Ohtani Statis-Pro Cards Debut vs Milwaukee ace Burnes

A major motivation for including some of the relegated AL teams to complete NL Statis-Pro schedules was to get to use Shohei Ohtani's batting and pitching card. For each relegated AL team, we are having them play two NL opponents in two games each to go through their 4-man pitching rotation.

Here are the Los Angeles Angels four games:

Milwaukee Brewers at LA Angels - Angel Stadium is a great home run park at 11-54 (55-88 deep fly out) and both teams will start their aces. The Brewers Corbin Burns faces Shohei Ohtani in a match-up of two of the only PB 2-9 starting pitchers in the game.

LA Angels at Milwaukee - American Family Field is exactly average 11-35 home run. The No. 4 pitcher in each rotation will pitch with former White Sox Lucas Giolito for the Angels against Eric Lauer.

LA Angels at Arizona Diamondbacks - Chase Field 11-43 good hitters park. The Angels No. 2 pitcher Tyler Anderson vs. DBacks No. 2 pitcher Andrew Chafin - a lefty and thus Brandon Drury will start at third base for the Angels.

Arizona at LA Angels - No. 3 pitcher Patrick Sandoval at Tommy Henry.

Playing the Angels also means getting to use Mike Trout's batting card to add a line-up that suffered injuries but added three Colorado Rockies sluggers.

In addition to adding Giolito the Angels also attained their new closer in our game, Reynaldo Lopez. Still only a PB 2-7 for a weak bull pen. However, because the Angels pitchers need to pitch in such a pitchers park, each of them turn the highest home run number on the opposing batters card into an out.

Game 2 - the Brewers jumped all over the Angels with 6 runs in the 1st, but needed Devin Williams in the 9th for a 6-5 win and split. They stay in 3rd place behind the Dodgers and Braves in our Statis-Pro league.
