Only one run on the night

After the offense heated up over the last week, they went cold in Texas on Tuesday night as they fell to the Rangers, 7-1.

The lone run from the Halos came in the fifth inning on a solo home run from Jared Walsh. Aside from that, they couldn’t get anything going at the plate. They were 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position and stranded eight runners on base. The Angels had multiple runners on base a few times throughout the night, but they just simply couldn’t capitalize when needed.

It was a rough outing for Andrew Heaney, who allowed five runs to score in his five innings of work. An error from Matt Thaiss turned to be a huge in the fourth, as he was playing his first professional game at second base. A Ronald Guzmán grounder got past him for two runs.

Texas scored two more runs in the fifth, another run in the sixth and another run in the seventh. Overall, the Angels finished with only six hits on the night.

  • Justin Upton left tonight’s game with a left hand contusion. X-rays were negative for fracture and he is considered day to day.
