Trout homers in Angels loss to Padres

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.

I was watching and as it went into the 7th I thought “these crazy bastards just may pull off the upset in this game”, then came the 8th inning and I said to my son ” there is The Angels that I know”. Bullpen buttercup, only I wish I could be there live.

At this point our best hope other than the high draft pick is the team being so soul crushing that Albert retires.

Who am I kidding, Arte would just pocket the savings.

Great play by Adell. Equally not great play by Upton, who clearly mailed that in.

Yes that was a great play by Adell, a clearly lazy play by Upton (I said in the game thread Noe needed props for not walking off the field at that point). Also a play by Adell that a 10 year old would get yelled at on the sac fly. How do you catch a flyball completely flat footed when you have a runner on third? I bet it was the roof that caused it….. smh

At what point is Marsh brought up to finish the season and have Ohtani and Upton battle for DH time.
Better yet, scrap Ohtani as a pitcher and put him in the OF or 1B. Don’t see his arm holding up unless he’s only throwing 1 inning, OF/1B and closer anyone?

Every year. He’s been a disaster ever since he put up decent numbers 3 years ago.

Arte so cheap he doesn’t get pineapple on his pizza even though he loves it because each additional topping is $2.49

NoBatReto has struck out 8 times in 11 abs. He is so far gone. He has no future. It’s easy to see. This organization needs a complete retool from top to bottom.

I don’t know, he might be great standing on 1B as a pinch-runner….
