Angels Blast Rangers 7-2

Can the Angels win a game again? I don’t know, but my gut says maybe. Well, what is the pitching matchup? Canning vs Lorenzen. We should have kept Lorenzen. Sigh… Oh well, how did Canning do? He went 4 and a third innings, giving up 2 runs on 7 hits, striking out 3 and walking 2. Yeesh. And he left with the bases loaded. Shaking my head, Griffin Canning of the Angels.

At least Crouse came in and stranded all 3 runners. The bullpen in general was clutch, and salvaged a short start by Canning into something that was good enough to win the game. In the end, that is why they are there.

How about the offense? The hitters hit the ball with the bat goodly. Neto and Moniak especially did a good job as both hit home runs, and were responsible for 5/8 hits and all 6 RBI. Not bad for your 8 and 9 hitters. (Unlike Rendon, who went 0-5 with 3K)

Highlighted Recap

The Angels struck first, well, the Rangers messed up first really, as a single AND an error gave the Angels the lead.

1-0 Angels

What wasn’t an error was a 3 run BOMB by M-I-C-K-E-Y

4-0 Angels

And in the 3rd, Neto doubled in a run… and then got thrown out because he tried to go to 3rd, while there was someone still at 3rd…

5-0 Angels

Too bad Canning gave up a home run of his own in the 5th.

5-2 Angels

Canning out, Crouse in, Bases Loaded, and…

Angels still up 5-2

The 7th also had a jam, and the bases were loaded again for the Rangers…

And the Angels still lead 5-2

Still, only a 3 run lead seems scary. What if it were… bigger?

7-2 Angels

Estevez came in anyway, and the Angels won. NOT SWEPT!

Upcoming

Need not fear, the All Star Break is nearly here! Just 4 games vs the Mariners left and then we can rest for a bit. Good? Good. Oh that is when the draft is huh? Well, we have THAT to look forward to at least.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner? Canning should have righted the ship for the win, but alas, Angels pitchers have trouble making it past the 5th inning. Hell, they have trouble getting to the 5th inning.

Strickland did not want to walk away from Erica after that postgame interview. Reason behind his name, Hunter.
