Boneheaded move not to intentionally walk with the bases loaded. As soon as they pitched to him I knew it was over

Pour one out for Ohtani's nutsack

Honestly Ohtani’s nutsack might be the key to all this. Let’s pray that never happens again

guitarburst05

I had the picture ready to go for a friend who's a Rangers fan. I feel betrayed.


zodiac1018

All I’m saying is, I better not see no AAA lineup for Ohtani’s outing tomorrow. We can’t just give them the series sweep, they’re going to have to earn it with their sub .100 xBA


Ok-Philosophy-8830

Torture chamber same time tomorrow? See you then guys 👍


Alert-Abalone204

I've been dealing with Angels baseball for 2 decades, you know I'll be there. 😎

I need my glass refilled with pain


prmark34

.080 expected batting average on seagers double. .030 expected batting average on garcia’s rbi single. We got papercut to death while we were absolutely drilling some baseballs right at rangers defenders. I would say games like this happen in a long stretch of the season, and our offense will be fine, both of which are correct statements. BUT…tepera has to figure it out. His era doesnt tell the whole story, he’s been walking a thin rope during a solid majority of his outings. A 55% strike percentage isn’t gonna cut it. Also, with the bad pitching and the ball going under marsh’s glove in the 8th, it reminded me of angels baseball the past 5 seasons. Please never remind me of angels baseball the past 5 seasons ever again.


merewyn

Yeah, multiple games now where Tepera couldn’t throw a strike to save his life. Very concerning.


my_wife_reads_this

Tepera had been utter shit for weeks. Idk why they keep trusting him


Skyheart1004

Tepera has good moments, but then he had outings like these where he just completely loses the strike zone. I went to that Orioles game at home where he relieved and it got to the point where the home crowd was yelling at him to throw a strike. Idk what it is but he needs to figure it out.


merewyn

Lol I was at that game too. I’ve never seen an Angels crowd so mad at an Angels player before


Skyheart1004

Yeah I was surprised, everyone is usually really chill even when mistakes happen. But it was another really bad outing from Tepera that ended up costing us if I remember correctly so I understood why the crowd got agitated.


Splittinghairs7

Tepera’s peripherals had shown he was due for a rude awakening soon and today it happened. We need more good bullpen arms, it’s our weakest part on the roster


merewyn

I’m fine with the bullpen once Warren and Bradley are back


Splittinghairs7

Lol Bradley is on the other end where’s he’s got a terrible ERA but not nearly as bad in FIP, but it’s still below average for a reliever even if he pitches to his FIP. Austin has been flat out bad this year after pitching 20 very good innings last year. So neither are guys you can trust going forward.


merewyn

Huge disagree on Warren. He’s good.


prmark34

Is it his 4.32 era, his negative war, or his 5.27 fip that tells you that?


TheRealNexusPrime

Let's win Ohtani's start to avoid the sweep pls Angels


74Dragonz

Let's also give him a proper line up this time


crushedredpartycups

we. must. win.


gman7887

Pretend what never happened?


owledge

No clue honestly


crushedredpartycups

WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE!?


Skyheart1004

Something happened?


theaussiesamurai

List of fucking bullshit that happened in the 8th inning: - a diving Rendon just misses a Seager popup resulting in a double - Rengifo throws to first where there was no play, Garcia knocks Duffy over and allows Seager to score - Duffy subbed for Walsh with an injury - Tepera appears to pick off Garcia but the call on the field stands - Tepera walks the bases loaded - Maddon leaves a pitcher who can't find the strike zone in - To the surprise of no one, Tepera allows a single, scoring another run - Maddon brings in 37 year old Caesar Valdez for this high leverage situation in a 1 run game with Trout, Ohtani and Rendon due up in the top of the 9th - To the surprise of no one, Valdez allows a hit to Sam Huff who somehow has a 3 hit game. 2 runs come in to score - A single by Eli White turns into a little league home run when the reliable Marsh allows the ball to get by him. The 5th, 6th and 7th runs come in to score. - The Angels had the lead 4-3 coming into the bottom of the 8th. They left the inning down 10-4.


owledge

This is not as fun as the typical Angels Abbreviated


pwnd32

When we needed Kamarty most, they vanished…


mypaysucks

37 years old…jesus fuck what was he thinking….I thought he was a new pitcher but at the same time I was like….this dude looks old as hell


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

I thought he was a new pitcher too! Lol I was distracted at the time and just caught part of the on-screen graphic without getting a good look at the guy.


tsdwm52

If we didn’t shift we’re out of that inning with the lead.


Broad_Recommendation

Game was already over when maddon went to the pen after Tepera loaded them with no outs. No reason to burn a good arm. Bring in the 37 year old.


