HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!

On the bright side, the Angels can no longer lose by losing a protest.

By making a pitching change in the second inning and having the new guy start off with three consecutive pickoff throws, apparently. I hope it backfires badly.

Then two pitches, then a step off, then another pickoff throw.

BAL Cedric Mullens pops up a ball behind SS.
But BOS is in a shift so instead of a two step drop'n'catch Bogaerts has to chase it on a dead run. Good effort but he bobbles it.
Mullens is fast, and he was already running hard to first, then as he rounds towards second he kicks it into another gear as Bogaerts spills to the grass. Devers converges on Xavier and it dawns...who's on third? "I Don't Know"
Mullens keeps his head up and now it's a race between him and the catcher to the sack. Slides in head first just ahead of the tag.
Infield pop, scored as a triple.

Score 2-1, bott 8, 0 out. Mancini cashes Mullens, 3-1 "There's the insurance run."

Junior Guerra is a journeyman reliever making an emergency fill-in start. This isn't welcomed, but it's expected.

Jared Walsh is such a find for the Angels. If Anthony Rendon plays to projections, and Justin Upton can be just average, the Angels have a contender's offense. Not a contender's pitching staff or defense, but you gotta start somewhere.

OMG way to ruin the game, Gurriel!
1 run game, bottom 9th, 2 out, he doubles off the wall.
On a slow roller to third he takes off and gets tagged out to end the game. It was hit so slowly I'm not sure they get the hitter at first.

This game ran so long that ESPN&TSN; cut away immediately. 9 or 10 relievers were used. Considering the hour, and based on [3]&[4] I doubt Face made it to the end, nor anyone else in ET zone.
Have to wait to see if anyone has video evidence of Dusty Baker slamming the dugout rail padding.

I switched over to Giants-Rangers because I had Alex Wood going for my fantasy team. Picked him up for a $1 salary as an unsigned free agent right before the season started…it’s worked out quite well thus far.

I also got Jared Walsh in like the 27th round of the minor league draft two years ago, so it was a good night all around.
