As the WBC starts, the Angels who aren’t on those teams still have to prove themselves, and so do the Rockies I suppose. While some did impress, others did not, the result was a close WIN!
Silseth messed up first, allowing a solo home run in the first inning.
It was the only run allowed in his 4 innings of work, however, so it wasn’t too bad.
Part of that was with help by his defense, like this outfield assist in the 2nd.
The Angels hitters gave him the lead in the 4th, scoring 2 with singles.
Unfortunately, Garza gave up one in the 7th to tie the game up. Then Diaz gave up one in the 8th. Rockies now led 3-2.
The Angels were going to lose, but, Jeremiah remembered he was a bullfrog and walked off the Rockies in the bottom of the 9th!
Angels face Team USA tomorrow, with even more of the team being lost to the WBC team as Jackson, Adams, Cabbage, and Neto will be on Team USA for a day.
I bet they will enjoy themselves at least.
