Angels bats go silent, fall to Rangers

It all but ends the season

It’s not over until it’s over, but the Angels will need a miracle to make the postseason. Needing to win essentially every remaining game, the Halos fell to the Rangers 7-2 on Sunday afternoon.

Texas took the lead in the top of the first, and the rest was history. The Rangers hit a total of five home runs, all of which were solo shots.

Julio Teheran got the start and didn’t last long. He pitched one inning, allowing three runs on two hits. He also issued two walks. Patrick Sandoval entered the game in the third inning and was able to eat innings for the Angels. He threw 4 13 innings, allowing only one run while striking out seven. He was really the only bright spot for them on the day.

The Angels are now 4.5 games out of a playoff spot with six games left.
