Angels "Closer" Jordan Walden Crushes Angels, Rays Sweep


Jordan Walden... You Suck!

Final Score in Saint Petersburg: Angels 3, Rays 4.

Jordan Walden serves up a walkoff 2-Run homerun to snatch defeat form the jaws of victory. Up by one run with one out and nobody on in the bottom of the 9th, Mike Scioscia pressed all the right buttons in handing the ball to closer Jordan Walden to get two outs and avoid the sweep. Two batters later, the game was over alright.

The Angels have lost four straight, are 6-13 on the year and have seen their StubHub resale ticket prices fall almost 30% since this weekend. looks like the A-Ball affiliate 66ers will be giving out plenty of Rally Monkey Beanies after Tuesday's promotional giveaway non-melee against the Minnesota Twins.

  • Mark Trumbo went 2-4 with a homerun and 2 rbi's
  • Jerome Williams did his job and pitched a good game
  • Scott Downs was allowed to face more than one batter and was effective
  • Albert Pujols got a hit that he tried to stretch into a double while jogging down the first base line
  • Walden... See Above
So close... yet so far.
