Another day, another blowout loss. I have a planned power outage tomorrow and not being able to watch this team is more like a blessing with how badly this team has been playing. Watching today was going to be painful even before the game started. All August things have been falling apart as each loss drains what little energy is left in this Fandom.
Today it is trade deadline disappointment Lucas Giolito on the mound. And he pitched 6 innings giving up 4 runs on 7 hits, striking out 5 and walking 2. Yeesh. That we had Lorenzen last year and was available for cheaper this year really stings when he’s been just so much better. And Giolito also got out pitched by Jordon Montgomery who was also a trade deadline deal. Maybe it is the culture? After all, players keep doing worse when they arrive here.
Anyway it didn’t matter how well or not the pitching went since the Angels bats have been dry ice cold as of late as no one pitches to Ohtani and everyone else just can’t do squat at the moment.
Whatever, here are the few highlights for the Angels.
Luis Rengifo knocked on the a run in the 5th to not make it a shutout.
Randal Grichuk hit a 2 run bomb in the 9th to make it 7-3 Texas.
That was it. All the positive plays in the game. Angels lose. Again. Bleh.
