Monday’s game was a forgetful one

Yeah, nothing really much to tell you with this game. The Angels fell to the Giants, 6-1.

LA actually hopped on the board first. In the second inning, Jared Walsh led off with a double. He’d eventually come in to score the first run of the game on a forceout. And... that was all the offense for the Halos on the day. Over the remaining seven innings they’d only record three hits.

For the game, they were 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position and stranded six runners on base. That will usually win you about three percent of games.

Onto the pitching. Dylan Bundy had yet another rocky start for the Angels. He went 5 23 innings and allowed four runs. The Giants were using him for batting practice, as they hit three home runs off him. Through all of last season, Bundy only allowed five homers. This season, he’s already allowed 12.

It just continues to be a disappointing season for Bundy, who received Cy Young votes last year during his first season in Anaheim. He has yet to win a game and is 0-6 on the year with an ERA of 6.49. After being one of the best pitchers in the American League, he’s quickly turned into one of the worst. Bundy has allowed 21 runs over his last four starts. Hopefully for him, flipping the calendar from May to June will help. I mean at this point, it honestly can’t get much worse.
