Going for 5 in a row, the Angels faced the Yankees yet again, this time with Mike Mayers on the mound. Yes, Mayers seems to have settled in as the 6th man in the 6 man rotation. Will it stick? Maybe not.
Last time Mayers started he went 5 scoreless. However, it did not go well this time. All because Mike Mayers was infected by the home run bug. Mayers went 4 innings, giving up 7 runs (5 earned) on 8 hits, striking out 4 and walking 2.
The offense needed to step up badly. Stassi did, hitting a 2 run bomb. Ford hit his 2nd home run in as many days. And I guess Ohtani and Ward did something… Everyone else? Well not so much.
Things got off to a bad start with Mayers giving up a solo shot.
He gave up another one in the second.
Stassi tied it up in the second with a 2 run bomb of his own.
It looked like Mayers was going to be able to escape a jam. However, a bad throw by Rengifo gave the Yankees the lead again.
Tallion, the Yankees SP, had to leave after getting injured.
Things were in the Angels favor… But then Mayers pitched to Judge like an idiot, allowing a 3 run home run and putting the game out of reach.
Mike Ford didn’t give up, however. He hit a solo shot in the 5th to make it 7-3.
The only thing to note was that Touki Toussaint took over in the 5th, and pitched 4 shutout innings. Not bad. Bullpen gets an A today.
Well, Ohtani did score the 4th run in the 9th. Yay~
Oh and Matty V doesn’t know that the Disneyland Castle is Sleeping Beauty’s (Aurora’s) and NOT Cinderella’s.
Angels lose, snap their winning streak, makes everyone miserable, and it sucks.
Hong Kong actually got major jealous and did an absolutely tragic redesign of their castle. Shame, as they have the best background of any park.
One of these days I’ll admit that I suck on the air. Then CTPG FANatics can go back to believing we’re a 90 game win team and that Patrick Sandoval is the 2023 AL Cy Young winner again!!

Why are you posting the image from an Amazon Essentials moisture wicking polo ad?
Rengifo’s throw wasn’t spot on (like the bullet from the 3B grass the other day), but I think a better 1B (Walsh?) picks that. I mean it hit the top of Ford’s glove as he swung to pick it.
That was a nice one hop throw and not a short hop . That play has to be made by Ford. You can’t give good teams extra outs. Ford was shaky these first 2 games defensively and of course the ball or throw always finds you. There’s gotta be a better option somewhere
He took a long hop and worked towards it – turning it into a long in-between. I don’t ever recall seeing first base played this bad at the major league level.
I have no faith in dWAR that doesn’t calculate Mike Ford losing a run per game. He wasn’t even close to making that play. Major leaguers need to make that play. In just a few games he’s looked absolutely terrible at first. Hide the donuts in the clubhouse please.
The entire play wouldn’t have happened if Mayers hadn’t walked 2 batters
Maybe, but I don’t think Rengifo deserves the error, or being called out on this play.
I’m not sure who gets the blame, PTP or Nevin.
Mayers should not have been re-signed so that’s Perry’s fault but Nevin left him in even though Mayers had already given up 4 and had just given up 2 more hits, bringing up Judge.
Nevin might have been the only person who didn’t know what was coming. Now the dream of 89 wins is over.
It is ok, I think 88 wins gets us into the playoffs.
Oh noh! So anger! Why!?! ARTE!?! If only we DiPoto A GoGo!
Wake me up before you A GoGo!
I can’t even get excited for College football right now, I am that out of it
Small Blue Pill should help.
I just absolutely don’t care about the BIG 10 and UCLA going to it has drained all my excitement in college football. As is them playing an FCS team this year
College football? Holy smokes – snoozefest.
Oh no we suck again!
When did we stop?
I say until you don’t anymore!!!
😆 😆 😫 💪 💪
Those last 4 games were fun
Kind of like the last 4 questions on the final exam
*Is it usually dark outside at 2am?
*Is a elephant a mammal and a herbivore?
*Is the Pacific Ocean still there right now?
*Is the moon made of cheese?
