For Angels supporters, mid-May seems like a lifetime ago: those idyllic times when the team truly led the AL West race and were destined to make the postseason.
Instead, reality crept in, and despite Monday's being their seventh victory in the previous ten games, it's been yet another unsuccessful season.
In the AL East, the Angels sit third, 27 games down from the first-place Astros.

This year, Detroit had the league's worst offensive lineup, ranking last in runs per game (3.36), team batting average (.226), and OPS (.620).

Drew Hutchinson, a pitcher for the Tigers with a 2-7 record and a 4.06 ERA, will take the mound.
He lasted 5.2 innings and allowed six hits and four runs in his most recent start against the Kansas City Royals.
The Angels' pitcher, Patrick Sandoval, who has a 5-9 record and a 3.02 ERA, will take the mound. He pitched seven innings and allowed three hits and two runs in his most recent start against the New York Yankees.
In their last seven games on grass, the Tigers have a 1-6 record. In their previous five games, the Tigers had a 1-4 record. In Sandoval's previous five starts versus the American League Central, the under is 5-0. In Sandoval's previous four starts in Game 3 of a series, the under is 4-0.
I have no faith that one of these acts, particularly Sandoval's, will result in a lockdown.
He only allowed two runs in his previous start against the Yankees, and he'll allow fewer this time.
The under is likely to win when the score is 4-2 or 4-1.

The first five innings' money and run lines have too much movement, but I do think the home team will hit the Detroit starter for at least one home run.
For the first five innings, I'll take the Angels to score over 2.5 runs as a team.
