Angels 1 Yankees 6
For our shared sanity, I’ll keep this one short and sweet.
The Angels needed a pivotal victory to snap a long losing streak. They didn’t get it. Shohei Ohtani, usually sharp on the mound, was not, surrendering three home runs with few swinging strikes in just three innings. Yankees starter Nestor Cortes, on the other hand, was dealing (7 strikeouts through seven innings).
Aaron Judge hit a home run.
Mike Trout struck out three times.
As a baserunner, Ohtani got picked off at first base.
A routine double play ball hit the second base umpire and instead was ruled a hit, turning a GIDP into runners at second and third base.
It was not a great game.
