It’s downright comical.
The Angels will have the bullpen give up 7 runs when they have a legitimate shot at a rout one night, then go out the next and lose a 1-0 pitching duel. It’s actually insane.
Noah Syndergaard returned to April form on Monday evening against the Red Sox, throwing 6 innings and allowing only 5 hits, 1 walk, and 1 run. It was the best he’d looked since the beginning of May, and it was absolutely overshadowed by the ace Michael Wacha, who threw a complete game shutout.
Mike Trout finally broke his hitless streak, the bullpen delivered 3 scoreless innings, and who even cares? The losing streak is now at 12 games.
We don’t need positive takeaways.
We need a damn win.
