Walsh Cycle Powers Angels Win 11-6

The two best players on the planet played like the two best players on the planet. But the headlines will all go to Jared Walsh who hit for the cycle.

Walsh becomes the first Angel to hit for the cycle since Ohtani did it in 2019. He’s the first to do it at home since Trout in 2013

There were plenty of highlights galore. Two bombs from Trout, one for Ohtani, and a big Angels win.

I was so wrong about the Lorenzen signing.

Got to give this one to Perry.

He saw something there in Lorenzen as a starter that was pure gold.

So since the city connect uniforms say Los Angeles does that mean they can wear them when they play the Doyers

AW had one bad outing in SL but hes not striking out anyone. ( 2 K’s and 4 BB’s in that 4-1/3) But with the Herget experiment starting to fail, Ortega’s recent meltdowns and Tepera’s wildness he’s got to be the next in line to be brought up.

Nice game last night-I was in section 343. Mets fan next to me took his jersey off about the 5th inning.

Nice Angels dominant win.

I love the CC helmets too. I actually thought about buying a replica helmet but then that would not be a good look for a 60 year old without grand kids.

I cant wait for Trout’s Slurpee cup with that uniform on it.

Yeah, anytime I see an adult fan wearing a batting helmet I think he’s one of those people with a rare disorder with an extremely fragile scull where if his head got bumped he’d go into seizures and maybe die !

Ha ha. Yes! Speaking of Olerud it makes me think of my favorite Rickey Henderson story.

This must have been the mid 90’s when it occured. Henderson had gotten on base via a walk or single and was standing on the bag chatting with the First Baseman of the other team, who happened to be John Olerud.

Rickey, said to him : “Hey, why do you wear a batting helmet in the field? …… You know, I used to play with a guy who wore a batting helmet in the field.”

Olerud looked at him with surprise and said: “Rickey, that was ME! We were teammates in Toronto.” 🤣 😂 😂

I loved those jerseys. In fact, I loved most of the MLB jerseys of the period circa 1979, 1980.

My first cycle seen in person! And has there ever been two cycles in one game? Shohei was a triple away from that.

Also, We’re 3-0 in games I’ve attended!

This ranks up there, in my attending games, with Downing’s hello and goodbye home runs to clinch the title and seeing Ohtani’s first HR.

Contagious hitting is such a fabulous thing to watch. I hope we see it more often. This was not happening recently and hence the losing streak.

Lost among the justified praise of Walshie and Trout is the fact that our real Shohei is back;

Over the last three games here is what he did : 6-12, 2B, 2HR, 5RBI, .538 OBP, 1.083

IKR? The f**up on the very first play of the game, and the botched double play later. Lorenzen was a stud to get out of THAT mess.

Of course Walsh helped on that, by snagging that liner (and nearly getting the DP himself).

Part of how Lorenzen got out of it? He went to Jared!

Still without Ward, but how this lineup on the card already gives me confidence.
Congrats to Walsh!
And TROUTANI are good.

I still get the names Walsh, Ward, and Wade mixed up whenever I first read them. Eventually I figure it out and realize it’s Wade that I never want to see on the field again.

What a great game! Just got home from it. My sister and hubby came down from up north and rented a diamond suite for a small family reunion and we couldn’t have picked a better game. 2 homers from Trout, 1 from Ohtani, some great plays, great pitching from Lorenzen and, of course, Walsh’s cycle.

Plus I got to munch on sliders, pizza and salad while looking over at the sea of blue in the far left corner and knowing they had little to cheer about. Coming in I heard a lot of smug “Let’s go Mets!” chants, but leaving they sure were quiet. Heh heh! (Granted they are in first place. But tonight was our night)
