Biasball Postgame- Angels Win 5-2

Today the Angels returned to the hallowed shrine of east coast biasball. How did we do? Did we leave them anything to remember us by this time?

Pitching for the Angels was Jose Suarez this time. But first, Clark Schmidt came out to pitch for the Yankees. Taylor Ward led things off with a double to right field upping his average to .250. Shohei Ohtani then hit a homer to make it 2-0 Angels. Ohtani joined Urshela north of the .300 mark.

Mike Trout singled to put a man on for Anthony Rendon who made the first out on a fly ball to left.

Hunter Renfroe popped into a double play in foul territory. Mike Trout was out at first.The Angels continue to score their runs in the first inning and they continue to frustrate.

Anthony Rizzo got a two out double in the Yankees half of the inning whereupon Suarez issued a four pitch walk to Gleyber Torres. He also walked DJ LeMahieu to load them up. Luckily he was able to retire Oswald Peraza on a force out to end the inning.

In the second, Lamb and Urshela both struck out. At least Zach Neto made contact for his out. Isaiah Kiner-Falefa singled in the second but Suarez picked him off. Aaron Hicks and Anthony Volpe both walked to bring up Aaron Judge with two men on. Luckily he lined out to end the inning. Everybody seemed to be settling in for the grind until the bullpens come into play. Angels hitters started striking out a lot while Suarez was walking a lot of Yankees.

In the fourth inning, Mike Trout doubled and then Anthony Rendon singled to score Trout. 3-0 Angels.

Hunter Renfroe also doubled to drive in Rendon. 4-0 Angels.

Zach Neto got a two out hit by pitch and Logan O’Hoppe walked but Taylor Ward grounded into a force out to end the frame.

Suarez gave up two more walks and a hit to load the bases before being replaced by Andrew Wantz. Wantz walked in a run. 4-1 Angels. Aaron Judge hit a sac fly to make it 4-2 Angels. Anthony Rizzo struck out to stop the bleeding.

In the fifth inning, Shohei Ohtani reached on yet another catcher interference. Mike Trout struck out. During Anthony Rendon’s plate appearance Shohei stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error. Rendon hit a sac fly to make it 5-2 Angels.

Scoring then went on hold. The Angels did nothing through the ninth inning when the Yankees came up with three more outs to get at least three runs. Quijada retired the Yanks in order to get the save.

I never predict anything having to do with baseball because I feel like as soon as I do the gods will mock me and Packy Naughten will throw six no hitters in a row.

At sea level it somehow becomes a 37% K rate plus giving up home runs off your own glove.

Regardless of the inflated stats, I would definitely make the move. While he has contact problems, he’ll run into one more than Lamb.

I find it odd that Walsh got released last week from the Utah facility but no other news. Why hasn’t he started a rehab assignment at the great Salt Lake?

Something isn’t right here.

It is such an effing privilege watching Ohtani. Home run 117mph off bat, manufactures run on bases, of course the .87 era.

Rendon is hitting ok so far, his power should come. I remember in Washington he’d always start real slow then heat up in June and be clutch. Hopefully same happens.

If can take 2 of 3 from Yankees then got 7 at home against KC Athletics, 5-2 should be absolute minimum. We can get on a hot streak.

Take 2 of 3 and we get come home at 10-9 and with a bit of momentum. Things are trending upward. I likey.

It’s a privilege and honor to watch Ohtani play and he’s so damn clutch in the big moments when the stage is bigger.
Is there any doubt he’d do memorable things in the postseason?

He did ground out weakly when a hit would’ve won it the other night. So I’m still convinced.

My oldest started preschool this year and I think we’ve had some sort of illness circulating through our house no joke since Fall. Got croup this time, so it’s a party. There are worse things in the world I know, wife and I are just so over it. But wins over the Yankees somehow seem to brighten the day, no matter what else is going on. 😅

We went through that last year. Not croup to my knowledge but a wide array of sniffles and fevers.

To me, even by eye test standards, Rendon has been decent offensively this season.

It was that one bad game that sticks out, understandably, because there’s only been a few games. But if Rendon maintains this pace and he stays healthy, it’ll be his best season yet as an Angel.

Pros: BP. Herget got us thru some tough AB’s and I loved the way that Quesadilla attacked the bottom of the order.

Shohei doing Shohei things under the brightest of lights.

Top of 5 of the order all getting at least one hit.

Cons: Another stink bomb by Suarez and Lamb continuing to see AB’s.

Still stoked on the whole.

Yeah Suarez with his line last night would probably be DFAed if the team hadn’t won. Still might. Probably should. With Canning looking healthy and Silseth carving up AAA, why wait? Homeboy’s gotta work on that control in SLC. I don’t even want him in the pen rn.

Great game. Great win. Really thought the bullpen would get their asses handed to them when Suarez was pulled. Good to see.

Really hope his leash is tightening as well.

The Bachman cometh. He looks like he actually learned a decent change up at this point. Needs more MiLB starts, but both he and Silseth will be pressuring guys like Suarez soon. Next, I will focus my positivity beam on Ky Bush.

Great win! I like that the team is consistently scoring a decent amount of runs. Perry built this team this year to score runs, and that, they’re doing, from the usual suspects too. Hopefully the pitching gets more consistent soon.
