Just four more games left in the season!
Angels Lineup: Fletcher 6, Walsh 3, Trout 8, Rendon 5, Ohtani 10, Upton 7, Ward 9, Bemboom 2, Rengifo 4. Barria 1.
Padres Lineup: Grisham 8, Cronenworth 6, Machado 10, Hosmer 3, Pham 7, Myers 9, Garcia 5, Castro 2, Profar 4. Clevinger 1.
And Sandy for the win
I don’t know who Nick Margevicius is. Sounds like a failed punk rocker. But I hope he pitches the game of his life today.
Well, I know we got a little lucky with Clevinger leaving early. Nonetheless it was a nice two game sweep of a good Padres team.
17-9 since the low point of the season. 17 and freakin’ 9.
Hey, whatever it takes. I would imagine we’ll only see a few innings of the Dodgers’ starters. And while their bullpen is good, too, they’ll be using the bottom half of it a decent amount to keep arms fresh.
Trouty Baby and good job Sandy. Fletch 3 more hits.
There you go, Trout! That makes up for the rotten day at the plate.
Light that Baby Up as the Big A lights up the Western Skies tonight.
There’s two. Come on, Pena. Finish it.
One more please.
Can we get a couple of outs please?
Over the middle of the plate, jeez.
I have to say, I don’t feel great about Pena here.
He and Buttrey have been the biggest BS culprits. He has three and Buttrey has four.
This is no hill for a climber and we are climbing up the standings.
Why not do this before the inning? Now you have to bring in a reliever with someone on. Is there a reason he wanted Mayers specifically for Hosmer?
I think if he had gotten Hosmer he would have kept him in.
I do, too. But I guess my point is that if you were going to feel comfortable bringing in Pena with a runner on and you were going to have a quick trigger with Mayers, why not just give Pena the clean inning?
this or that, pick one
Riding Mayers until his arm falls all the way off it seems
Just 3 outs
And Mayers at 20 pitches now so….does he go out in the 9th? Or will we see Buttrey? 3 run lead…yikes
