Shutout Win Postgame

Can the Angels out-lose those lovable losers from Chicago’s north side? We shall see.

Inning 1:

Nolan Schanuel walked. Keston Hiura singled on a pop up. Taylor Ward singled on a liner to left. Willie Calhoun struck out. There were questionable calls by the newbie umpire. Logan O’Hoppe was hit by a pitch to make it 1-0 Angels.

Mickey Moniak lined into a double play to right. Keston Hiura was gunned down at the plate on the play.

Nico Hoerner singled to lead off the Cubs half of the first. Patrick Wisdom and Cody Bellinger both struck out. So did Seiya Suzuki.

Inning 2:

Zach Neto flied out to right. Luis Guillorme popped out to third base. Jo Adell walked. There were questionable calls by the newbie umpire. I guess we’ll take it. Nolan Schanuel singled to left. Keston Hiura singled to left to score Jo Adell. 2-0 Angels.

Taylor Ward was batting while Keston Hiura got himself thrown out trying to steal second.

Ian Happ flied out to center. Michael Busch grounded out to Hiura at second. Dansby Swanson struck out swinging.

Inning 3:

Colten Brewer came in to replace Kyle Hendricks on the mound. Lower back tightness, they said. Taylor Ward came back out to bat some more. They zoomed his head for ball four. He had to duck to avoid being hit. Willie Calhoun hit into an obvious double play but a pitcher throwing error led to men on first and third with no outs. Logan O’Hoppe single on a liner to right to make it 3-0 Angels.

Mickey Moniak grounded out to advance the runners. Zach Neto singled on a fly ball to center to make it 4-0 Angels.

Luis Guillorme was batting when the Angels executed a delayed double steal for O’Hoppe to score. 5-0 Angels. There was an error.

Guillorme then walked. While Jo Adell was batting, the Angels did a double steal to put men at second and third with one out. Jo Adell popped out. Nolan Schanuel fouled one off of his back foot but stayed in the game only to be hit by a pitch in the same foot. Colten Brewer got yanked at this point, thankfully. The guy was downright dangerous. Jorge Lopez came in to pitch. Keston Hiura grounded into a force out at second.

David Bote grounded out to Guillorme at third. So did Tomas Nido. Nico Hoerner decided to be different and flied out to right.

Inning 4:

Taylor Ward drew a walk. Willie Calhoun grounded through the right for a hit. Logan O’Hoppe grounded into a RBI double play to make it 6-0 Angels.

Mickey Moniak grounded a single to center. Zach Neto popped out to end the threat. Cody Bellinger and Patrick Wisdom both struck out, not in that order. Seiya Suzuki flied out.

Inning 5:

Drew Smyly came in to replace Jorge Lopez on the mound. Luis Guillorme grounded out to third. Jo Adell jacked one to make it 7-0 Angels.

Nolan Schanuel grounded out to first. Keston Hiura lined out to left. Ian Happ grounded out to third. Michael Busch singled on a liner to right. Dansby Swanson struck out. David Pote grounded out to Neto.

Inning 6:

Taylor Ward grounded out to third. Willie Calhoun walked. Logan O’Hoppe struck out looking. Mickey Moniak grounded out to second. Tomas Nido grounded out to Zach Neto. Nico Hoerner grounded out to third. Patrick Wisdom struck out swinging.

Inning 7:

Nolan Schanuel got a base hit to left. Keston Hiura lined out to center field. Cody Bellinger grounded out to second. Seiya Suzuki grounded out to third. Ian Happ grounded out to first.

Inning 8:

Taylor Ward lined out to right center. Willie Calhoun flied out to left center field. Logan O’Hoppe doubled to Bellinger. Mickey Moniak flied out. Michael Busch stuck out liiking. Dansby Swanson struck out swinging. Tomas Nido grounded out to third.

Inning 9:

Tyson Miller came in to pitch for the Cubs. Zach Neto grounded out 6-3. Luis Guillorme flied out to center. Jo Adell struck out swinging. Ben Joyce came in to pitch for Tyler Anderson. Nico Hoerner got a base hit to left center. Myles Mastrobuoni came in to pinch hit for Patrick Wisdom. He quickly flied out to left. Cody Bellinger struck out looking at 103 MPH up and away.

Why are two of the first three videos Cubs highlights ? I mean, the Angels DID win the game 7-0.

The Suzuki play in RF is worthy of showing, but maybe limit Cubs to just that one highlight….

