Angels (65-74) @ Athletics (79-58)
(L) Patrick Sandoval (5.24 ERA) v. (R) Tanner Roark (4.04 ERA)
Wednesday, Sep 4th @ 7:07PM
Patrick Sandoval, coming off a promising 9-strikeout outing against the Rangers, will take the mound tonight facing the A’s Tanner Roark, a consistent backend starter traded from the Reds at the trade deadline. Roark is a workhorse and has 30 starts or more each of the last three seasons and is on track to do the same this year. On the season, Roark has a 4.25 FIP to Sandoval’s 3.31 (albeit in a smaller sample).
I won’t mention it again.
