Angels flip the script, win 6-0

Another pitcher’s duel early in this game. Either the starting pitching has been really good or these offenses are bad. You know what I’m taking.

Shohei Ohtani put the Angels up 1-0 with his 21st bomb of the year in the third.

The Angels scraped another run in the fifth when Goose Gosselin scored on a wild pitch. 2-0 Angels.

All jokes about bad offense aside, Jose Suarez looked good in this game. He cruised through five scoreless innings with only one hit allowed, an infield single. And on fewer than 60 pitches.

He did have sone help from his defense, like this gem from the Plumber.

Suarez had a rough sixth inning. He left with one out and the bases loaded but still a 2-0 lead.

Jose Quijada stranded all three runners to keep the Angels on top 2-0 heading to the 7th.

The Angels loaded the bases themselves in the 7th with one out. In fact, the only out was due to a Squid sacrifice bunt. Luis Rengifo hit a nice opposite field double to push the score to 4-0 Angels.


Jo Adell got hit with a fastball with the bases loaded to plate another run. He was the second batter hit in the inning, but his was hard. Adell left the game with the Angels up 5-0.

Jose Quijada worked around some trouble to keep the Royals off the board.

Mad Max hit a tack on home run in the 9th to make it 6-0.

Elvis Peguero closed out the 8th and 9th.

Scary thing is it actually makes sense…the Eppler connection…

Ohtani has the “luxury” of seeing what losing is doing to Trout. If Ohtani wants to win a championship – or at least realistically compete for one year-in-and-year-out, he’s leaving after next season. Everyone best start wrapping their heads around the reality.

Props to Quijada and Barria for their stellar job this season.
I know we should tank, but winning makes me feel good.

Winning is a habit. The more you do it the more likely you are to continue doing it…

The angels climbing out of the cellar are now 9-9 without MNT in the lineup this year.

Wait! Will the league even allow The Angels to shut out a team? Will the baseball gods allow it?
