He killed us last week in Anaheim in a game where the four Oriole runs were all on his two home runs off of Matt Shoemaker and he killed us again today in Baltimore with a two-run shot off of Halo Starter Garrett Richards as the O-Birds never looked back in a 4-3 win. The three Angels runs were of the too little too late variety and were gifted with walks up the wazoo.
Adam Jones had four home runs in 41 career games vs. #Angels leading up to June 10, 2013. Since that day, he's had six homers in eight games— Danny Farris (@StandardDanny) July 30, 2014
Meanwhile on the reality front, Mike Trout is in a slump and his batting average is now below .300 - the opposition has been pounding him with high and inside heat that he is just not adjusting to. Can he bounce back?
Overall the Angels look flat, the starting pitching looks gassed and now that the bullpen has been fixed to a stellar level it is like the time you put the great new tires on grandpa's old jalopy. Putt Putt Putt Putt, hey Oakland lost we are not losing too much ground, pa-chugga-chugga.
