Surprise! Jared Walsh the hero!

The bullpen blows it again, but the Angels don’t like narratives anyway, decide to win for some reason.

Angels 3, Rangers 2

It was Hansel Robles’ turn tonight.

I’m talking, of course, about the spin-o-rama that the Angels bullpen has decided to play all of a sudden. Each day, before the game starts, they sit in a circle and spin a spinner, and towards whomever the arrow points is going to blow the game that night.

Futility.

You can still read the above, but it doesn’t apply that much. Because we win! Woohoo!

Winning cures everything!

Jared Walsh!

Gets the ice bath!

We can forget that Mike Trout went 0-4 with some terrible ABs.

We can forget that we couldn’t score with the bases loaded and no one out.

Because woohoo! Jared Walsh! Walking off with the blooper that should’ve been caught!

Kole Calhoun! 3 hits and a walk! Tied the game in the 9th!

Luis Rengifo! Running through a stop sign at third in the 9th because he saw that Zack Cozart was on deck!

Tyler Skaggs! 5.2 scoreless! Rebuffed the narrative that he can’t pitch!

We love BBB! Pinch hit Walsh instead of Jonathan Lucroy and it somehow worked! We love gutting the lineup of position players! Brought in Cam Bedrosian in a one run game and it somehow worked! We love Bedrosian in high leverage! Screw the odds anyway!
