Angels’ Phillips sidelined, so Trout leads off for first time since 2013

Angels’ Phillips sidelined, so Trout leads off for first time since 2013

Brandon Phillips was not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Texas Rangers, triggering a dramatic change at the top of the Angels' batting order. Cliff Pennington took over for Phillips at second base, but that was to be expected. What was different?

The new era begins with a “Smart Scioscia”

We have the vaunted Trout-Upton-Pujols order we wanted in the lineup. We’re here, folks. Less than 4 hours to gametime: Slightly different look to the lineup today!Game Preview: https://t.co/uZGgwzLsut pic.twitter.com/SdjQphHuQ1— Angels (@Angels) September 1, 2017 I never knew how much we needed Justin Upton batting 3rd until he was actually there. It’s amazing. Brandon Phillips also slots in at leadoff, and our newfound hero Cliff Pennington is still playing! Win it all. Please.

In a shocking moment of destiny, the Angels power to a series sweep on the power of 2 2-run homers by Pujols, and a Grand Slam by...Cliff Pennington??? Here is what happens when Gameday has a seizure: Yeah. We couldn't believe it in real time, either. Neither could Oakland manager Bob Melvin, who insisted on a replay. I've watched it numerous tomes, too. I still blink when the ball hits the top of the wall. Not because I don't know for sure if it clears the wall. No, because I don't know for sure if it really was the same at-bat as when Cliff Pennington was swinging. But...
