‘Buyer Declaration→DH Sweep’ LAA, TOR and the Fateful Tripleheader

With a 14.7 percent chance of making the postseason, the Los Angeles Angels declared themselves buyers, and the incredible play of Shohei Ohtani (29) has boosted their chances of making the wild card.

The Angels swept Game 1 and Game 2 of an away doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan on April 28.

Four straight wins. The Angels are now 54-49 on the season with a .524 winning percentage. They are still third in the division, but have closed the gap on the third wild card spot to three games.

The current third wild card, the Toronto Blue Jays, are 57-46 for a .553 winning percentage. In their last 10 games, they’re 5-5, which isn’t great.

With that in mind, the Los Angeles Angels and Toronto will host a three-game series from April 29-31. This three-game series could be a game-changer for the wild card.

Ohtani pitched a complete game shutout in the first game of the doubleheader against Detroit on Sunday, so he’ll be the designated hitter for the three-game series against Toronto.

The Angels will send their newest acquisition, Lucas Giolito, to the mound for Game 1 on the 29th. The Angels are looking forward to seeing what their newest acquisition can do.

The Angels, who are 8-2 in their last 10 games, can keep their postseason hopes alive with a successful three-game series against Toronto.
