There are games every season that are hard to watch. Not just because of it being a blowout loss or anything, but the players playing so horrendously that it is ugly.
On April 29th, 2023, the Angels played such a game, making stupid mistakes on defense while being incredibly un-clutch and hopeless at the plate. I mean really, back to back plays to third being botched, flyballs that should have been caught, and doing the opposite of helping your pitcher out really stings.
Which is even worse when the opponent is doing the so well, making those hard catches, and making those heads up plays. Really, the only thing the Brewers did wrong was arguing with the ump up 7-1 in the 6th. That was also hard to watch with how awkward it all was, even if it did have some benefit of having multiple Brewers ejected.
This was an MLB game, yet felt nothing like one at times. Seriously, the only scoring for the Angels through 7 innings was a sac fly, and the best highlight would be Detmers getting 6k.
At least a Trout Home Run in the 8th made it not as bad of a blowout as it could have been.
Oh and then an other one in the 9th to make it a 2 run game.
Nothing else was of note except maybe that Neto had multiple hits heading leadoff… and got HBP again. Whatever, Angels lose and are at .500 again. By losing. Next game tomorrow morning at 11 AM. Drink responsibly.
