David Fletcher had three doubles and five RBIs, Alex Cobb took over the Number Two spot in the pitching rotation with a great performance and guys like Taylor Ward and Jack Mayfield stepped up with homers on a night where Shohei Ohtani had the Platinum Sombrero with four strikeouts on an 0 for 5 performance.
Worse than that we had to burn a Raisel appearance when Alex Claudio gave up a three-run homerun in the top of the ninth inning in a 9-1 ballgame, but why fixate on the negatives when so much good peppered the Los Angeles Big Salami of Anaheim tonight?!?!
Light it up and get some shut eye for the afternoon delight mañana…
Final Score: Angels 9, Mariners 4 (but it wasn’t even really that close) at the Stadium in Anaheim where the Halo is safely lit.
