Good morning Angels fans, did you sleep last night? Yeah, me neither, have some links to sober up!
Reid Detmers no hit the Tampa Bay Rays! On 2 strikeouts! Yes, that is the fewest strikeouts in a no hitter in years! Also the youngest since 2006. And also one of only 2 no hitters while only walking 1 and scoring at least 12 runs. The last time? Angels in 2019.
It wasn’t the only cool thing about the game, for it was the Angels debut of CHAD Wallach! Like any CHAD, he hit a home run and MASHED the ball HARD all game! He’s the starting catcher now that Stassi is out too.
Oh yeah and Anthony Rendon hit a home run off a position player, while batting lefty! The first time he ever hit left handed in the majors! He is not left handed!
There was a lot of highlights last night I didn’t even get to, so, just watch a condensed game.
Oh yeah, before the game even started, Ohtani received his numerous awards from last year. Arte Moreno was booed.
Oh yeah, other teams played. Robbie Grossman made history by not making an error. 401 games is like, over 2 and a half seasons.
Verlander ALMOST threw a no hitter as well, but he is bush league, so he didn’t. Erik Aybar sends his regards.
Baltimore finally visited St. Louis for the first time in 19 years. What the hell, schedule makers?!
MLB has settled a lawsuit with the MiLB players about minimum wage violations. I’m keeping my eyes on you, Manfred.
Trade deadline this year is on August 2nd at 3pm Pacific. Angels may be buyers this time!
Are home runs being suppressed? Fangraphs says yes.
