My Prediction: This is a rematch from last Saturday when Chatwood beat Kuroda 6-1 at Dodger Stadium. Chatwood pitched 7 strong innings and the Angels got to the Dodgers bullpen for 4 runs in the 8th inning. Despite an 0-2 record in his last 3 starts, Kuroda’s ERA is 1.96 and has a WHIP of 0.87. He has lost both starts in his career against the Angels, but has been given little run support. Chatwood has been great in his last 2 starts, both on the road. The Angels are getting hot right now. They have won 8 of 10 while the Dodgers have lost 5 of 7. The Angels are 7-2 against the Dodgers over the last 2 years. This should be a low scoring game, but in the end the Angels will pull it out again to continue their recent dominance over their Southern California rivals.
