Shohei Ohtani hits biggest home run of season, Angels win

Photo by Kathryn Riley/ The Angels were down to their final out Trailing by one run with the bases empty, the Angels were one out away from being swept by the Red Sox. Mike Trout singled, extending hope and putting the tying run on first base. Shohei Ohtani stepped up to the plate, representing the go-ahead run. Before we could even think about him potentially doing something magical, he swung at the first pitch and gave the Angels the lead, and ultimately the 6-5 victory. Ohtani crushed his 12th home run of the season, tied for the lead in the majors. There...

Angels offense goes quiet as they lose again

Angels offense goes quiet as they lose again

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Dylan Bundy has his worst start of the season Well, this recap is going to be pretty short. The offense was missing in action on Saturday as they were held scoreless on only four hits, losing to the Red Sox, 9-0. They’ve now lost four games in a row and 10 of their last 13 games. It likely would have been too much to overcome, but the Angels had a number of opportunities to score runs. In addition to their four hits they had seven walks as a team. Unfortunately, they went 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position and left nine...

Ohtani is turning heads

Photo by Bob Levey/ An appreciation of the Angels’ 2-way talent Shohei Ohtani is displaying all of his talents so far this season, tantalizing baseball fans everywhere with his hitting and pitching abilities. The kid gloves are off this season, with Ohtani playing in all 37 Angels games this season through Friday, and standing out at two full-time jobs simultaneously. He homered and doubled in the Angels’ series opener Friday, the former an opposite-field home run over the Green Monster on what appeared to be a flick of Ohtani’s wrist. Monster mashed....

Rendon returns, so the Angels can hopefully look like the Angels again

Photo by Kathryn Riley/ Rendon singled and scored in his first game back Friday The Los Angeles Angels activated third baseman Anthony Rendon off the injured list on Friday, allowing their offense to look more like themselves again. That hasn’t been the case more often that not in the early going, with Rendon missing a total of 20 games on his two injured list stints, first with a strained left groin and the latest malady after fouling a ball off his left knee. The results weren’t immediate, as the Angels managed only three runs in a 4-3 loss to the Red Sox, thanks...

Series preview: Angels look to bounce back in Boston

Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports They’re in last place in the AL West After losing two of three in Houston, the Angel will look to get back in the win column this weekend in Boston. They’ll enter the three-game series where they’re in last place, as the Red Sox are currently in first place and have one of the best records in all of baseball. Friday: Nick Pivetta (5-0, 3.19 ERA) vs. Griffin Canning (3-2, 5.19 ERA) After a very rough start to his season, Griffin Canning has been excellent for the Angels over his last two starts. He’s allowed only one run in seven...

Joe Maddon is optimistic Angels pitching will improve

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Their ERA is the worst in baseball There’s no question that when healthy, the Angels have one of the top offenses in all of baseball. On paper, their pitching staff is by no means the best, but it’s definitely solid. Safe to say, through the first month of the season, the pitching staff for the Angels has been their downfall. LA is now sitting at 16-20 on the season. After a hot start start to the season, they just can’t pull together any sort of winning stretch. Only three teams in the American League have a worse record than they...
