Michael Lorenzen turned in the most impressive implosion of 2022 on Saturday.
A nightmarish first in which 5 runs were quickly allowed off hard contact and wildness was followed by a heck of a lot of shutout ball as the starter somehow made it through 5.2. While a 10th consecutive loss seemed (and was) inevitable, seeing the starter save us from having to use Herget out the gate was rather nice.
Jared Walsh would knock in two runs over the course of the game, but it would be too little too late. The Angels have now dropped enough games in a row to make the Mariners jealous and are back at .500, solidifying one of the team’s greatest collapses in decades.
