Angels pitching gift the Dodgers a win

As both teams are down their best players, it is a battle of depth. The young Detmers vs the old vet Kershaw in a potential 2023 matchup preview. Neither went as far as they could have, as it was still Spring Training after all.

Young gun

The Angels batters got to Kershaw multiple times but, sadly, the Dodgers got to the Angels bullpen as well. In the end, the Dodgers came out on top mostly due to bad pitching.

Highlighted Recap

Ward started off the game with a leadoff homerun!

POWAR!

Neto knocked in another one to make it 2-0 Angels early.

Neat-o for Neto

The Angels got to Kershaw again in the 3rd, with a solo shot by Kevin Paldo.

3-0 Angels!

Unfortunately, the Angels let the Dodgers back into it, with 2 in the 4th, and 1 in the 5th. On a positive note, it was almost much worse, as the bases were loaded with 1 out when the Angels were able to get a GIDP to end that inning.

And they got even more lucky since Neto saved a run with his glove.

Neto!

They weren’t so lucky in the 8th, as after failing to score themselves due to some iffy umpire non home run call, the Angels bullpen allowed 2 runs to score.

Angels were about to lose, until Cabbage showed up, and showed why you need to eat your greens as he mashed a 2 run BLAST to tie the game back up.

MY CABBAGE!

It remained tied going into the bottom of the 9th, where the Angels walked in the losing run.

Upcoming

The Angels fall to 8-5 and face the Sneks. Same noon-ish time, same Bally channel. Last game until the time changes. Yes, on Sunday morning, just after midnight, we spring ahead. Time changes, ughhhh…

Lord, Cabbage hit the snot out of that one.

Padlo, Thaiss, Cabbage, Lamb… AAA may not be totally devoid of offensive help at the corners/catcher. I know Thaiss has to stay up or pass waivers, not sure on the others, but we’ve got some thick boyz as depth. I’m all about Trey Cabbage, dude already has his hip hop name for gah sake.

Adams still lookin OK.

Detmers looks fairly on track.

Obviously this team is the worst and we will lose all our games and even assume some of the Astros losses.

Gotta love walking in runs. Was an ugly occurrence that happened a decent amount last year when the games counted. Hopefully they leave that all behind when spring training ends.

whutz ther to hate?
A full stadium and a bad team plus the visiting team’s fans pack our house like they did the Clippers. Good farm systems don’t matter either.

Sorry Toots but you vowed there would be no replies from you this year. So now that would make you both a hypocrite and a liar.
