The Angels had to get up early to face the Rays today. I know I did not feel like watching even if the team was not tanking. AM Baseball is annoying after all. But how did they do anyway? Well Canning went 5 innings, giving up 2 runs on 3 hits, striking out 7 and walking 3. Really trying to keep injuries down eh?
And how was the tanking going? Did everyone get the-COME ON MAN!
Yeah Jo Adell decided to actually try for once and played good today. I get that he is trying to not be a failed prospect and all but he is ruining the tank here. Seriously, a home run is not what he is supposed to do.
Oh well, it was close enough for the bullpen to blow it. Could they though? The answer is yes. Yes they could.
The Rays scored first, Canning following his orders.
Fletcher singled in 2 but you can’t really blame him as it was really an error that scored them.
After Canning gave up another run on a groundout, he was removed and it was even util Jo Adell did a thing and hit a 2 run home run.
Angels bullpen allowed an RBI double though to make it close.
It was set up for the bullpen to blow it, which would work. Otherwise, it would mean a series win at the Trop for the first time since 2016. So, would they blow it, or fail to blow it?
Charlie sheen blew it! Rays tied it in the 9th with some help from Neto.
And a bloop means the Rays win. Angels lose. They blew it and tank is intact!
9 Games left. At Minnesota, and home vs Texas and the A’s. Enjoy this baseball, you will miss it come January.
