It was the worst of times, it was the worster of times. As the Angels struggle even more, they face the Dodgers again in LA.
Detmers vs Anderson, a guy who threw a no hitter vs a pitcher who has an actually good season this year. Not that this game was wholly Detmers’ fault. Sure, he went only 3 and 2/3 innings, giving up 4 runs on two home runs and 4 hits while striking out 6 and walking 3. However, he could have gotten a quality start and it wouldn’t have changed jack.
The offense was horrific. Like, worse than yesterday, somehow. It took until 1 out in the 9th for a single hit, and that was an Ohtani triple. The Angels were this close to being no hit.
Detmers got rocked in the first, allowing a 3 run home run.
Trout robbed a home run in the first to keep the deficit at only 3 and not 6.
Detmers allowed a solo shot in the 3rd, yeesh.
The Angels did squat, actually getting no hit through 8, and were 2 outs away from utter embarrassment when Ohtani hit a triple.
Duffy hit a single to get the first Angels run of the series.
But that was it, as the Angels failed to do anything else, and lose yet again. They face the Mariners next for the first time this season.
