It has been a no good very bad week for Jo Adell. Not only has he only gotten one hit, but he had tightness in his leg, got hit on his hand for a strike, and had a ball go off his glove and over the wall for a home run.
Not that he was the only one struggling. Andrew Heaney was doing fine until the 4th inning when it unraveled and the 3rd out eluded him. Sorry, I praised him earlier, it is all my fault.
At least Tommy La Stella hit a home run. He did well today. As did Ohtani, with 2 hits and a walk! Maybe he has fixed his swing. And 7 Angels had walks! Good eyes! But also 13 strikeouts, 4 by Jo Adell. Not good.
But scoring so few runs vs one of the worst teams and getting swept is not how to make the playoffs. Even with 16 teams making it this season, the Angels are falling far behind. In fact the team is closer to the number 1 pick than 8th place in the AL.
Up next is Oakland at home, the only good team in the AL West this year. Let the Tanking continue!
