Angels lineup: Full batting order vs. Rays on Tuesday, May 10

We break down the Angels lineup for Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Los Angeles Angels Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Angels went deep four times in Monday’s 11-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays and now lead the Majors with 40 home runs. Two of those shots belonged to Shohei Ohtani, who clobbered his first grand slam ever in professional baseball.

The Angels, who are currently in first place in the AL West at 20-11, may be without Taylor Ward tonight. The outfielder who leads all qualified hitters in on-base (.490) and slugging percentage (.675) sat out Monday’s game with right hamstring tightness. He is considered day-to-day.

Rays starting pitcher Corey Kluber has had pretty good success against Ohtani and Mike Trout during his illustrious career, limiting those two stars to just three hits in 23 at-bats. However, two of those hits did leave the park.

Angels lineup: Tuesday, May 10

  1. Brandon Marsh LF
  2. Mike Trout CF
  3. Shohei Ohtani DH
  4. Anthony Rendon 3B
  5. Jared Walsh 1B
  6. Jack Mayfield RF
  7. Chad Wallach C
  8. Luis Rengifo 2B
  9. Andrew Velazquez SS

The Angels don’t have a true leadoff hitter, but their two, three and four hitters make up for that. Even Jared Walsh has added some lineup protection. This lineup has struggled against Corey Kluber in the past, but the season has started off well for Los Angeles. They head into this game in first place in the AL West and Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani are two of the best hitters in the league.
