Dylan Bundy went back on the mound vs SF on Memorial Day. It did not go well for him. While he started out decent enough, 3 home runs and 4 runs total made it another not good outing for him. The offense scoring only 1 run was the real issue though. Cueto had their number again and it showed.
Upton started the game with a leadoff single. Wong grounded into a fielder’s choice, however. Then he got picked off for good measure. Rendon flied out to end the half. Bundy had himself a 1-2-3 inning.
The second started with a double by Walsh. Ward got HBP, then Rojas bunted into a fielder’s choice. Bemboom came up with runners on the corners and grounded out, but the fielder couldn’t get the throw off and a run scored! Also, Bundy got a hit! 1-0 Angels heading into the bottom of the 2nd. Old man Longoria got a 1 out hit vs Bundy. Then Dylan 6ave up a walk. Thankfully, a GIDP got him out of the inning.
Wong got a 1 out single in the 3rd, but was stranded there. SF returned the favor by stranding a runner on second in the bottom half.
The 4th started with another Ward HBP, the CF raising his OBP by the way of bodily harm. It was for naught, as the team stranded him at first. Bundy though was not having a good time. After a 1 out walk, he allowed a 2 run jack to old man Longoria. 2-1 SF.
Wong hit a 2 out triple right into the alley in the 5th. In any other stadium it would be a tied game. Instead, he did not score as Rendon flied out. They needed that run as Bundy allowed another home run. 3-1 Giants.
The Angels went down in order in the 6th, Giants didn’t though, instead hitting their 3rd home run of the day. 4-1 Giants. that was the end for Bundy. 5 and 2/3 innings, 4 runs allowed. Claudio came in next and ended the inning.
Runs were at a premium for the Angels as the 7th ended up the same as the last few. The teams honored those who died defending this country. Strickland came in for the 7th, but did not last long. A walk, a ground rule double, and a strikeout were the 3 he saw before being yanked. That did not do any good as new Q came in and gave up more runs. 6-1 Giants.
Running out of time, the Angels faced a new pitcher. An old friend, Nitro. he pitched well, shutting down the Angels. New Q went out for another inning. He had trouble, loading the bases even, but didn’t allow them to score even more.
9th inning time, and Ohtani came up with 2 outs down 5. It was his only AB in the game, a game he needed more than 1 of. He walked on 5 pitches to extend the game.
The Angels are now 24-30 on the year. Another one vs SF tomorrow. Maybe they can score tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your day, and remember those you have lost.
