Jared Walsh batting around, Mike Trout is back in line with two homers while the Los Angeles Angels beat the New York Mets.
ANAHEIM, Calif. – Not many teams can claim to have no strikers, set a lost record, fire a manager and cause a player to hit within five weeks.
Well, the Angels of Los Angeles can.
Jared Walsh continued one of the worst episodes in commercial history by battling the fight as the Halos thrashed 11-6 in the New York Mets on Saturday night. It was the ninth round in franchise history and the first since Shohei Ohtani in 2019.
Walsh went 4-for-5 and drove three times. He finished the round with two throws in the eighth inning after Mets midfielder Khalil Lee failed to throw down.
“I thought a little bit, but I just wanted to put the bar on the ball,” said Walsh about coming to the eighth plate. “I communicate very well, so I felt like if I found something in the dish, I could have a chance to drive.”
Angels head coach Phil Nevin said as soon as he saw Lee trying to jump the ball, he knew Walsh had finished around.
“I screamed” at the dove, “Nevin said. I’ve just seen one. “
It was the seventh round in Angel Stadium history as well as the seventh round by the Angel player. Mike Trout was the most recent athlete who played a stint at The Big A, in 2013.
Trout was the biggest story in the game until the Walsh era. Trout was back on the line and had his 23-game home run.
“It’s good to see when they start to shake like that. We saw it last year. As soon as it runs, it’s fun to watch,” said Trout, who won three times and drove three times.
Trout, who missed three games due to groin stiffness on the right, contributed to the five-hitting strike for Angelo. This is the second time that they have entered the fray five times this season.
Walsh, who also set up a water tank to prevent the Mets’ first hit, had one in the third inning, doubling in the fifth and a single inning in the seventh.
This is the third round of major games this season. The last was Mets’ Eduardo Escobar Monday in San Diego.
The Angels seem to have a lot of power after beating the Reid Detmers against the Tampa Bay Rays on May 10, but on Saturday they only won an eighth time in the last 29 games.
This was their second win in three games after history, losing 14 games. Nevin was 2-3 as manager Joe Maddon was sacked Tuesday.
Ohtani and Andrew Velazquez also returned home. It is the third time this year and the 17th from 2018 that Trout and Ohtani will enter the same game.
That was enough for Michael Lorenzen (6-3), who allowed one run in six games and four hits in 6 ⅓ innings.
Mets founder Carlos Carrasco (7-2) lost for the first time since April 27. The right-hander conceded nine hits in nine innings and seven innings.
Pete Alonso shot himself in the eighth and Lee had a three-way drive for his first homer in the ninth Mets, who went 4-5 on their California tour.
Trout extended Angels’ lead to 3-0 in the third inning with a private shot. He then attached a double-speed rocket to the center of the sixth field.
He has 6-to-8 and three home trips following the worst 0-to-26 drought.
Ohtani also went 3-for-4 and ran three times to increase his batting to eight games. This also included a double-to-right explosion right in the fifth inning which resulted in a 5-0 lead.
“I just left the stadium in the middle,” Carrasco said of the homers for Trout and Ohtani. “You have to revolt. I tried to do this and I was beaten.”
Velazquez’s sixth straight shot was the second time in the last three games he has played.
The Mets entered the game leading the winners with .295 averages and runners with goals, but they were 3-for-14 and eight runners were missing.
On Walsh’s third-inning single, Mets right-back Jeff McNeil hurriedly threw the ball and threw it home for Ohtani to get off the plate to finish the inning. Captor Tomas Nido made the mark in a very short time.
It was Angelo’s first game in their Nike MLB City Connect jersey. Another type of uniform combines the red carvings of the permit and shakes the head off the south coast of California with a wave pattern.
Mets: CF Starling Marte (quad tightness) did some work before trying to hit but missed his third straight game. … RHP Colin Holderman was placed on a series of injuries, repeated until Wednesday, with a blow to his right shoulder. RHP Jake Reed was remembered from Triple-A Syracuse.
Angels: INF Luis Rengifo came out on top in the men’s list. He suffered in his first game back with two errors.
Mets: RHP Taijuan Walker (3-2, 3.28 ERA) with a 2-0 and 0.56 ERA start against Angels at The Big A.
Angels: LHP Patrick Sandoval (3-1, 2.81 ERA) has conceded three or fewer times but one of his first nine.