Major development happening right now in Rocket City. Perry’s Pitching Lab is cooking.

Caden Dana full season stats:
90.1 IP
2.99 ERA
1.03 WHIP
97 Ks
last start – 6 IP, 4 hits, 1 ER, 9:1 K:BB

Sam Bachman’s last 4 starts:
20 IP
4.05 ERA
1.25 WHIP
19 Ks
last start – 6 IP, 2 hits, 1 ER, 8:2 K:BB

Jack Kochanowicz last 5 starts:
34 IP (2 CGs in his last 3 starts!)
1.85 ERA
0.94 WHIP
33 Ks
last start – 9 IP, 5 hits, 1 ER, 7:0 K:BB

Operating under the assumption Anderson is traded, Sandy misses all of 2025, and we finally give up on Canning…

1. Soriano (26 in October)
2. Detmers (25 tomorrow, HBD Reid)
3. Silseth (25 in May)
4. Bachman (25 in September)
5. Kochanowicz (24 in December)
6. Dana (21 in September)

….and we win 70 games in 2025 with this staff.

I’m glad the players listed are performing well at AA. Soriano is having a good ML season. The rest are significant question marks. The fact remains that there needs to be a significant infusion of talent at all levels of the organization.

At least give me reasons to argue with you! I agree with all points made.

There are real reasons for optimism with Dana and Kochanowicz specifically.

Dana finally cracked the Top 100. He’s a legitimate prospect having a sensational season thus far.

Koch is one of those “toolsy HSer” that Eppler drafted. Thankfully, Perry and Co. may have fixed him. 6’7 giant throwing 97-100 ⛽️ with 2 CGs in his last 3 starts.

Maybe with a little health luck, Bachman can realize his potential as well. The velocity has ticked back up around 95-97 and we know from last season his slider is a ++ pitch.

Hitters? We need hitters too.

We can’t drive hit .189
No, no, no, I can’t hit…(we can’t hit .189!)
We can’t can’t hit .189!

Great job P12 but You forgot to include whoever we draft next Sunday. 😃 

Also dont rule out Ryan Costeiu. He’ll be 24 in November. As he makes his way back after missing all of 2023 from TJS, the Angels are taking it easy with him. But he’s started 8 games now for Tri City with a 1.076 WHIP and a 2.08 ERA. They still have him on a 70 pitch limit and his walks are still too high but in his last 3 starts he has a 0.64 ERA 0.714 WHIP and a .336 OPS against. I know that ball park and League is a pitching dominant but those numbers play anywhere . I would not be surprised if he gets back up to RC by early August

Ryan, grandson of Jacques Cousteau. Little known fact, Jacques was a switch hitting OF’er with a hose for an arm. Had an OPS of .892 for the Toledo Mud Hens back in 1962.

On a side note, congratulations to Kevin Pillar on his 10-year service time. Quite an achievement ! He’s really been a good presence for the team.

I imagine if the score was much closer yesterday he would have gotten an AB against their LHP.

Amazing turnaround year by Anderson. I thought he could give back the favor and Maddux the Cubs, but he did say himself he ran out of gas at the end.

When every starter gets a hit or 2, then we should win, although if helps when the starter goes 8 innings of shutout ball. Great win today with everyone contributing good play and some leaving some laughing too.

This explains the energy level today:

The Los Angeles Angels got involved with a budding Major League Baseball tradition Saturday by having their rookies go on a coffee run outside the Chicago Cubs’ Wrigley Field while in full uniform.

Catcher Logan O’Hoppe and first baseman Nolan Schanuel were among the Angels rookies who took part in the light-hearted stunt on Saturday”

I heard Schanuel fell down and dropped everyone’s soy milk lattes rounding the corner of the building.

And how do we do that if we’re drafting 8th Einstein?

Reply to  Cowboy26

interesting that “Einstein” is still in use here and that “Hawking” never caught on. It’s sort of similar to “Ruth” rather than “Aaron” or “Bonds” or maybe more like poor Gwawrddur who, although he glutted ravens on the ramparts, “was no Arthur”

In any case, Bazzana will be gone by the 3rd pick at the latest so along with drafting Bazzana maybe we should trade Calhoun for Judge (if the Yankees pick up the rest of Judge’s salary)

I was thinking if Old Hoss Radbourn could start 73 games out of a 114 game season, why can’t Anderson? Radbourn was 60-12 that year. We could use a 60 game winner.
