Damn Daniel! Angels Shutout Tigers 5-0

The Angels were riding a 3 game winning streak and facing the actually in competition Tigers. Said Tigers were throwing out their 2nd best pitcher while the Angels were having Davis Daniel make his first ever MLB start in only his 4th ever appearance. Maybe CY Rookie will be on our side for once? Not that a 7th round pick in 2019 would be a ROY contender, not on this team. But, hey, maybe, for one night, he can act like it?

So how did he do? He went 8 innings, giving up NO runs on 4 hits, striking out 8 and walking NONE. And this was the Angels 26th best “prospect” in a farm system that has been ridiculed as being weak and pathetic. Well, well, well…

Magnificent

Highlighted Recap

Did you know, that the Angels have hit a home run in 19 straight games vs the Tigers at Angel Stadium? Make that 20.

1-0 Angels

The next run to score was another home run, this time by Willie Calhoun in the 4th.

2-0 Angels

And then more in the 5th, as Nolan was able to bloop in a run.

3-0 Angels

It was turning into the worst start for Jack Flaherty all year. Because Rengifo ALSO hit a home run off of him.

5-0 Angels!

Wait, a shutout? Yes, Davis Daniel was still pitching, and he had a shutout going through 7, very efficient as well. Only 82 pitches! So of course he goes out in the 8th! 5-0 lead, first MLB start, why not? Well, not only did he get through the 8th easily, but at 99 pitches. An inning short of a Maddux, but the first time an Angels pitcher has gone 8 shutout innings in his first MLB start SINCE 1969!

Joyce pitched the 9th, and the Angels won.

Upcoming

The Angels face the Tigers for 3 more games, and then take Canada Day off. So celebrate Canada Day without Angels baseball, and pay attention to your Canadian friend on the first. They will likely need some cheering up, especially if they liked the Oilers.

I missed the game yesterday, but it is nice to see a great all-around game played by the Angels.

Go Halos!!

Wow-Nice to see the (Reportedly anemic) farm produce a keeper. Yes, only one start, but that down and away wandering slider to lefties is going to be murder on the opposition.

FYI with an off day on Monday, the Angels don’t need a 5th starter ( Sorry Roansy) until next Saturday July 6th in Chicago. Soriano and his mystery ailment is eligible to come off the IL on July 2nd so he could be activated for that next start date if hes back.

I don’t even think Soriano and a stomach bug, it was just to rest him to prevent injury with this being his his first year starting.

Name something that hasn’t happened in 55 years until tonight.

Angels pitcher makes his first MLB start and goes 8 scoreless. Good news. Not sure how to deal with it.

4 straight!

Mr Danny! No BBs baby. That’s the way to do it. Even if he’d given up a solo HR or something, no one would care. STTTRRROOOOONG Cy Rookie start for Double Dee. Some solid offense too. So many wins lately. I feel weird.

I’ll check the comments below to see why I shouldn’t be in a good mood tonight.

Complaining about Rengifo, incessantly with the 25 larger issues plaguing this franchise is….well…..ridiculous.

You have a guy who was pitching well with a good lead, not in duress, likely will never be in the position again to gain a shutout and he gets pulled… just because the pitch count manual says so.

A young pitcher that attained an unexpected level of awesomeness in his first start.

Wash did well in pulling him when he did.

With a win tomorrow we’d be in a pace to win 70. It sounds terrible but it wasn’t long ago we looked liked win 58. Thank you, Oakland, for getting us on track
