Rendon continues HR streak, but Angels lose to Dodgers

Though he homered, Anthony Rendon and the Angels had a frustrating night in Friday’s loss to the Dodgers. | Photo by Harry How/ Halos held to 1 hit in 7 innings by Clayton Kershaw The Angels managed just one hit against Clayton Kershaw, not enough to keep up with the Dodgers in a 7-4 loss on Friday night at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. Kershaw held the Angels without a hit until the fifth inning, when Anthony Rendon made the first one count, leading off the frame with a home run down the left field line, cutting the Halos’ deficit to 2-1. It’s the fourth straight game with a home run...

Angels home runs back another Dylan Bundy gem

Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/ 10 strikeouts for Bundy, 4 homers for the offense Four more home runs and another stellar start by Dylan Bundy gave the Angels their first winning streak of the season, 6-0 victors over the A’s on Tuesday night in Anaheim. Anthony Rendon homered for the second straight night, the memory of his hitless road trip fading further into the rearview mirror. Rendon began the homestand in an 0-for-21 skid, but has reached base seven times in 10 plate appearances in two games, including four hits. The big blow for the Halos was a three-run shot in the fourth inning...

Mike Trout hits two homers as Angels win crazy game

Photo by John McCoy/ What a game What. A. Game. If you missed the Angels/Athletics game on Monday night, boy you missed a dandy. Arguably one of the craziest and most exciting games of the season so far. The Angels won, 10-9, ending Oakland’s nine-game winning streak. I don’t even know where to begin, so I think I’ll just start all the way at the beginning. In the bottom half of the first, David Fletcher, Tommy La Stella and Mike Trout all singled. A wild pitch brought in a run to make it 1-0 Angels. Anthony Rendon stepped up to the plate, desperately needing something to go his...

Angels juggle lineup for finale in Texas

Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports Trout’s first time batting 3rd since September 29, 2018 The Angels did a little lineup shuffling after scoring only three runs in the first two games of their series against the Rangers, including no runs in their last 14 innings. Anthony Rendon, just 4-for-36 (.111) though with a team-leading 13 walks, is dropped from third to fifth on Sunday against Lance Lynn. Rendon batted third in 10 of his 11 starts this season, and cleanup once. “Offensively, you look at the numbers, you know they’re going to get better. The guys are better than that,” manager...

The heart of the Angels lineup isn’t beating yet

Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/ Early slump yes, but Saturday marks a quarter of the season over Mike Trout is back and thriving, with four home runs in four games so far on the road trip. In that sense, things seem very normal for the Angels. But so far, those around him in the middle of the lineup simply aren’t producing. It’s still early in that the Angels have only played 14 games, so it’s hard to get a true handle on anything just yet. But we don’t have the luxury of time in 2020; after Saturday, a quarter of the season will be over. Anthony Rendon is hitting just...

A premium battle at the hot corner

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ Two of the best third basemen in baseball this weekend in Anaheim A great treat of this weekend series between the Angels and Astros in Anaheim is the abundance of third base excellence for both teams. And surprisingly, I’m not talking about David Fletcher, who’s hitting .370/.438/.444 in the early going. Anthony Rendon and Alex Bregman are two of the best third basemen in baseball, and both are signed to long-term deals, Bregman with Houston through 2024 and Rendon with the Halos through 2026. By FanGraphs WAR, Bregman ranked second in the majors last season...

Fletcher batted leadoff for the fifth time in five games on Tuesday night, but this time he started at shortstop instead of third base, with Andrelton Simmons placed on the injured list with a left ankle sprain before the game. Fletcher had two singles and two walks on the night, his second time in three games reaching base four...

But they are back in Anaheim, set for their home opener Tuesday night against the Mariners. Anthony Rendon hasn’t played yet, though that could change in this series.