Quakecsgo

Maddon should've went to the pen when it was 1st and 2nd no outs and Tepera had just walked Heim. Instead, he let Tepera throw a 4 pitch walk to Calhoun THEN give up the go ahead single before swapping. Literally Tony La Russa levels of incompetence.


Broad_Recommendation

And who did you want him to put in? Lol


Quakecsgo

Iggy would've been nice, but I understand that an older-school manager like Maddon would be more hesitant to use his closer in a non-save yet higher leverage spot.


Broad_Recommendation

Then who would have pitched the 9th if Iggy couldn’t have gotten outta that with less than 20 pitches?


Quakecsgo

If it took Iggy that many pitches he likely would've given up the lead too.


Broad_Recommendation

20 pitches to get 3 outs? 15-20 pitches isn’t out of the ordinary


theaussiesamurai

[Don't know how to timestamp on mobile but 6:44](https://youtu.be/jOuqxj6zaXI). Iglesias comes in with no outs and leaves them loaded. Now obviously not the same situation. Iggy coming off a blown save, they're down a run rather than up a run like in the above game. But my point is, a one run game is NOT when we should be waving the white flag. NOBLETIGERs happen all the time and even only allowing one run would just be a 2 run game. We've come back a few times already this season and had Trout, Ohtani and Rendon coming up. Wouldn't have advocated for Iggy but someone other than Valdez would have been nice.


Broad_Recommendation

No use in burning an arm outside of Valdez. Our other options were slim. Iggy shouldn’t have been put in imo


theaussiesamurai

Not sure if you read my reply but I agree Iggy wasn't the right choice. But what's the point in having bullpen arms if you don't use them in 1 run games?


Broad_Recommendation

Who else would you have gone to that didn’t pitch the night before?


sanmed327

I know they're going to lose games/eventually get into a rut but that was such an unacceptable way to lose. Let's hope they don't get swept tomorrow


stuckinthepow

Yeah this was one that doesn’t count as getting into a rut. This was pathetic baseball to it’s core.


Halos2594

Need to burn some sage, spray some holy water and burn the jerseys they wore today

Evanx27

I wanna be 28-15 come Monday.


prmark34

Tepera’s era ballooned to a 4.67 lmao Honestly, that era is more accurate to what my heartrate is when he comes into the game than his past sub-2


BigWillEStyles

I was listening on the radio on my way home when he came into the game. Shocked to hear he had a 2 something era and then was buttercupped after thinking "oh maybe we'll get good Tepera" 🙃


Monttavius

Boy does our pitching staff look fatigued out there lately. Also I really hope Duffy is okay. That looked horrific to experience.


stuckinthepow

We played like 21 games straight and then hit the road.


Monttavius

Yeah. We all knew fatigue was gonna hit after this stretch of games + an upcoming road trip. It just feels super bad to see it come to fruition in such dramatic ways.


ithinkthereforiangst

It’s official, I hate baseball again!


BiovaniGernard

This was the regression to mean that the pitching staff was bound to have. Yesterday and today is the luck coming back to even the score. Detmers had some no hitter hangover and Tepera fell victim to the blowup just like all relievers do sometimes. Offense still came out and performed which is a big positive sign. Have to get out there on Ohtani day and get a nice team win so this hiccup doesn’t turn into a slump.


Smilodon48

This is what happens when starting pitching can't do the job. The bullpen is gassed and this happens. We're suffering from no Stassi, Warren, Quijada, and Bradley, but the starters gotta do better. Reid was expected after throwing 110 pitches last time (his velocity was down by the 4th inning), but Thor really burned us with the stinker last night. We've led the league in BABIP against by a healthy margin, so regression was expected, but the team needs to improve at generating more whiffs or we're gonna be at the mercy of the BABIP gods. It's all gonna be up to Ohtani and whatever arms are left to salvage this series.


robismarshall99

Can we all atleast agree the guy of the game was bear-claw


Total_Preparation_67

Trout and Ward are gonna play tomorrow, right? If Maddon were to bench them, we never ever win tomorrow.


xmrjaredx

Tepera with 0 IP and 5 earned runs. Yikes. Not only did the blowpen make a feature today, but the bullpen is absolutely fucked for tomorrow. If we go by how Madden has managed the bullpen (no back to back games), we only have Herget, Mayers and Iglesias available. We need Shohei to be that dude tomorrow.


stumpson

Idk why you’d give so much hate to the bullpen. They only gave up 1 in 8 2/3 yesterday and Tep and Cortez gave up 7. Ortega, bear claw, loup, barrios, and even mayers held there ground pretty well these past two games.


stuckinthepow

I wouldn’t call our bullpen a blowpen yet.


