Angels winning streak hits the skids in blowout loss.

A tremendous 5 game winning streak, fueled by 2 late game comebacks, can to an end Friday night.

Reid Detmers was racking up strikeouts early but couldn’t finish off innings. Two out hits drove his pitch count up early, then bit him for runs later.

The Rangers scored 3 runs in the 4th and chased Detmers after he walked tte lead off man in the 5th. Overall, Detmers tallied 7 K’s including 4 looking. But he also threw 90 pitches and gave up 2 out hits in every full inning.

Ryan Tepera stranded that lead off runner on 2 K’s and a fly out. Tepera stayed in the game and pitched a clean 6th. He’s looked much better this week. So perhaps a bit of a silver lining there.

Down 3-0 in the bottom of the 6th, a late comeback just didn’t feel to be in the cards. Ohtani crushed a ball to deep center but it stayed in the yard. It was that kind of night.

Credit plenty to Nathan Eovaldi, who pitched 8 shutout innings on only 5 hits. And there weren’t many hard hit balls, either. Nathan was bending pitches, getting soft contact, and taking advantage of generous strike zone.

Tucker Davidson came in and absolutely blew chunks, putting a dagger in any hopes of the Angels faithful and desecrating the body.

Brett Phillips tried to at least put a smile on some faces and took the mound in the 9th. He walked into a bases loaded situation with two outs.

The final score was a whole lot to one. Best just to forget about this one as quickly as possible.

Next Sunday’s game in Cleveland is a 8:30 AM game start time here on the West coast. I guess we are the Peacock network game of the week. Congratulations.

it looks like all the Peacock Sunday games start early. Does anyone know why? I know Boston has the early Patriots day start time but why does NBC get to dictate early start times for their games?

Ump was inconsistent with his calls. That first inning strike on call on Shohei at 3-2 turned a walk into a K. Could have changed the tenor of the game if we have Trout on 2nd, Shohei on first, with 1 out.

Not to mention the ball 3 call to Trout that wasn’t . Evo hit that spot on a regular basis and O’Nora kept ringing us up.

Texas did their homework on the umpire you think we would have to.

Interesting that the only cure so far has been 8 hours of daily cardio and balance exercises to try and fix his condition.

Not sure how well the treatment worked but I’m sure it helped with the insomnia since he so tired he slept better each night.

But I doubt he sleeps like a baby like Mike Butcher does though.

Don’t have an athletic account so cannot read the story, is that what the suspected cause of Walsh’s issues are, long COVID?

In order to be considered a two way player don’t you have to do both things at least at replacement level?

Was totally busy tonight, and it looks like that worked out fine.
I came online to see what happened and yikes!
Funny how there are like 5 comments on the post-game tonight instead of like 100 last night.

Doesn’t matter, pitchers can’t give up negative runs to increase their team’s score from 0.

What is going on with the Redbirds and Contreras? I thought pitchers are the ones calling games with PitchCom, but it sounds like he’s catching all sorts of flack for the failings of the starting rotation.

I know some of the Angels use PitchCom to call their own games… Maybe those issues wouldn’t be a problem if he was with the Halos?

He’s never been a great catcher. St. Louis paid up and now they know, too. He’s got a bad contract for a DH.

Curious why we tried to sign him to a multi year deal unless we wanted to use him more at first base?
