Shohei Ohtani got the start and gave up a lead off homer to confirmed cheater George Springer. That gave the Blue Jays a lead they’d never surrender.
On the night, Ohtani pitched 6 innings, gave up 5 runs, and struck out 10 Blue Jays.
The score would’ve been worse if not for another stellar defensive play by Brandon Marsh.
An apparent run was taken off the scoreboard in the bottom of the sixth when the Blue Jays successfully challenged a ruling that Matt Duffy had scored prior to the third out being recorded at second base.
Jaime Barria followed a shaky 7th inning by striking out the side in the 8th. He gave up a bomb in the 9th to make the score 6-2.
A little 9th inning rally tightened the score to 6-3.
Between Texas and now Toronto it’s clear the Angels struggle against teams wearing blue. Let’s hope that’s no longer the case when we play Seattle and LA.
The Angels are 4-6 in the last 10 games, the world has not ended. It is a long season of ups and downs. The Angels have a 71% of making the playoffs according to Fangraphs. Who knows what will happen but let’s don’t be self-loathing Angels fans. I like the old community rules of Halos Heaven when Rev ran the place (“complain once and then move on” or something to that effect”). I complain, we all complain, Angels fans complain, baseball fans complain. But when all you do is complain, it gets old. Baseball should be fun.
Last 10 (4-6) games Angels are avg 3.9 vs opp 4.8. Pitching has gotten worse and offensive has been avg and not indicative of the rest of the season. Halos were playing north of .600 ball so yeah it doesn’t look as good now. BP pieces are coming back soon and Ohtani needs to mash. Rendon needs to get going or this will already look like the typical Angels I-told-you-so contract (you know the names). The offense needs to get going early. Get ’em tomorrow. LG!
Oh Trouty. You’re the GOAT but your consistant thrashing of really bad teams year after year followed up by no shows against contenders is not a good luck man. Smdh Hopefully they turn it around tmmrw. Good job by the lesser guys in the lineup tonight tho..🙌🏼
At least “Trouty” didn’t strike out 4 times in one game like yesterday..
Feel like the team will be back under .500 by the all-star break.
Careful… only positive comments are permitted to be said about this hot and cold team.
Can’t say things like inconsistent or overrated (blasphemous) like I just did..
I think it’s more of saying they are inconsistent and overrated over.. and over.. and over.. and over.. and over.. over.. and over.. and over.. and over.. and over.. can become fatiguing.
I’ve said it twice and the Karens on this fvking board have a pregnant cow. Maybe you’re confusing it with your 3 roommates who said it ad nauseaum..
lol, the angels shouldn’t miss ward this bad.
Thankfully Stassi is back. To help the back of the order. I’m hoping Ward is okay and comes back soon!
It still feels like I’m in some kind of dream seeing all these people glitching and clipping over when Ward will come back.
We don’t deserve 2022 Ward at all. Now the gods are threatening to take him away.
YAARRF! Ohviously Ohtani isn’t fully an MLB caliber pitcher yet and he may never be. Trade everyone. Sell the team. Move it to Oklahoma City. I’m over this team, someone just buy me a new one. It’s clear to us all none of these guys care about winning or at least one of them would have slit his wrists in the dugout. Rengifo has never fixed a toilet in his life and I hate that. Trout’s gonna leave. Our farm is full of cabbage. Eventually we’re all gonna die and it’s all someone’s fault.
OKC has the Doyers MiLB.
Don’t step on mah dreams bruh.
Although, most of the cities that may get an MLB team have an MiLB team.
Blue Jay batters struck out 15 TIMES and they STILL won. Pathetic.
The Angels are pathetic. They can never sustain any kind of winning. There is always something in this organization that will destroy the chemistry on this team. I want a new owner. This current one stinks to high heaven.
Not sure if your post is sarcastic or genuine. Regardless the Angels are clearly not as good as their record indicates. The only thing consistent about this team is their inconsistency.
Wait you two guys don’t have some anger impregnated loser radar that can detect each others negative thoughts?
The problem is there are too many games and we will only win some games. I hate that.
Weird game. 15 Blown Jays struck out yet we lost. Turn the page.
“Turn the page”… That’s the worn-out bullcrap announcer Mark Langston says..
Are you new here?
Actually, we should try focusing on this game, discussing it in depth, maybe drawing detailed artist renderings of key moments, for six, maybe seven days. Maybe that’s what’s been missing all these years, NOT turning pages. Will the team win tomorrow if Maddon yells and screams about all the things that went wrong in one of those losses to Baltimore a while back? Couldn’t hurt to try it and find out.
Tomorrow night they should rebroadcast this last game, have some old fart from a past Angels team we can’t get over explain each mistake in great detail. I feel a winning streak coming on.
and Mark might have said that once during the TX series but he rarely says it. And, Mark Langston is not a worn-out bullcrap announcer.
