This series represents the ideal opportunity for them to get right back into the mix, but they haven’t really been showing signs that they have the ability to do so. The offense is somewhere near the middle of the pack, and they are not getting what they need in terms of production from Mike Trout.He certainly did not look right during the month of August, amid rumors that a wrist injury is hampering his performance. They need their offensive stud to get back on track if they have any hope of playing into October. Hector Santiago (8-9, 3.21 ERA) has had a couple of quality starts prior to this one.
