Taylor Jordan makes his fourth start of the season, and faces an Angels lineup that has scored 101 runs, the third-highest total in the majors. Jordan (0-2, 5.94 ERA) has received a bit of bad luck, as his FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching ERA) is actually 3.64. He followed his first start of the season, in which he allowed only one run over 6 1/3 innings against Atlanta, with two sub-par starts. He has allowed 10 earned runs over the past two starts combined. The Angels have the fifth highest groundball rate in the majors at 49.5 percent; behind the Royals, Rockies, Astros and Diamondbacks. The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game below.
