The Angels face the Mariners for 2, with Jaime Barria getting the start for game 1. It was a pitching duel in Seattle as both these teams failed to figure out what offense means.
Jaime Barria did decent, rewarding the fans who wanted him to start. He went 4 and 2/3, giving up 2 runs on 3 hits, striking out 3 and walking 4. Certainly an option to start the rest of the season. Mike Mayers then took over, pitching 3 and a third scoreless innings to keep the Angels in it!
However, offensively, the Angels again were offensively offensive, again. Despite the plethora of hits, they scored once in the second and then not again. You can’t win like that.
The Angels scored first, thanks to Mickey!
Unfortunately, Barria made a mistake pitch to France, allowing a 2 run jack in the 3rd.
That was all the scoring of the day, mostly due to the incompetency of the Angels. Like getting a strike them out, throw them out inning ending double play because Adell didn’t slide.
Angels lose, as expected. Game 2 starts in a few hours.
