The San Diego Padres (21-24) head to Anaheim to face the Los Angeles Angels (22-22). They will play in Angel Stadium for the first time since 2009. The Friars are 1-4 in two interleague series so far this season after getting swept by the Houston Astros and splitting a two-game series in Seattle with the Mariners.

The Angels come home after losing a series to the Boston Red Sox on the road. The Angels have had trouble scoring runs this year. They average 3.8 runs per game, which is the third worst in the American League and 26th overall. They are also last in the American League with a .231 average.

The Friars head into this series having lost three consecutive series. They didn’t have to travel far after finishing up a series with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Sunday’s game was encouraging for a Padres team that has been in a tailspin. They scored 11 runs on 20 hits, which tied a season high. This is after scoring just one run in the previous two games of that series.
