White Sox 9, Angels 3
In the opening month of the season, Shohei Ohtani took Dylan Cease deep on national television in what was perhaps the greatest bat-to-ball sound of the Halos season. That was exciting.
Tonight, he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts, and the Angels were blown out by those same playoff-bound Chicago White Sox. They didn’t even have their best stuff on the mound, as Lucas Giolito was returning from injury, but the Angels couldn’t muster much offense, leaving nine runners on base.
Packy Naughton got the start, but he couldn’t duplicate his prior results this season and was pulled in the third inning, having allowed six hits and four runs. The bullpen combo of Andrew Wantz and Oliver Ortega allowed more runs, but Kyle Tyler pitched three scoreless to continue his perfect season.
Jared Walsh and Phil Gosselin homered in the loss.
