Baseball’s favorite villains rolled through town so the fans who couldn’t boo them early in the year got a shot tonight. There wasn’t much to cheer early, but there was plenty to boo.
Patrick Sandoval started the game with a slightly better ERA than Asterisks starter Zack Greinke. Sandoval’s ERA took a hit when he gave up a grand slam to Kyle Tucker in the 4th inning. Greinke was brilliant, going 7 innings of shutout ball, giving up only 2 hits and striking out 7.
Those were the only runs of the game until Shohei Ohtani beat the shift and drive in Marsh to cut the deficit to 4-1. That run was the only one the Angels would push across the plate as David Fletcher grounded out to end the inning with runners on second and third.
I wish I had more. Just a depressing game.
