The Los Angeles Angels have alternated wins and losses over their last five games, as they look to bounce back from a 7-5 defeat to the Houston Astros as minus-186 home favorites Sunday.
Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver is 3-0 with a 1.00 ERA in his last four efforts against the Cleveland Indians.
