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.
