Game 1 (10:05)

(QS=2)Mike Wright (2-3) 5.20 (1.35/.279), 27/11 (4HR)


(QS=4)Hector Santiago (3-2) 3.42 (1.16/.230), 39/16 (7HR)

Mike Wright: Wright has been up and down so far this season much like someone else in our rotation is normally all the time. Wright has, quite literally, alternated every start between good and bad with the one solid relief appearance thrown in. If this pattern continues, Wright will pitch poorly in this start and his 2016 away numbers seem to strengthen those chances. Wright threw seven solid innings against Detroit in his last start allowing only two runs on three hits and three walks. He struck out six and allowed one home run. The start before that against Oakland, he allowed five runs on 10 hits and two walks in five innings. His one start against the Angels was part of the impressive few games he threw when he made his ML debut, but has not pitched at Angels Stadium.

Hector Santiago: Santiago has been pretty good for the Angels this season and rebounded from a three start rough patch with eight scoreless innings of two hit ball against Seattle in his last start. The Angels have won six of eight games Santiago has started. He has also pitched well in a season's worth of innings at Angels Stadium despite the 2016 numbers which were inflated by a bad start during his rough patch mentioned earlier. The other two were quality starts. Santiago has also done well against the Orioles for his career, so we may have some trouble with him in this one.

The Orioles once again got it handed to them by the M's as they drop the series and have now lost three of four heading back out on the road against the Angels who have been playing much better as of late while the Orioles may be coming back to earth a bit having lost three of four now. We will play three against the Angels and then an off day for the second Monday in a row. We then face the struggling Astros for three, the surging Indians for three and then returning to Baltimore to begin another home stand with four against Boston. We then see the Yankees for three and KC for three.

Wright is locked in a pattern so far this season that doesn't bode well for this start and Santiago has pitched very well for the Angels overall. He also pitches well in his home ballpark and has been very successful against the Orioles. The Angels are red hot and the Orioles seem to be cooling off which was inevitable.

With the Orioles loss and Boston win, there is once again a tie for first place. Everyone except the Orioles has won their last game at least.

I'm ready for some baseball. I've prepped with some NHL hockey and beers. This is only the 3rd time in 10 days I've gotten to watch a game...I was out of town for the Detroit series and we've had two day games while I was at work.

Let's play ball!

We 2nd shifters love west coast baseball!

I am fortunate to be able to rearrange my work schedule enough to align it with east coast start times. But consequently the West Coast games screw up my biorhythms![emoji14]

BTW, Steve Pearce just crushed a ball in the Tampa Detroit game.

Back in the mid 90's the Big A had young women dressed in hot pants and tight t-shirts roaming the stands doing various things like giving out t-shirts and spritzing overheated fans with water. I am sure they got paid half of what the beer venders got, and suffered a litany of indignities from drunken fans.
