C.J. Wilson and Mat Latos, Game 2 Pitchers

Another pitchers’ duel today at Great American Ballpark tonight, if Mat Latos gets out of his April funk and will be facing C.J. Wilson, part of an offseason blockbuster signing with Albert Pujols, his contract is worth 6 years for 75 million.

Prediction: 5 1/3 IP, 2 hits, 2 doubles, 2 home runs, 5 runs, 5 walks and 4 strikeouts. If all runs are earned, end up with a 8.44 ERA, start at the same place.

C.J. Wilson

Only faced one batter in Monday’s game, Shin-Soo Choo

Prediction: 6 2/3 IP, 4 hits, 2 homeruns, 4 runs, 8 strikeouts, 2 hits by pitches. If runs are earned, Wilson should start the season with a 5.40 ERA.

The game will be more offense but it will depend on the bullpens, Angels own the 0.00 ERA right now but the Reds have a 3.00 ERA in this series. No contested pick tonight, let the bats determine it.
