Mike Fiers (1-0; 5.63 ERA; 5Ks; 1.31 WHIP) vs. Dylan Bundy (2-1; 2.08 ERA; 25Ks; 0,60 WHIP) was tonight’s pitching matchup.
You know how there’s usually “that one” inning – tonight it was for the Halos. And now, I present to you, the bottom of the 4th:
Rendon has been looking good and had a multi-hit game including this home run to start the home run rally:
The Angels, as of the 4th inning were tied in the league with most home runs with the Twins and Yankees. Jason Castro must have heard it and wanted the Angels to have the lead the league in Home Runs and took it into his own hands. 104.2 MPH exit velocity.
Goodwin wanted in on this hit-fest 4th inning and hit this beauty.
Angels take over the MLB AL Leaderboard for most Team HRs, and after David Fletcher’s 6th inning blast, and tie the Padres for overall Team HRs (32). See? Baseball can be fun!!

Even with all this run support, Dylan Bundy was SOLID. He improved upon his already Ace-worthy stats. The 7th inning was Bundy’s 12th straight scoreless inning and he has only given up one run over his last 21 innings. This was his second straight game with 10 Ks.
Line for the night and overall ERA:

Mike Mayers and Hansel Robles finished off the A’s and finished off the SHUT OUT.
Halos have already won this series, will they sweep? We’ll see you for tomorrow’s game!
