Here is a postmortem examination of Sunday’s game. And another one. Shadows or no shadows, the Angels simply didn’t score enough runs. Not to worry, though, because the Dodgers are also struggling. Here comes the clash of former titans tonight.
Joe Maddon got a mohawk just before he was fired. At least it’s a little less permanent than a tattoo.

Yasmani Grandal is now on the ten day IL due to lower back spasms. There seems to be a lot of that going around. Stephen Strasburg is back on the injured list as well.
