Angels 1, Rangers 6
José Quintana entered this game having blown up his first two of three starts in Halo red, with an ERA of 9. That number grew against the Rangers with another lackluster performance, and the Angels were unable to muster much offense against opposing starter Mike Foltynewicz in Tuesday’s loss.
Quintana surrendered five earned runs across 3 1/3 innings, primarily dinger-based damage from newly anointed Angels killer Nick Solak and old foe Joey Gallo.
It wasn’t a good strike zone tonight, but it’s hard to complain when the Halos couldn’t get much going on either side of the ball. Mike Trout ripped a double and Justin Upton extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a knock up the middle, but there wasn’t much to get excited about. Ho-hum.
