♫ Morning games… in the middle of the week. ♪
Jaime Barria was back out there, looking to solidify his role as the 6th starter on this Angels team. It was going to be against a White Sox team that recently found their bats, something that Anderson learnt yesterday. He went 5 innings, giving up just 1 run on 4 hits, striking out 6 and walking 3.
Offensively, Mike Trout heard that some people were talking smack and smacked the ball super ultra far. Like, 5th furthest this year, 3rd if you don’t want to count altitude games. Oh and Ohtani hit one too. Because he did not want to be left out. It was the 27th time Troutani has homered in a game. Actually, make that Ohtani’s at number 5 as he had to hit one even further. Or were they?
Angels started the scoring by Mike Trout reminding everyone he is still here and that he reads your comments.
Barria got into a jam in the 2nd and allowed a run on a sac fly. Could have been much worse.
Ohtani did not want to miss out on the action and hit a 2 run bomb himself in the 3rd.
Walsh added on with a bases loaded bloop.
Shohei really wanted to upstage Trout and hot one a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG way in the 4th.
Ward got onto the home run train in the 7th.
A single in the 7th did allow another run for the White Sox though.
Chad hit for Ohatni to give him rest and HE hit one a long way.
Walsh then made it 12-2.
The White Sox tried to come back in the 9th but fell short. Angels Win 12-5
Houston series next. Yeah I am scared too. At 30-27, the Angels are solidly in 3rd place in the AL West, and 6th team in the AL to get to 30 wins. Through 57 games in the season and not looking horrible. Yay!
