Angels slugfest lands knockout blow to Valdez

Angels 9 Astros 7

This game sure had it’s share of excitement.

Schanuel opened this game with a 65MPH single that had a .220 XBA. But the Angels would open up the scoring in this game with a Taylor Ward sac fly and Schanuel on third. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, right?

The Astros answered back quickly and Detmers struggled to get the 3rd out in the second inning, leading to a 3 run home run by Altuve and putting the Astros up 4-1.

Detemers would eventually leave the game after allowing 6 runs on 8 hits and leaving the Angels with a 6-1 deficet.

But these scrappy Angels fought back with a 7 run 5th inning that included back to back jacks by O’Hoppe & Adell. Schanuel also homered in the inning and Neto followed with a solo shot of his own in the 6th.

The Astros did mount a rally off Estevez, scratching across a run but Estevez closed it out. What a ballgame!

The Halos Flambeing Frambor was awesome.

Framber probably needed his neck iced down after those neck whips on those shots.

Go Halos!

So you are guaranteeing a win tomorrow ? or did Saturday Night never happen kind of like August 1, 2012?

It’s funny, but earlier tonight when I saw we came back, I was thinking it’s Shufflebot tonight after all. I knew something felt off, and I went back to look at previous scores to remember that we are actually only at 2.
I guess tonight’s win was so fun that it felt like 5 straight.

About the Trashtros coming in having won 8 of 10, I’ll give them the 2 of 3 vs Milwaukee but the other 6-1 came against Detroit (sub .500, next to last in the Central) and Oakland.

I’m looking forward to more games within the division. We’re not going anywhere but I’m starting to think we’ll have a lot of fun this season

The next best thing to not winning consistently is winning irritatingly.

The “kidz” are starting to make me believe that they’re a legit “core”. Exciting

Cool to Jo Adell playing well and clearly enjoying himself.

It’s going to be fun when Trout is the DH in about a month. I’m hoping he can come back and mash the way he did in 2022 after the back thing.

Trout is an old 33, put him in the DH slot and he’ll age even faster. Like his old, old teammate Albert.

Tonight was a legitimate quality win and something to build on. We beat a good pitcher when our pitcher wasn’t very good and the bull pen, with the exception of Estevez, held the lead.

The bats won it for us tonight, something that hasn’t happened very often. There were also a few nice defensive plays as well …

That was some kind of video game inning. I was listening in the car on the way home.

Go Halos!!

LTBU! And we’re out of the cellar.

Also, Estevez, Suarez and Detmers need to go.

Hard to call for Suarez to go after this outing (other outings, sure).

Estevez should not be closing any more close games.

I’d like to see ANYONE else close at this point. Someone brought up Garcia. Fine, try him Or perhaps call up Joyce and see what he’s got.

May be the best game of the season so far, not in terms of the high blood pressure it induced at the end, but how we got there.

Angels down 6-1 due to our “ace” flailing.
Then our core four hits HRs in the game.
And we beat the 🗑️🗑️🗑️🗑️🗑️

How could this not be the best game yet?!
