Angels SWEEP Padres

The Angels had a chance to have a sweep at home. I repeat, the 2024 Angels had a chance to sweep the 2nd place Padres at the Big A. It would be Jose Soriano vs Dylan Cease, but, it was a real possibility. And it made no sense. The Angels SUCK at home, and the Padres do well on the road. Meaning that either the Big A was not away enough for the Padres to do well in, which was certainly a possibility given the crowds the last 2 games. Or, said crowd made it feel like an away game for the Angels. Maybe both?

Whatever the reason, it was up to Soriano to have a good game and give us a chance to see the Shufflebot once more. So, how did he do? He went 6 innings, giving up 2 runs (1 earned) on 6 hits, striking out 1 and walking 1. For a game on National TV, or whatever FS1 calls themselves these days, it was a good showing.

Highlighted Recap

Angels scored first with a leadoff home run by Nolan!

1-0 Angels

And that wasn’t all as in the 2nd Neto hit a 2 run bomb!

3-0 Angels

Meanwhile, Soriano was cruising. Lo5s of grounball outs and stress free innings. Everything was looking up. Until the 6th when the defense fell apart.

First, Ward airmails a throw.

3-1 Angels

And another run comes in because of Adell being unable to catch. Right when he won defensive player of the month!

3-2 Angels

Shaking my head, Jo Adell of the Angels. At least the load was barely intact and Soriano left with the chance of a win.

The bullpen did their job. Even Ben Joyce! Remember him? Throws fast. Like really fast? Yeah. And Matt Moore had a chance for the save and a sweep of the Padres. ANGELS WIN!

Upcoming

No game tomorrow. Thursday games are again not a thing for the Angels AGAIN. But they will next week… because there is no game Monday. As such, the Angels are going 4 man rotation until June 15th, which is something I would have liked to know earlier, but whatever. Oh and Trashos this weekend. Yay~

Very nice cap game, especially having to overcome Ward’s throw to nowhere.

A sweep? At home?

I almost feel bad for the Padres. But they employ Machado so screw em.
