This came very close to being an object lesson on the team's gross inability to properly understand offensive prowess, what with Mike Napoli getting the only run on a solo blast off starter Jered Weaver in the seventh. It would have been awesome, but no, baseball has a way of interfering with clean narratives in a way that just annoys everyone. In this case, it turned out to be a two-run, no-outs blast from Mark Trumbo that was the difference.
The Angels are done for the season, give or take a game. If you lose a four-game set at home to your chief rival, you get what you deserve.
(Parenthetical note: I see that after a Halos Heaven beatdown of Lyle Spencer, MLB.com has seen fit to send someone named David Ely to handle the late Angels recap. Meh.)
