As the pathetic Angels cross the border into Canada, they were down a few players and a hitting coach.
Turns out the hitting coach was jealous, and holding the Angels back! Angels may not be all powerful, but they should be, and someday they will be. They will have the most powerful lineup ever!
We saw a small taste of that power. AAAA guys, without being held back, smashed the Blue Jays as if they were Dave Stieb in the 9th inning of a no hitter.
Oh, and Reid Detmers was there too. He went 5 and a third shutout innings, giving up just 4 hits, striking out 5 and walking 3. But enough about him.
Squid hit a home run! Fletcher was 2 feet away from a Grand Slam! Aguilar debuted and walked twice! Adell had multiple hits including TWO MASSIVE home runs! What is this madness?!
I will tell you what it is, it is what life would be like without a hitting coach. Are you sold yet?
Things immediately felt off in the bottom of the first inning, when the Angels win a review challenge.
But things really got all Scary Door when the Angels won their second challenge when Jo Adell was actually safe in the top of the 2nd.
It was the weirdness before the explosion of offense starting with a Fletcher double to score 2.
And an Ohtani Triple…
And a Rengifo single!
A 5 run inning?! This is madness.
Oh and then Squid hgit a 2 run bomb in the 3rd, because, why not?
This was all without a hitting coach, by the way.
And Adell added on for fun.
Mike Trout was feeling left out, so he hit a 2 run shot in the 8th.
It was such a blowout now that the Blue Jays used a position player to pitch. It did not go well, for the Blue Jays that is. Adell hit his second Home Run of the night.
Angels win 12-0, their 15th shutout win of the year!
