Angels’ bats go silent in 12th consecutive loss

The Angels went to work quickly Monday, intent on reversing their recent fate.

Their second batter of the game, Shohei Ohtani, hit a line drive into and out of the glove of Boston Red Sox second baseman Trevor Story for a single. Mike Trout hit the next pitch from Michael Wacha into left field for a clean line-drive single. It was his first hit after 26 consecutive at-bats without one, the longest drought of Trout’s career.

The Angels’ bats packed it in just as quickly.

Jared Walsh hit a line drive to first baseman Franchy Cordero, who threw to second base to pick off Ohtani, who had wandered too far toward third base. The double play ended the first inning, and the Angels never got another runner past second base en route to a 1-0 loss before an announced crowd of 29,395 at Angel Stadium.

The loss was the Angels’ 12th in a row, the second-longest losing streak in franchise history. It matched the single-season record of consecutive losses, set from Sept. 19 to Oct. 2, 1988.

The '88 Angels began 19-35, finished 2-18, and went 54-34 in between!

Wacha has been mostly terrific for the Red Sox this season. They didn't get shut out by chopped liver.

They've got a ways to go to get up close to the MLB record but it would be nice to see them make a run. Another week of putrid play could get them immortality.
