Angels get blown out by Mariners

The Angels were still in Seattle, playing at the field formerly known as Safeco, with a 3 game winning streak on the line. It would be a tough one, considering that the Mariners had Luis Castillo on the mound, an ace who is paid like one, while, the Angels had Jose Suarez, an inconsistent starter who had a good half last year.

Alas, Suarez looked like his old self, not his new self, giving up runs and bombs left and right in his shortened outing. 6 runs in not even 5 innings, yeah, that won’t do. Even if the offense was able to do anything before the 8th, it would be a tall order to win this one.

Highlighted Recap

Suarez screwed up right away with a wild pitch to give up the first run of the day.

1-0 Mariners

It was made worse in the 4th, when Suarez gave up a long home run to deep center.

2-0 Mariners

Then, Rengifo stemmed some of the bleeding by saving a run, but one more scored anyway.

3-0 Mariners

After the Angels failed to score, Hernandez took Suarez deep again.

6-0 Mariners

Jaime Barria came in, and he too gave up a home run.

8-0 Mariners

And another run.

9-0 Mariners

Oh and another home run.

11-0 Mariners

Is there a positive highlight? Well, no shutout at least as Renfroe cashed in a run.

yay~

And Drury made it 2.

11-2 Mariners

Oh and Barria going the distance in relief means the bullpen is all rested besides him. So there is that, I guess.

It is the small victories sometimes…

Upcoming

The Angels have one more in Seattle tomorrow, Ohtani day, hopefully it goes better than last time, or today. With the loss, the Angels are now 3-2 on the season. Bleh.

We need to win the series today. With a #1 pitcher going against our #5, the loss was expected.

Hmmm, though some called me a “doomer” for saying that expected loss would happen.

Cant win em all. But Suarez should be on a shorter leash in April and May. Has a knack for looking great when we’re out of it and bad when we still have a chance.

100% with you here. I’m watching Canning’s minor league start carefully. If he emerges healthy and has the stamina, I think he’ll be up here quickly. Ditto for Joyce.

I figured if we were going to lose a game in this series this would be the one. Hopefully, with Ohtani on the bump tomorrow, we take the series.

Well, at least we didn’t take on another huge contract by signing one of the top free agent pitchers, instead of just relying on in-house solutions like we did, right? Right?

Arrrr GNarrrrr! I demanded a champion and got Gavined. No bueno! Did I tell you guys that I am concerned about the bullpen, shortstop, first base and 3/6 of our starters? I did. I told you that. Me. I did it. And tonight I am right. Clap for me now. I saw Phillips with my eyes and now I’m sterile! All because Arte is cheap! The TV broadcast was all fked up too, probably because Arte is too cheap to send the radio guys on the road. Ohtani is obviously broken because his soul has been eaten by Arte.

Nevin.

But for realz. Suarez, buddy, you need to do better next start. Guys want your job.

So……. 4-2 after tomorrow’s game, right?

Just one of those games. It will be interesting to see if Trout is in the lineup tomorrow. Aren’t they managing his PT carefully?

I would expect Urshela to replace Fletcher tomorrow to go along with O’Hoppe starting as well.

11-2, and it really wasn’t even that close.
