Corey Kluber was pitching an amazing game. A no-hitter in fact. Then Andrelton Simmons laid down a great bunt and broke up Kuber’s no hit bid in the bottom of the 5th.
Then Shoehei Ohtani came to the plate and this happened.
After Ohtani tied the game, there wasn’t really any offense. For A LONG time. Angels pitching kept the boys in this game throwing zeros for 8 strong innings and notching 15 Ks along the way. In the end, the bullpen and bench were empty and Noe Ramirez was last to take the mound and gain the victory.
That home run from Zack Cozart was his first career walk off, making it all that much sweater.
Walk it off. Zack Cozart wins it with a home run in the 13th for the #Angels. pic.twitter.com/imIJ1WjJAr— Brent Maguire (@bmags94) April 5, 2018
Tyler Skaggs who struggled in the 1st inning and threw 32 pitches, gave up the only 2 runs in the game. When it was all said and done, the Angels had a delicious 3-2 victory.
Mike Scioscia threw 9 pitchers at the Indians in a game that lasted 4 hours and 28 minutes.
Let’s revel in the amazing pitching, another Ohtani home run, a Zack Cozart walk off, and a series win over the Indians in a game that was started by last year’s AL Cy Young winner. Victory. How sweet it is.
