Angels Win Despite No Power in Detroit

It is Angels at Detroit, both teams coming into the series doing well since the break. With Canning vs E-Rod for game 1. Can the Canning man can the Detroit lineup? Kinda? He went 5 innings, giving up 2 runs on 7 hits, striking out 8 and walking none. It wasn’t great, but hey, I’ll take 5 innings, 2 ER.

Not that anyone was able to see anything, as the cameras were not working, proving, yet again that you can’t have anything in Detroit. At least they eventually turned on, but the sound was… not good. It is 2023 and the backup option is an underwater mic? Yeesh.

Partly Highlighted Recap

Well, the Moose was loose to start the game, doubling in 2 in the top of the 1st. No pics exist, however, so it may not be real.

What was real, was the Tigers scoring in the 4th, making it 2-1 Angels.

Well, that is not ideal

But, the Angels would get that run back in the 5th!

3-1 Angels

And another one as well.

4-2 Angels

Unfortunately, Canning gave up a home run in the bottom half.

4-2 Angels

Canning left after the 5th, with Soriano pitching 2 shutout innings after that. But the bigger news was that the broadcast was now fixed! How did that happen? Erica Weston rented a truck, went to Lowes, and brought back a large generator. Seriously.

After a scoreless Matt Moore inning, Rengifo tripled in a run in the 8th!

Ward then singled in Rengifo to put this game out of save reach.

6-2 Angels

Estevez did come in anyway, giving up a run.

6-3 Angels

And he allowed another run. Uh oh.

6-4 Angels

Oh, whew, a pop fly to center, game ov-WHAT THE?!

TIED GAME

Extra innings Time. Wee…

Well, Mickey Moniak made up for his error by driving in the Manfred runner in the 10th.

7-6 Angels!

Aaaand then gets thrown out at 3B on a wild pitch. Now Loup has to come in to try and win a 1 run game.

He did it. Loup got the save as the Angels win!

Upcoming

Somehow, someway, the Angels win! Two more vs Detroit before a trip to Toronto. Only a few more games before the deadline, every single one counts.

Game ball Squid 🦑 , hitting a robust 245. Loop has been pretty good past 15 games. Nice to see these roster fillers perform.

And In the mind blown department. Since August 17th of last year ( 123 PA’s) Squid is now slashing .261/.328/.423

Nice. He seems to do enough to stay relevant, I still like his thievery on the bases as a plus for this team.

Will smith runs through a perfectly positioned ( Hassleman should take notes) Dino Ebel stop sign at 3rd base to score the tying run for the Doyers in a crazy come back on the Blue Jays in the 9th down 4. They just pulled a Tigers. Hope they can close it out

Nothing we can do about it but if that recent 1-10 stretch had been even 5-6 we’d be WC3.

Still, if we maintain this through July 31st we’ll be keeping Shohei

Yup so true it’s crazy how even going into that Doyers series at the big A on June 20 we were 7 games up and in WC spot.. then things went south

I see a lot of negativity and we still found a way to win today.  😂  Good teams find a way to win even with mistakes. Aren’t we playoff bound with or without Ohtani?

Congratulations to Hanamaki East High School baseball team who just earned the ticket to national Koshien tournament by winning regional final. I am certain that Sho’s alma mater’s victory lifts his spirit even further to pursue victory tomorrow and beyond.

So, Lorenzen is slated for tomorrow and he’s on a roll of 21+ scoreless innings.

He’s still “mid” IMO and I think the boys prove that tomorrow.

Keep it rolling….

Our lefties are gonna mash Lorenzen.

Sandy should be up for the challenge to best his buddy and former teammate. I’m concerned that if the bloop hits start to fall against Sandy he will lose control.

And with this post they will now go 0-12 w/15 K’s. Don’t ask how, the angels will figure out a way.

Angels = W
Astros = W + Rangers = L
Yankees = L
Mariners = W (insane comeback)
Guardians = W

Red Sox = up 4-1 vs Braves (????)
Blue Jays = tied 1-1

A Blue Jays loss would make this a successful day for the rooting guide.

I would hasten to add Orioles who got walked off by lowly Phillies, wasting pristine relief inning by Sho’s BFF Shintaro Fujinami.

The Orioles are so far ahead of us, its outta sight outta mind. I was wrong about BAL — they are for real.

Fixing Fujinami is an interesting development

I agree with you. I actually think Baltimore being the best AL team, much better than Rays, Assros. or Rangers at this point. If they are to add another vet SP, they might give Braves or Dodgers a run for their money. in the World Series.

I decided to take my dogs out for a walk after the final out of the ninth inning. When I got back, the game was over. Best dog walk of the summer!

Alright, we need to put Rengifo in his own small locker room, or a janitors closet, to keep him away from Moniak and our other young players. His brain is rubbing off on them.

If Halos can stay in the race that might be better than any trade acquisitions, outside of a starting pitcher

Do this years draft picks play in the minors at all anymore? I haven’t seen any new names in the boxscores.
