Angels Look to Snap 5 Game Losing Streak and Salvage Split with Houston

Angels Look to Snap 5 Game Losing Streak and Salvage Split with Houston

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports Janson Junk faces off against Luis Garcia Coming into tonight, the Angels have given up 20 runs in their last two games; split evenly 10-10 each night. Pitching has been a problem throughout their losing streak, and throughout the season, but the effects are noticeably being felt as of late. In the month of September, Angels pitching has a 4.42 ERA in 159.0 IP giving up 86 runs with a 1.45 WHIP. Offense has also been a problem in September where the Halos rank dead last in runs (57), hits (125), RBIs (55), average (.212), and second...

Angels officially eliminated from postseason contention in fifth straight loss

Angels officially eliminated from postseason contention in fifth straight loss

Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/ The Angels put up more of a fight on offense Tuesday night, but still lost 10-5 to the Houston Astros. A night after giving up 10 runs to the Houston Astros, Angels pitching was bullied once again in a 10-5 loss Tuesday night. The Angels have struggled mightily against the Astros and the AL West all season, and their ineptitude in the division reared its ugly head again as the Halos lost their fifth straight game. The loss moves them to 72-79 on the season and officially eliminated them from postseason contention. In what has become a...

Naughton Searching To Pluck Angels Out Of Losing Ways

Naughton Searching To Pluck Angels Out Of Losing Ways

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports The Lefty Gets His Shot Against The AL West Leading Astros For The First Time In His Career Throughout an entire Major League Baseball season ebbs and flows are bound to happen, but for the Angels, they are suffering more ebbs during this four-game losing streak. Last night’s 10-0 loss versus the Astros was the 13th shutout the offense has endured and makes the journey to finish the 2021 season with at least a .500 record a bit of a stretch. The current four-game losing streak is tied for the second-longest losing streak of the season,...

Halos Offense Never Reaches Home Plate against Houston

Halos Offense Never Reaches Home Plate against Houston

Photo by Kevork Djansezian/ Despite a decent night of contact hitting by the Angels lineup, the offense remained scoreless while the Astros capitalized on every opportunity, scoring 10 runs throughout the night. The Halos bats went cold against the Houston Astros on Monday night, and despite several solid attempts to escape the run deficit, the Angels offense never got hot enough to put them on the board and the bullpen faltered in the end, earning them a painful 10-0 loss for the first game in a 4-game series hosted at the Big A. FINAL: Angels 0, Astros 10...

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Jaime Barria And Halos Look To Snap 3-Game Losing Streak Against AL West Rival Astros    Following a lackluster weekend series against the Oakland A’s that saw the Angels strike for only seven runs and 17 hits, the Halos get set to continue their final homestand of the 2021 season by welcoming the AL West leading Houston Astros to southern California.

Angels Rally Late, But Fall To A’s Once Again

Angels Rally Late, But Fall To A’s Once Again

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Their 15th loss in 19 tries against Oakland this year As has been the case in a good chunk of their games against the Athletics this season, the Angels could not get enough going with the bats on Sunday afternoon despite bringing the game into extras with a late rally, falling for the third day in a row to Oakland by a final of 3-2. The Halos squared off against A’s starter Frankie Montas in this one, and he absolutely dominated their shorthanded lineup. Montas finished seven innings with ease, allowing just a lone double to Brandon...

Last Minute Rally falls Short; Heartbreaking Loss leaves Bases Loaded in the 9th

Last Minute Rally falls Short; Heartbreaking Loss leaves Bases Loaded in the 9th

Photo by Brian Rothmuller/Icon Sportswire via Despite a fiery attempt by the offense, the Halos were unable to recover from a rough first inning against the Oakland Athletics. It was a heartbreaking loss on Saturday as the Halos walked away from the night with the bases loaded and a missed opportunity to snag a last-minute victory. Unfortunately, the Halos lineup was slow to the jump, and despite a last-minute offensive fire, the bats fell victim to a rough start in the first inning, cementing the game with a 3-1 loss against the Oakland Athletics. Jose Suarez (3.67...

Angels Look to Rebound Against Oakland

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports Suarez and Halos look to even series against AL West foes After dropping last night’s game to the A’s 4-5, the Angels look to even the three game set today. Lefty Jose Suarez (7-7, 3.59 ERA) is on the bump for the Angels. Suarez has pitched three times against Oakland but only started against them once. In total, he has a 3.27 ERA, going 11.0 IP and allowing 5 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, and 11 Ks. Suarez has pitched better away (3.18 ERA in 51.0 IP) vs at home (4.26 ERA in 31.2 IP) but will look to continue his recent trend of success...

Costly Mistakes Doom Angels in 5-4 Loss to A’s

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports The Halos drop a winnable game in the opener to their final homestand of the year. Fresh off of a road trip that saw them take two of three games from a future playoff team in the White Sox, the Angels had a chance to open their last homestand of the year by playing spoiler against an Oakland Athletics team trying to hold onto playoff aspirations of their own. For a while, it looked like they were going to do exactly that, but a number of different costly mistakes led to them dropping a very winnable game by the final of 5-4. The Halos...

ICYMI: Success in Chi-Town overshadowed by (more) injury news

Photo by Tim Warner/ Another week, another one lands on the IL. You know the story: the Angels play well, someone gets hurt. They start playing poorly then turn it around. Someone gets hurt again and then repeat the cycle. Over, and over, and over. There’s light at the end of the tunnel with money coming off the books and young talent blossoming, but before we get to the offseason of optimism, we have to continue to deal with the season of “what ifs?”. As the Angels sit 10 games back of the AL Wild Card with only 16 games left in the season, they’ve been hit...

Angels crush ChiSox in Cobb’s return to take the series

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ The Halos came out of the South Side of Chicago with a series win against a World Series contender. I don’t even think the Angels saw this one coming. A lineup that has been decimated by injury, unable to score with runners in scoring position and has largely been inconsistent wasn’t supposed to do much against a World Series contender in the Chicago White Sox. Alas, the Halos slayed the giant, beating Chicago 9-3; taking two out of three in the Windy City and taking the season series, five games to two. Despite the offensive explosion, the...
