Saturday, Patrick Sandoval and the Los Angeles Angels faced off against Kolby Allard and the Texas Rangers at the newly minted Globe Life Park. “How did it go?” you may ask. Patrick Sandoval threw the ball well through 5+ innings but he just didn’t have run support and was pulled in the sixth inning down 2-0. Joey Gallo hit a 2 out 2 run homerun to the opposite field to give Texas a 2-0 lead in the sixth inning.
The game started well enough. David Fletcher started the game with a lead off double, but then the next three batters made out in short order.
As the game wore on, the Angels began to commit errors, including an error in the bottom of the second inning by David Fletcher. The Angels chased Allard in the fifth inning when Edinson Volquez came in and shut them down.
In the 6th inning, Joey Gallo hit the two out, two-run home run that would be all the Rangers needed to win this game. The Angels lose 2-0.
