Postgame #1 Angels Win 7-6

The Rays struck early with a two spot in the first inning. The Angels did not answer. In the top of the second inning Randal Grichuk made a great catch to rob a homer.

The Angels parlayed several infield hits and a sac fly to tie the game in the second inning. Moniak:

Grichuk’s sac fly:

There were also some strikeouts from the usual suspects.

The Angels had a wild bottom half of the third inning. They scored on an error, a wild pitch, a passed ball, and a double. 6-2 Angels.

Then Josh Lowe homered to make it 6-3 Angels. So did Rene Pinto. 6-5 Angels. Chase Silseth couldn’t get through the fourth inning. Griffin Canning came in. The Angels still clung to a 6-5 lead. Runners were at first and second with two outs. He retired Randy Arazorena on one pitch.

The Angels went three up three down in the fourth inning. Brandon Drury homered in the fifth inning to make it 7-5 Angels.

Jonathan Aranda homered in the top of the sixth to make it 7-6 Angels. Shohei Ohtani had a base running screw up in the seventh inning.

Matt Moore came in to pitch the eighth inning. The score was still 7-6 Angels after the top of the eighth. Hunter Renfroe came in to pinch hit but did nothing. Randal Grichuk flied out. Jordyn Adams grounded out to short.

Reynaldo Lopez came in for the save attempt. Yandy Diaz got a hit on the first pitch. Brandon Lowe and Randy Arozarena struck out. Luke Raley lined out to Grichuk in left. The Angels won 7-6.

It will be interesting to see how Teen Wolf bounces back from today’s tough outing, but Canning gave us some solid long relief to balance things out.

That Drury AB in which he eventually homered was the highlight of the game IMO.

Now let’s snatch Game 2 by hook or crook.

Finally, LFG Sean O’Malley in tonight’s title fight.

Why is Silseth “Teen Wolf”?

Ella Dela Cruz, I believe, has had his second MLB inside the parker just now. The Reds are trying to help the Angels.

It’s just enough time during this interval between games to finish battening down the hatches. The storm, she is a brewin’.

Yup. I covered my tiki statues and moved my plants away from under the eaves. We’re now expected to get 2.5″ of rain tomorrow. Haven’t had that much at one time since 2017.

With the recent passing of Robbie Robertson I think this is appropriate… Alot of storm references and imagery in this song. It is a classic, just like all the songs from “The Brown Album.” One of the two or three best albums of the 60’s, and one of the best ever to be honest …

Look Out Cleveland – The Band (The Band 9 of 12) – YouTube

A sampling of the lyrics :


Look Out, Cleveland, the storm is comin’ through,
And it’s runnin’ right up on you.
Look out, Houston, There’ll be thunder on the hill;
Bye-bye, baby, don’t cha lie so still.
Was Wedn’sday evenin’ when first we heard the word,
It did not come by train nor bird.
T’was when Ben Pike stepped down to say,
“This old town’s gonna blow away.”
Chain lightnin’, frightnin’ as it may seem,
Must not be mistaken for just another dream.
Justice of peace don’t know his own fate,
But he’ll go down in the shelter late.

…….”

Is activating Trout for game 2 allowable or did they need to do that prior to game 1?

I believe there has to be a player removal from 26 (today 27 because of DH) man active roster. I predict it will be Jordyn Adams. So my answers to your questions are Yes and Yes.

I will be monitoring Jeff Fletcher ‘X’ closely.

Thanks for handling X duty. I’m on UFC duty on my end.

Jordyn Adams will have few more opportunities to have his first base hit after recent call up. Hopefully our 7th, 8th and 9th batters get on base, or it will be a long day/evening.

Hopefully said first hit is a blast over the fence….

Almost Day to day……Angel translation

A week or more from today, if we are lucky. Probably 2 weeks.

The Angels are now the 9th best in AL thanks to Red Sux thumping on MFYankees today.
