Syndergaard gives up 2 2-run HRs, Angels fall 6-2 2 Royals as 2022 playoff hopes slump, 2

Royals 6 Angels 2

Another start, more bats finding the ball against Noah Syndergaard. Syndergaard surrendered two two-run homers against the lowly Royals and the Angels couldn’t muster a lick of offense against 7+ ERA Kris Bubic. (Yes, I’m aware that Taylor Ward schmacked one to left field.) The bottom of the order (6th through 9th) went 2 for 15.

It was not a great night. The Angels needed to take advantage of this easier schedule for a better chance at the wild card berth. That did not happen.

Also, Salvador Perez had the dagger in the 8th, if 2014 didn’t physically hurt you enough. It really was not a great night. Sometimes, this team really tests you.

I’m now 3-1 🙁

I don’t care about the pitch count, Nevin should not have sent Thor out in the 8th.

So I guess if Trout doesn’t carry this team on his back they’re doomed

A) it’s not the end of the season because we lost tonight. Let’s take the next two, keep moving back to .500.

B) install a black background like they have in Seattle.

Another 10 strikeouts tonight. This team strikes out 10-15 times nearly every game. Why the F hasn’t the hitting coach been canned yet…

Exactly 9.47 times per game. #1 in MLB in that category. Hey, we gotta lead in something!

The Seattle series really took A LOT out of the Angels plus RenDone is out so the Angels have their excuses already baked in the cake which Trent Rush will surely point out on his post-game comedy show…

I just heard from Trent Rush. He says he’s sorry. It was just 45 crazy minutes in one crazy night of drinking in Laughlin, Nevada. He never meant to hurt you and he hopes someday you can move on and be happy.

Just gotta tip your cap and turn the page when you can only put a 2 spot up against a guy who’s ERA was closer to 10 than it was to 5.
