The Angels play October Baseball! Well, in the regular season that is. It is October first, the beginning of Spooky Month, and it is the final game of the regular season. Not a good season for Angels fans, not since August, but a memorable one, I guess. And on the final game, they decided to win despite it being against the team’s best interest not to. Oh well.
Carson Fulmer made the spot start, going 5 shutout innings, allowing just 2 hits and 3 walks while getting 3 strikeouts. Not bad, although, not good if you want to tank.
Drury continued to not get the memo and hit a home run in the first inning.
Grichuk did not listen either as he hit one as well in the 3rd.
The A’s gift the Angels a run in the 4th, even though they have locked in the worst record in MLB this season.
But really it didn’t matter since Drury continued to not listen as he hit yet another home run.
Escobar singled in another run, which made it very like the Angels would win this thing.
A wild pitch in the 6th meant a 7th run.
The A’s scored in the 7th.
Oh and the Angels gave up one last home run just for good measure.
The game should have ended like that but an error and a hit meant it did not. 7-3 Angels in the 9th.
Angels win and finish the season at 73-89. Who had that in the preseason predictions? I know I didn’t.
No more Angels baseball until next year. Root for a good team in the playoffs I guess. O’s, Rays, Jays, Twins, Rangers, and Trash-o’s in the AL and Dodgers, Sneks, Brewers, Braves, Phillies, and Marlins in the NL. Other than that, look up top draft prospects or something. 6th best odds in the lottery. Angels will get top 9 at least due to how the balls fall. I think. Lottery is stupid.
