There was going to be a recap, and then Brad Ausmus happened.
The Angels failed to challenge a play at the plate in which the Twins catcher may have been blocking the plate. Shohei Ohtani was the man gunned down. It was his second out on the bases.
Down 1 in the ninth, with one out and a man on first, for some reason Justin Bour stepped up to the plate instead of the scheduled hitter, David Fletcher. Bour struck out.
Update: Billy Eppler literally pulled a Moneyball.
The Angels have optioned Justin Bour to Triple-A Salt Lake, Angels GM Billy Eppler said. No corresponding move tonight.— Fabian Ardaya (@FabianArdaya) May 15, 2019
