Angels Crush M’s Early & Often

Final Score in Seattle: Angels 10, Mariners 5 …and it wasn’t really even that close.

Griffin Canning looked good but didn’t make it out of the sixth inning but who cares?!?!?!!!! The Halo bats destroyed Jerry Dipoto’s arms. Jared Walsh hit two HRs in going 4 for 4, Anthony Rendon had his first big game since returning from the DL (first big game of the season, really) and lots of mashing elsewhere.

Celebrate good times, come on!

And, since there is no news crash today…

Nine years ago today, Jered Weaver no-hit the Twins.

I was there. Kept upgrading my seats to behind the dugout. 2 friends couldn’t make the game and regret it to this day.

Me too. Still the only No Hitter I have witnessed in person.

If game had been closer the BP once again would have given it away. Good thing our top 6 knows how to hit and get us on the boards. Remember Jim Mora’s rant about Playoffs! Playoff’s? Well I am crazy sometimes because I can see a big winning streak coming and we will owe a gratitude to same for making the play offs. When running on 8 cylinders this line up is scary.

Does anyone still have any Walsh doubts left? What a hidden gem. And Trouty having maybe the best start of his career. Ohtani doing just fine and we have I think yet to see Fletch take off.

Both JUp and Albert have been a bit of a surprise and Antony got involved also. We watched the game at a neighbors and we had fun but still felt anxious in the last 2 innings.

Today’s game should be another good game. GO ANGELS !!!!

The big story for me in yesterday’s game is Trout hitting home run number 309 to tie Edgar Martinez for the ninth most homers ever hit by an AL West player. And the cherry on the top is that he did it in Seattle.

Yes, if not for Billy Martin, Brett would have had 318!

Brett got credit for the HR.

KC appealed. Lee MacPhail overturned the ruling, and Brett was awarded the HR. Later in the season the game was resumed from immediately after Brett’s home run.

Thanks for the correction. I was relying on my age-worn memory of the infamous Pine Tar Incident.

One of my all time favorites. Brett was absolutely out of his mind.

Just posted because I thought it was funny. I’m sure George Brett was robbed of a few HRs from OFs making great plays. I liked him and the royals uniforms back in the day.

All the unifoms were better back then. The exception is maybe the Angels unis as I like the current red look better than the navy, white and red from that time. Though those were not bad.

I love every uniform but our current ones, even the Disney one (although I really didn’t like it at the time).
I can remember the 80s and 90s variations being kind of loser ones but having won a WS (validity as a franchise imo) and enough time passing the retro angels look gets me (to buy merch) every time.

Healthy, this offense is elite.

Canning pitched great with less pressure. He should take that mindset to the mound.

A fun night for sure!

Can’t wait to see a Walsh jersey arriving to MLB shop Tokyo!
Rendon starting to heat up and we can win 8-7 everyday now with this lineup!

So if Walsh heats up, and Trout maintains where he is, we could have two .400 hitters on the team at the same time. Unlikely, but a man has to have a dream, right?

We won, and won big, so why did it feel like a nailbiter?
