The Angels faced the Mariners for the first time since the brawl. Mariners are a wild card team, meanwhile, the Angels are trying to not lose 100 games. Or maybe they are trying to lose, it was hard to tell.
Patrick Sandoval did his job, going 5 and a third shutout innings, giving up 3 hits and 4 walks while striking out 5.
The offense did almost nothing, almost. Scoring 3 runs, with 2 in the 8th to give a cushion for a save. A save that was blown by Jesse Chavez. Because Angels.
The Angels struck in the first with a run scored by Rengifo thanks to Jo Adell.
There was almost another in the 2nd, but Sierra was thrown out.
Angels continue to male blunders by getting a caught stealing in the 3rd.
At least the Angels scored 2 more in the 8th thanks to Stassi.
Those were needed as Jesse Chavez had a rough 9th. How rough? Chavez blew it. He f-in blew it. Jesse Chavez gave up 3 runs in the 9th.
Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic.
At least only 3 runs meant extra innings instead of a loss, which just meant a loss with extra steps.
The Angels scored a run in the 10th, thanks to a sac fly by Ward.
Now it was up to Jimmy Herget to save the game.
AND HE DID IT! Somehow, the Angels won!
