Angels 4, Astros 3

It seemed the Angels were trying to keep the Astros from the postseason by never letting them get there. I mean, when Game 1 of the ALDS rolls around and the Astros are still at Angel Stadium playing the game that originated on September 26, 2019, what is anyone going to do about it?

Brad Ausmus did his best, making pitching change after pitching change, leading to this amazing box score:

Trevor Cahill, Opening Day Starter, now has four wins on the year. What a season.

Andrelton Simmons finally ended it. the Angels made 35 outs and garnered 7 hits. Brian Goodwin and Jaime Barria were injured in the effort. The Angels fell in the tank race.

A win in a war of attrition is never truly just a win.
