The story of this game should be how the Angels are barely clinging to life after sneaking out of Houston with a late-inning rally to avoid a sweep. But you and I know we can't focus on that, not after the shenanigans Bo Porter and the umpires pulled.
If you missed it, enjoy watching a MLB manager and umpiring crew take a dump over the very basic rule than any pitcher entering a game must face at least one batter before being replaced.
Thanks to the nearly empty stadium, if you listen real close you can hear Scioscia yell "embarrassment" at the umpires. It is mind-blowing how this display of incompetency came to pass.
All I can say is thank goodness the Angels ended up winning and didn't need to go through with the protest to the league. I say that both for the sake of MLB's integrity but also having to replay the Angels getting swept by the Astros twice would've probably killed me.
Alas, they didn't thanks to Mark Trumbo hitting an accidental game-tying double. The season maintains its almost undetectable pulse for another few days.no comments
