Before we begin, I’d like to point out that this sequence happened in the 8th inning.
Zack Cozart grounds out.
Brian Goodwin singles.
Justin Bour hits for David Fletcher.
Justin Bour grounds into a double play.
Tommy La Stella replaces Justin Bour defensively.
Meh, we’re just moving people around, right? This definitely won’t have any consequences at all.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Brad Ausmus.
Matt Harvey remains an enigma. He pitches six innings, giving up two runs. But it really should have been only one run, because Jonathan Lucroy botched a throw. But he was giving up a lot of hard contact, and he was bailed out by his defense. But he was really facing a Triple-A lineup. That same lineup, the Angels bullpen demolished. But I wrote an article about Harvey redeeming himself, so that’s the deciding factor. Harvey is back, folks.
Brett Gardner remains on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and he had some good at-bats, walking twice. Hopefully he gets the call to go back to the Yankees soon.
Other than that, the rest of the enemy were a bunch of nobodies. It was really nice of the Angels to agree to play a Triple-A team.
The catcher duo, Lucroy/Smith, combined for the only two runs the Angels would get. It produced this hilarious gaffe:

That was the only fun the Angels had.
We take this commercial break to bring you Hansel Robles’ rising fastball.

He struck out the side, extremely effectively, and the New York media ate it up.
We don't deserve Hansel Robles' entrance video. pic.twitter.com/oEaUxUfA08— Lindsey Adler (@lindseyadler) April 23, 2019
The commercial break is over. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming of boring Angels baseball.
The Yankees scored in the 12th, because of course they did.
Zack Cozart represented the final out, because of course he did.
**Editor’s note: Sadly, our author’s mind stopped working. He stopped writing and started typing his stream of consciousness.
WOW COZART DIDN’T MAKE AN OUT.
He looks so relieved.
Brian Goodwin, can he do something off Aroldis Chapman?
Yes Goodwin! What a nice piece of hitting!
Ooh, why isn’t Cozart running to third?
Yikes, he’s down. That knee looked horrible. Concussion protocol.
Oh my god. We don’t have any position players. Ausmus, why!
Oh look, it’s Peña.
Going to the 13th. How are we going to line up?
Bourjos at second!
I hope they don’t hit it to him.
Oh my god there goes the ball to...
Are you sure you've never played infield before, Peter? pic.twitter.com/Q7rt6WNuq3— Los Angeles Angels (@Angels) April 23, 2019
We didn’t score in the 13th.
Here we go. Inning number 14.

lets talk about Bourjos backing that up. good fundamentals— Jeremy Frank (@MLBRandomStats) April 23, 2019
This is why you don’t catch fourteen innings, folks.
Okay so now Bourjos is going over to third.
I love how we’re flipping around La Stella like he can play defense.
Damn, that’s a solid single. We’re down.
Luke Bard struck out four batters in one inning because of course he did.
By the way, Lucroy is down to an even run differential (two run HR, missed tag at home, overthrew first).
This game is broken.
Two outs, no one on, and the Yankees put the tying run on base. By the way, it’s Kole Calhoun. Trevor Cahill is on deck.
and Kole Calhoun is the third https://t.co/KqKGIButDG— Jeremy Frank (@MLBRandomStats) April 23, 2019
Cahill struck out. We are sad.
