The Dylan Bundy era in Los Angeles did not go well, with Bundy posting an 8-12 record and a 4.89 ERA in two seasons for the Angels. He’ll make his return to Los Angeles to face his old team on Saturday.

Minnesota Twins (-115, 8) vs. Los Angeles Angels

Bundy’s numbers have been similar this season, registering a 5.01 ERA with just 1.9 walks per nine innings. His issues have come on the road, where he’s posted a 6.33 ERA while opponents have hit .301 against him while generating 1.7 home runs per nine innings.

The Angels will counter with Reid Detmers, who has a 3.44 ERA with 3.1 walks and 1.2 home runs per nine innings. He enters having allowed two runs or fewer in five straight starts after having allowed three or more runs in five of the eight that preceded this stretch.

Both starters have below-average bullpens, with the Angels ranked 18th in bullpen ERA entering the series and the Twins 19. Since the Fourth of July, Minnesota ranks 26th in bullpen ERA.

The Angels have scored at least four runs in five of their last nine games while the Twins entered this series having scored at least four runs in 10 of their last 16.

The Twins have scored the most runs of any American League team this season and will be in another high-scoring affair on Saturday.
