Rangers 5, Angels 2
At the beginning of this month, AJ Alexy befuddled the Angels with six scoreless innings. Today, the Angels demonstrated that they had not learned much from the experience, putting up just three hits, two runs (courtesy of a Max Stassi home run), and two walks in five innings verses Alexy. This pitcher still 23 innings into his big league career, hit around by the Houston Astros and New York Yankees, continues to shut down the Los Angeles Angels. And sadly, it’s not that surprising.
The Angels would go the rest of the way with just one hit and no runs, meaning that the four-spot the Rangers put up in the second inning off Packy Naughton was enough. Packy once again did not get enough whiffs, not striking out any hitters and allowing walk after walk and hit after hit in that Rangers second inning.
The search for 2022 arms (honestly, and hitters) continues.
