Boxscore Breakdown #120: Kole to the rescue – Angels 5, Rangers 4

Boxscore Breakdown #117: Rubbed the wrong way – Red Sox 3, Angels 1

This is really starting to get old. As per usual, the Angels had plenty of opportunities to score runs, but as per usual, they didn’t cash them in. Rubby De La Rosa looked terrific as a result, when he probably should’ve been knocked out of the game early. It is all starting to add up to legitimate concern growing around an Angels team that looked like the best team in baseball...

Boxscore Breakdown #115: Feels like old times – Red Sox 4, Angels 2

Remember back in the beginning of the year, and really the two years before that as well, when the Angels seemingly couldn’t get a hit with runners on base to save their collective life? It is starting to feel like that again. This offense has too much talent to keep performing so poorly, but that doesn’t make it any easier to suffer through these last few weeks of offensive...

Boxscore Breakdown #112: Dropping the ball – Dodgers 5, Angels 4

This is a simple game. You throw the ball. You hit the ball. You catch the ball. Well, the Angels certainly hit the ball. They didn’t do so great with throwing the ball. They did an even worse job of catching the ball. And by “they” I am mostly referring to Chris Iannetta and David Freese. It isn’t often that you get a chance to face Clayton Kershaw and come out the victor...

How the Angels lost (8/5): Error by Freese scores winning run for Dodgers

How the Angels lost: In the bottom of the ninth with runners on the corners and two outs, the Angels played the infield severely in, anticipating a bunt or a grounder from pinch-hitter Andre Ethier. He chopped at Kevin Jepsen's curveball, dribbling it to David Freese at third base. Freese threw down to Chris Iannetta to get the force at the plate and an attempt to send the...

Boxscore Breakdown #106: You’re not paying attention – Orioles 4, Angels 3

Let’s be honest. You’re not going to read this. You’re not paying attention at all. The trade deadline is happening and stuff is actually going down this year. Why would you waste time to read a game recap? What’s wrong with you? Run Expectancy Rundown Chris Iannetta had the big hit, well, it had to be big since there were only four hits in the game.

Boxscore Breakdown #100: As good as a hit – Angels 3, Orioles 2

Remember when you were a kid playing Little League and your coach would tell you that a walk was as good as a hit? And remember how you shrugged that off and swung anyway because hitting the ball was more fun? Yeah, you shouldn’t have done that. Chris Iannetta didn’t do that. Kole Calhoun didn’t do that and the net result was a win for the Angels that required no actual use...
