Angels fall apart in nightmarish 8th inning, lose to Rangers – Press Telegram
ARLINGTON, TX – A combination of failures and serve failures cost Ryan Now and the Angels.
The Angels took the lead in the eighth inning in one run, but in a nightmarish sequence gave up seven runs, losing Tuesday night to the Texas Rangers 10-5.
The crash ruined a night in which Mike Trout was ready to become a hero with three hits, including the lead solo Homer in the seventh.
Now took the mound in the eighth to try to gain an advantage in one run to the nearest Riesel Iglesias, but he failed to remove any of the five batters he faced.
Corey Seeger’s left hand hit the blunder directly inside the right field line. Third baseman Anthony Randon, who played next to second base in the defensive shift, was unable to get to the game, and Seeger was in second place.
The “Angels” were then moved to the other side on the right hand, hitting Adolis Garcia, who hit the right side. Second baseman Luis Rengifa was able to stop it, but instead of just holding the ball, he made an ill-considered shot first. While first baseman Matt Duffy reached out to try to catch the ball, which was too late for the car, Garcia intercepted it and the ball rolled back, allowing Seeger to score.
Duffy was on the field for a few minutes before leaving the game. There was no instant information about the severity or nature of the injury.
Tepera then passed the next two strikers, including four steps to Kol Calhoun to load the base. Now he gave up the single to Nathaniel Lowe, postponing the start, and then his night was over.
Cesar Valdes then found himself in a tight spot for his debut at Angels, and the 37-year-old right-hander allowed two more runs to score in a single hit to the right.
Ellie White later held a single line across the involved inside field, and left-back Defender Brandon Marsh allowed the ball to hit the glove. When the ball rolled against the wall, White circled the base.
It was an ugly finish to the game that started with Reed Detmers struggling in his first outing since he didn’t score.
It lasted just 3-1 / 3 innings, allowing three runs on the Sieger solo Homer and Calhoun two runs on the Homer. Ironically, the homers suffered from the only two lefties in the lineup. The lefties were 1 on 26 against Detmers, who entered the game.
Detmers made more substitutions than before, but this time returned to the fact that he hardly used the field. He threw it just six times for 61 innings. Detmers also threw 61% of fastballs, the highest percentage in any of the 12 starts of his career.
One such fastball was a throw to the belt that Seeger hit over the fence. Detmers left the Calhoun slider, whose Homer equalized 3-3 in the fourth.
The “Angels” scored three wounds, hitting the left “Rangers” Taylor Hearn in the third inning.
Taylor Ward blew up his ninth Homer, setting a new career high. Trout then made a draw and he scored on Homer Randon.
The Hammers were two of the eight swords that the Angels struck against Hearn at an exit speed of at least 100 miles per hour. Against him, they put in the game only 15 goals.
