Bundy was back on the mound this time vs a real offense. He pitched decently enough, allowing only 2 runs when on the mound. Unfortunately, he pitched only 4 innings, making the bullpen get most of the outs in the game.
Short Outing Bundy
Bundy sent down the Blue Jays 1-2-3 to begin the game. Unfortunately, so did the Blue Jays pitching. Scoreless after 1.
Another inning, another perfect one for Bundy. Angels get a baserunner on an error but that was it. Still scoreless after 2.
Third inning time and Bundy found the bats/ 2 Solo shots to put the Blue Jays up 2-0. Angels respond with an Adell single and a BIG FLY OHTANI-SAN! 2-2 After 3!
4th inning Bundy is good Bundy again as he sets them down in order. Angels say ditto and do the same. 2-2 After 4.
Things immediately went wrong for Bundy in the 5th, giving up a leadoff double. That was enough for Maddon and he was pulled. 4 innings, 2 runs, not bad, not that good either though.
Long Bullpen Game
Selman was up first and he got a lineout. Unfortunately the second batter hit the ball a lot softer and through the infield for a hit and a run came across. He then loaded the bases, but got 2 outs, even getting Vlad Jr to foul out. Maybe he can get out of this… no. Grand Slam Hernadez. 7-2 Jays
With Sam Grand-Slam-Selman putting the Angels in a huge hole, the offense had to come back. It did not in the 5th, despite Adell’s leadoff single, nada. 7-2 Jays after 5.
Slegers came in and did much better, keeping the Blue Jays at bay. Walsh had a leadoff single, Stassi got HBP and was taken out of the game, and the Angels failed to score. Still 7-2 after 6.
At least Slegers kept it at a 5 run deficit. Too bad the offense couldn’t score yet again. Still 7-2 Angels after 7.
Slegers gave up runs in the 8th due to misplays on the left side of the infield by Mayfield and Gosselin. 9-2 Blue Jays. Angels get nothing per usual, 9-2 Jays after 8.
Aaron Slegers pitched the 9th as well, not that he pitched it well, mind you, just that it was his 4th inning. Springer hit a home run while being booed. 10-2 Blue Jays.
Bottom 9, last chance for the Angels, but they gave up innings ago. Angels lose.
One more vs the Blue Jays tomorrow and then 3 vs Houston. Oh joy… Please drink responsibly.
