 of the LA Angels’ last five games at home.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of the LA Angels’ last eight games at home against Boston.

Boston Red Sox vs Los Angeles Angels. The MLB pick for this game is the Boston Red Sox. Since the Angels’ bullpen is questionable, Silseth lasted only 3.1 innings in either of his major league appearances this year.


Los Angeles’ ability to muster enough arms to win this match will be tested, especially if Silseth falters. Houck did not exactly light up the world on fire, but he already recorded three victories this year. 


The Red Sox have a strong lineup that can overcome strong pitching, but that is different from the situation they are in right now.


Even with critical components missing, Boston still has some momentum and may exercise their muscles. Take the Red Sox on the road in this matchup; more than Trout and Ohtani is needed for the Angels.


The Boston Red Sox will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
