The Angels picked up just five hits this afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field, which in turn made them Guaranteed to Lose. The Angels’ pitching staff surrendered five runs in 8 innings, with Jaime Barria giving up two runs in 4.1 innings. The Angels used seven pitchers in total, delaying the inevitable.
Sox starter Dylan Cease came into the game with a 6.75 ERA across 11 starts, and despite allowing 9 baserunners and getting 10 outs, only allowed one run. Matt Osich followed and picked up another 8 outs and giving up 0 runs. Brian Goodwin, Shohei Ohtani, Albert Pujols, and Kevan Smith all left on 3+ runners on base, and the Angels lose.
