Mike Trout-Bryce Harper duel ends in painful loss for Angels

Mike Trout-Bryce Harper duel ends in painful loss for Angels

ANAHEIM — The Angels lost Cameron Maybin to an injury. They lost the Mike Trout-Bryce Harper duel. And they lost the game. It was a bad Tuesday night. The Angels dropped a 4-3 decision to the Washington Nationals, with Harper doing much of the damage with a homer among his four hits. Trout also homered, […]

Bryce Harper hit a home run, then Mike Trout one-upped him in the same inning

Bryce Harper hit a home run, then Mike Trout one-upped him in the same inning

The Angels may need another shipment of baseballs pretty soon. Entering tonight’s game in Anaheim, Super phenom Bryce Harper and super-mega-ultra-the next-Babe-Ruth-phenom Mike Trout had only matched up once before in their careers, a three-game set in April of 2014. During that series, most of the attention was on Albert Pujols, who hit his 500th career homer into the Red Porch in near dead-center field in the second game of the series. Harper wasn’t particularly impressive and Mike Trout, who went 5 for 14 in the series, on the way to the AL MVP that season, was somewhat overshadowed...

Washington Nationals 4-3 over Los Angeles Angels: Bryce Harper 4 for 4, HR in series opener in Anaheim...

Edwin Jackson put together a solid seven innings in his 2017 debut with the Nationals, who hit three home runs in their 4-2 win over the Angeles. Washington and Anaheim traded home runs with four blasts, two by each team over the first six innings tonight. It was tied at 2-2 in the eighth inning in Angel Stadium when Bryce Harper lined a triple to right field to lead off the inning (4 for 4) before scoring on a Ryan Zimmerman single that put the Nationals up 4-2 in what ended up a 4-3 win. Edwin Jackson, called up this afternoon after a solid stint at Triple-A in the Nationals’ system,...

Bryce Harper versus Mike Trout: Schedule makers let everyone down

One of the best rivalries in baseball is not one build from hate. The Bryce Harper versus Mike Trout fight is far less brutal than Connor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather or an other ongoing sports feud. Harper and Trout are only rivals because of their similarities. Both of these men came up to the big […] The post Bryce Harper versus Mike Trout: Schedule makers let everyone down appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Game 93 WPA HOT TAKE: “New” pitching debut triumphant! Nats drop Halos 4-3.

Game 93 WPA HOT TAKE: “New” pitching debut triumphant! Nats drop Halos 4-3.

Edwin Jackson puts up a quality start in his triumphant return, while the new bullpen pieces are effective, and Bam Bam hits all the baseballs. Image courtesy Fangraphs. (What do these graphs and percentages mean?) I remember being angry at him a lot, but now I can’t remember why: Edwin Jackson (+11.0%) puts up 7 innings of two-run ball with 3 walks and a K. Phenom: Bryce Harper (+35.5%) is 4-4 with a first-inning solo shot for the early lead (+10.8%) and an ayeth-inning triple to set up another go-ahead run (+22.2%). Comeback: Anthony Rendon (+17.2%) hits a game-tying...

Wire Taps: Nationals’ new relievers debut, Nats hit homers as usual, beat Angels, 4-3

Wire Taps: Nationals’ new relievers debut, Nats hit homers as usual, beat Angels, 4-3

Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle handled the eighth and ninth innings, respectively, and Bryce Harper homered in a 4 for 4 series opener against the Angels... If Bryce Harper didn’t get thrown out at second in the third, his eighth inning triple would have given him the cycle in the series opener against the LA Angels. A 4 for 4 night is pretty good though, cycle or not. Harper homered in his first at bat, then tripled, and scored the go-ahead run in the eighth. Adam Lind’s home run in the ninth ended up being the winning run in the Nats’ 4-3 victory. Oh, and the Nationals’ new...

Mini Series Preview: Nationals @ Angels (Two for the Show)

The Nationals and some dude named Harper are in town for a quickie 2-game set Three games back in the wildcard race and facing the team with the best record in the NL. The Angels shouldn’t win either game which means they might. Right? #tod The last time the Angels faced the Nationals was back in 2014 when the Angels took 2 out of 3 games in Washington. Mike Trout was 5 for 14 and Bryce Harper was 1 for 11 with 3 Ks. Danny Espinosa’s former team (wait - which one?) has a lot of thump with 5 guys in double digit home runs and 3 hovering around the 20 mark. Could be a good series for...
