The Angels are losing a ton lately, again. Being terrible will do that. It is especially true at the plate, meaning that any starting pitcher could have a great time vs this offense. Which means that when an ace faces the Angels, doom is likely.
Noah tried his best to keep up though. 5 innings of 2 run ball is decent enough, right? Only 5 hits allowed too, and hey, he had 8 strikeouts and no walks! Thor was decent again! And hey, 4 innings of shutout baseball by the bullpen! Amazing!
But yes, it didn’t matter as the Angels had 2 hits through 8 innings. Seriously, it was pathetic. The only good thing worth showing was that Trout made a good catch.
And like, yeah, that was certainly a good catch. Something that is in the highlights since there was nothing else to show for the Angels.
Oh and Stefanic had a pinch hit hit in the 9th, the 3rd hit of the game. In fact, Trout walked too, putting 2 on for Shohei Ohtani. Despite sucking all game the Angels had a chance to take the lead.
HE walked. Bases loaded, one out in the 9th, down two. The Miami bullpen was blowing the excellent 8 inning shutout start by their starter, was this hope?!
Taylor Ward hit a sac fly. NOT SHUT OUT!
And Walsh flew out to end the game. Ugh.
The Angels lose, again, stuck in 4th place in the AL West. All on Ohtani’s birthday. Pain Dayo…
