A Giant Relief! Angels Snap Skid With 7-5 Victory.

The Angels faced off against the Giants for game 2 of the series. They came in riding a rip tide of a 7 game losing streak. Lucas Giolito made his Angel Stadium debut after two horrid games to start his Halo tenure. The Giants countered with an opener, Scott Alexander. Giolito turned in a strong performance, relatively speaking. 6 innings of 3 runs allowed but only 3 hits left him with a lead when he exited. This was thanks to the offense putting up some immediate runs to support him.

In the 1st inning, an RBI single from Shohei drove in Rengifo, 1-0 Angels.

Then Moustakas drove in Shohei with an RBI single of his own. 2-0 Angels.

Then Renfroe came through with a 2 RBI double. 4-0 Angels after 1 inning.

Giolito gave back three runs in the third inning by giving up RBI singles to Joc Pederson and Wilmer Flores.

Two innings later, Brandon Drury turned on the power with an oppo homer off the LCD wall. 5-3 Angels.

In the 7th inning Moustakas made a productive out with a sac fly to drive in Drury. 6-3 Angels.

Dominic Leone came in relief of Aaron Loup in the 8th inning, who had relieved Giolito. He didn’t give up the lead, but it became a little close for comfort when Wilmer Flores got his 3rd and 4th RBIs of the game by hitting a home run. However, the bleeding stopped there. 6-5 Angels

In the bottom of the 8th, the Halos got 1 run back thanks to great situational hitting by Matt Thaiss. A long sac fly gave the Angels a 2-run cushion heading to the 9th. 7-5 Angels.

Leone stayed in to pitch the 9th inning due to Estevez’s unavailability after last night’s meltdown. 3 batters later and the Angels finally had a win after going “all-in”! Woo-hoo!

I mean this site is absolutely hilarious. The team goes 1-7 and you would think they were on the way to the playoffs. Is it possible to have any sense of reality here or is that just a pipe dream on my part?

I don’t see anyone going overboard with last night’s win. I think you’re missing the sarcasm.

I went over Guardians vs Blue Jays game. Guardians only had 3 hits, but RBI double by DFA’d by the A’s player Ramon Laureano. Sho’s Senpai Yusei Kikuchi pitched great, but still lost. Blue Jays had 9 hits, but could not score.

Players of the game:

1.) Giolito for a solid & steady performance.

2.) Moose – All the man does is produce RBI’s.

3.) Drury – The production per AB is only exceeded by Shohei.

4.) Rengifo – Plays EVERY DAMN Day and is productive at the leadoff slot.
