Angels 2 Astros 1
Last weekend, the Angels scored 22 runs. This weekend, however, is not off to a great start. Through the 6th inning, the Angels were limited to a depressing 2 hits – both doubles – both by David Fletcher in his first two at bats. In total, the Angels mustered 3 hits and 2 runs and it was enough!
As an aside, who else is really digging these city connect unis? I was semi indifferent when they first came out, but I love these unis and they rank up there with the early 80s v-necks for me. Back to the game.
Ohtani is pure filth. Exhibit A:
Ohtani escaped a jam based loaded jam in the 6th (no thanks to Max Stassi whose catcher interference juiced the bases)
Not exactly a huge offensive surge, but things got pretty exciting for the Angels in the 7th when Rengifo and Ward advanced to 3rd and 2nd on a sac fly and Ryan Aguilar followed that up with his first career RBI – a sac fly to right field to knot the game up at 1.
The offense was pretty lethargic tonight but they got it done. Matt Duffy drove in the game winning RBI in the 12th. Angels are cool and the Astros drool!
