Balanced attack, pitching leads Angels over Mariners

Is it too early to put César Puello in the Hall of Fame?

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Seattle Mariners Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

Angels 6, Mariners 3

There were three home runs. There were three relief aces. I decided to be very generous and include Cam Bedrosian as a relief ace.

No, César Puello didn’t homer. Not like the other two games. But he wasn’t expected to. Instead, he was one of four Angels with a multi-hit game. I think he’s a Hall of Famer. The gamethread agreed:

As for the rest of the plebeians, Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, and Kole Calhoun went deep. Andrew Heaney pitched 6 innings, striking out 10, allowing just 3 runs. Cam Bedrosian, Ty Buttrey, and Hansel Robles each pitched scoreless innings.
