They say that a win is always a win, but bejeezes was this one ugly game.
Seven combined errors.
Four combined GIDPs.
Three wild pitches.
Awful bullpen work all around.
And yet somehow the Angels won by six. I'll take it, but, yeesh!
Really, the only reason the Angels won this game was because the Nats did everything worse than the Angels. The Halos fielded poorly (2 errors), but the Nats were even poorer (5 errors). The Angels hit into a rally-killing bases loaded GIDP early in the game, but the Nationals hit into a soul-crushing GIDP late in the game (and two more before that, for good measure). All four Angel relievers looked shaky, but ultimately only gave up one run. Washington's relievers though were all categorically awful with of the three relievers allowing at least two runs.
Bad, bad, bad all around. I'm just glad that the Angels came out on top for a change since most every bizarre game they've been involved in this season (and there have been several) always end with the Halos hanging their heads.
