The Los Angeles Angels, once depicted as one of the best teams in the American League, to then fall into one of the toughest losing streaks in recent times, will be looking to score yet another win in their series against divisional rivals Seattle in game two of their head to head matchup. After securing the first win in Mariners turf, the Angels, who are desperately looking to get a winning culture going again in their clubhouse will be sending RHP Michael Lorenzen who will be looking not only to extend the Angels’ lead in the series to two but also take his season record to seven wins for the year. For the Mariners on the other hand it will be LHP Robbie Ray who will be looking to hand over another loss for an Angels team that knows a thing or two, or plenty about losing, especially as of recently.
There once was a time where talking about Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and company in the LA Angels usually came followed by words of how good and exciting this team was, and how this was definitely turning out to be their year. For a while the AL West felt like it was made for Los Angeles to win without any real regards as to what the Astros, Rangers, Mariners and A’s had to say about it. And then the cataclysm occurred.
After losing 18 of their last 20 games, including a horrific 14-game losing streak, the Angels, who along the way got rid of manager Joe Maddon, the Angels went from being one of the hottest stories in the league, to becoming one of the saddest and most harrowing tales in the American League. Even with players like Mike Trout and Ohtani, this team could not find a way to turn their luck around, but after beating their divisional rivals Seattle yesterday, the hopes of mounting a comeback riding on the tails of beating Seattle once again have started to take a whole new meaning for this team. They have the hitting power, they have the fielding efforts and their pitching rotation and bullpen have continued to manage to try and put on respectable outings, which is why it wouldn’t be so farfetched to see the Angels scoring yet another win today.
For the Mariners on the other hand, they will be looking to try and revert yesterday’s loss especially considering that the difference between them and LA in the AL West divisional standings stands at only 1.5 games. A win here, with a strong outing from Robbie Ray, a pitcher that could definitely put on a clinic against LA could see them shorten that distance to just half a game from taking away the third place in the division, leading to a more important showdown in the next three games of the series, Saturday’s doubleheader and Sunday’s final game.
Still, the key will be to be able to hold back Trout and company on the plate if they wish to win, if not, LA will be smiling once again, something they haven’t done in quite some time.
