Giant Slalom Postgame

Tucker Davidson started today. He gave up a couple hits and a balk to make it 1-0 Giants after the first inning. Overall, he did strike out five guys so there’s that.

Jo Adell resorted to the long ball to tie things up in the top of the second inning.

In the bottom of the second, Davidson struck out three guys in a row but the third one reached base safely thanks to a wild pitch. He walked the next batter and then Thairo Estrada doubled in two runs to make it 3-1 Giants. Wilmer Flores hit what was ruled a single to Andrew Velazquez. The throw to first base was a little weird and drew Jake Lamb off the bag. The throw glanced off Lamb’s mitt and Estrada scored all the way from second on the play. 4-1 Giants.

Jake Lamb doubled in Brett Phillips, who had walked. 4-2 Giants.

The Giants responded with a double and a single to make it 5-2 Giants. With Giants at first and third, they executed a successful delayed double steal to make it 6-2 Giants. Andrew Velazquez got an error for his throw to the plate.

Livan Soto homered in the top of the fifth inning to score Brett Phillips who had singled. 6-4 Giants. Jake Lamb doubled once again and Hunter Renfroe then homered to make it a 6-6 tie.

In the bottom of the seventh inning the Giants parlayed a single, a stolen base, and a ground rule double into a run. 7-6 Giants.

Kenny Rosenberg pitched 3.2 innings of good relief until former Angels first round pick Will Wilson jacked one in the bottom of the eighth inning to make it 9-6 Giants while scoring Thairo Estrada in the process.

To make a long story short, the Angels lost 9-6 Giants.

Ohviohslee the Angels are going to lose 120 games. Even if he’s at SLC most of the year it will be Squid’s fault. Tucky D will be the worst Cy Young winner ever in 2023. Rendon’s obviously toast. Lambs are a stupid animal stupid Perry. We’re all going to die.

But what if this effect lasts more than 24 hours?

The Angels just may have their best outfield in 25 years. Moniak may make the team and Walsh can play out there to. Soto looking good too as the infield is going to be seriously good too.

If the Angels go with 5 starters, would the rotation be Shohei, Sandy, MIA Anderson, Detmers and Saurez? What about Canning, Silseth and Davidson?

Bullpen still has 2 spots open I think, who knows. Estevez the closer?

Whatever happens will be fun when we go to WAR in the season opener. 😀

Since he hasn’t pitched I assume they’re holding off on the TJS announcement for business reasons

Renfroe hit the ball so hard the cover should have lost the cover. 😀

TUCKEEEE DEEEE!!! I’m not worried. He’s just lulling the entire world into a false sense of security.
