On the hottest day of the year for the Angels, Dylan Bundy finally cooled off in Tuesday afternoon’s 8-2 loss to the Giants at Angel Stadium.

Gametime temperature at Angel Stadium was 99 degrees for this one, six degrees hotter than a pair of weekend games against the Dodgers. But the Giants bats were hotter in this one.

Bundy allowed four runs, including two home runs on Tuesday to the Giants, which nearly matched the totals (five runs, two homers) from his first four starts. He lasted just four innings, after pitching at least six innings in his first four times out.

Bundy also walked four, though one was intentional, after three total walks in his first four starts.

Mike Yastrzemski was in the middle of everything again for the Giants. He homered to lead off the game, then walked twice against Bundy. He’s hitting .311/.436/.656 this season.

But he also made a fantastic diving catch in right field in the second inning that robbed David Fletcher of a hit and the Angels of two runs.

Notes

  • Jaime Barria, called up earlier Tuesday for bullpen help, gave the Angels 4⅓ innings of long relief. It was a scoreless outing until three doubles in a row with two outs in the ninth inning gave San Francisco two extra runs.
  • Giants reliever Shaun Anderson, up seven runs in the ninth inning, threw two balls near Mike Trout’s head. Umpires conferred briefly, but there were no ejections. “That’s just a young man who’s not ready to be here,” manager Joe Maddon said of Anderson. “There was nothing malicious about it.”
  • David Fletcher went 0-for-4, snapping his hit streak at 16 games.
  • For the first time in nine days, Anthony Rendon did not have an extra-base hit, though he did single twice in four at-bats.
  • The Angels finished the homestand 3-5.
