Angels 4, Padres 11
Expectations were probably low for Angels fans going in to this one – but Julio Teherán was dealing on the way to his best start of the season against one of the more potent offenses in MLB. Teherán only made it through 5 innings, but he also only allowed 4 hits and 2 runs. His sole blemish was a 2 run bomb by Jurickson Profar in the 4th.
Mike Trout opened up scoring for this one with his own 2 run shot to center field. That home run was #298 for Trout, leaving him 1 short of Tim Salmon’s club record.
Julio Teherán got by with a little help from his friends. In this case – Jo Adell who made this fantastic 4 start catch to rob Fernando Tatis Jr. of extra bases in the 5th.
The Angels and Padres were tied going in to the 8th inning with Ty Buttrey on the mound (Boo-Tray if you listen to Padres announcers). Jason Castro hit a 2-run double off BooTray. He sure didn’t wait long to burn his old team. The Padres were up 5-3 and it was all they needed to put this game away. Enter former stud Hansel Robles came in and walk the next two batters – loading the bases up for Tatis – whom he walked. 6-3 Padres. Good night Robles.
Justin Upton failed to catch out #3 (90% catch probability), leading to an 8 run inning.
This is what happens when a good team faces a bad bullpen.