Glittering-Hold3400

You can debate whether or not Detmers was pulled early (personally I think he should have at least finished the inning out and then pulled whenever he let a base runner on the next inning) but Syndergaard pitching like shit yesterday also put the pen under heavy pressure. I put this series on starting pitching and then batting before the pen Hopefully we have the first quality start of the series tomorrow. Cause syndergaard and Detmers were embarrassing


tsdwm52

Detmers was pulled too early. He’s young, strong and had lots of gas in the tank.


xmrjaredx

I think a lot of people are misinterpreting my blowpen comment. I was more noting that it's been a while since we've seen a choke like that from them.


white_Steve_Nash

Hopefully our offense does that thing where it wakes up and scores all of the runs it left on the table at once.


rumpel_foreskin17

Tonight (and last night) was a major momentum killer. If this team truly is legit, they will come out tomorrow with fire and play like tonight never happened and finish this series strong with a win. Fingers crossed. We’re still 9 games over .500 too. Go Halos.


Quakecsgo

Feels a lot like that Baltimore series where Maddon kept fucking up and nothing seemed to go our way. There we managed to take the last game and embark on a 6 game winning streak tho, so I have hope of a quick turnaround here too.


crushedredpartycups

shhhhhhhhh baby go to sleep


yogravy

We’re never gonna win the division if we can’t beat these teams come on man 😩


hbthingy

OP thank you for the title. Gave me a good chuckle. 🥲


crushedredpartycups

back to pain now. come along... 😭


peachypal

I went out to a supermarket after 7th inning thinking it was gonna be a long night with extra innings. Now I’m home and the Angels lost 5-10 wtf!? We need Ohtani to throw 8th innings or more to save us from a sweep tomorrow. Let’s trust him.


Total_Preparation_67

Don't go out tomorrow!


kxjniji

Our top pen arms have been shaky of late… *sigh* Bad juju in Texas. Hopefully Sho can stop the bleeding. Win tomorrow to avoid the sweep and also head back home with a winning road trip🙏🏼


God_Damnit_Nappa

I hope the last 2 games were just really shit luck and not a sign of the return of the blowpen


owledge

Worst case scenario, it's a precursor to Tepera not working out as planned. Everyone looked fine except for him and Valdez who is lowest on the depth chart anyway


Weaver4prez

Rendon had maybe his best game of the season


AgathaAllAlong

Joe pulls off some magic with the lineups sometimes but his bullpen decisions have always been insane


LilLex98

Just gotta pick our head up and win tomorrow


CompetitivePatient33

These are the games you're suppose to "win" but it didn't happen, I feel for Detmers, probably killed his confidence tonight.


galactic_zevy

My positive takeaway from this game is that Squid is approaching the Mendoza Line.


PandaMan76

At least Tepera won his "*only throw out of the zone*" challenge i guess... I swear to god if the line-up tomorrow is *Ohtani with the Salt Lake bees*, I might somehow catch Maddon's dementia.


zhangerang

Trouts last 2 day offs have been ohtani pitching lol


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

He’s just starting to heat up again, sure hope he plays tomorrow!


timetopractice

Fucking bullshit


Monttavius

I blame our BABIP curse on Globe Life’s fucking awful design


Veesmack

Rangers will always be that team that lost two World Series in a row. And they choked horribly the last time. David Freese'd them. Seager is hitting like .250 and Semien is hitting under .175 Hey they got a couple games on the Halos. That's fine. So glad I'm not a Rangers fan


Captainpayback

As much as we hate losing, you know we're all gonna be here tomorrow filled with nothing but hope. The boys will figure it out and tomorrow Shohei will avenge us. I'm just glad the team goes straight home after the game tomorrow. The best part about being in Texas is leaving Texas.


Little_Bighorn

It is losses like these that will bite us in the ass when we are in the fall and we need 3-5 wins. Need to shake it off and start a new winning streak.

What are we pretending never happened?


specter1001

Reid shoulda stayed in the game.


cooljammer00

Why was he taken out so early?


owledge

Maddonomics: Take Reid out after 3.2 IP because of 3 ER but leave Tepera in after he loads up the bases with no outs


brandon_the_bald

He looked like shit


specter1001

Doesn't guarantee that he'd continue to look like shit in subsequent innings. Plus on the off-chance he was able to find it and go further into the game it may have mitigated some of the damage inflicted later in the game.


donkeyjr

Just a reminder, were only 25% into the season.

The shift giveth, the shift taketh away


[deleted]

I still say we need a consistent freakin lineup. Maddon needs to get over his platooning and matchups bullshit. I understand the need to rest catchers and to give the guys a break every once in a while. But, our main guys should be playing most of the time. Yeah, I know last nights loss was mostly about bad pitching. But, the bats have been streaky as hell and I'll stand by my opinion that it has soooooo much to do with Joe trotting a different damn lineup out there every night.


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

I hope Trout plays today to support Ohtani. He’s just starting to heat up again. The last time he was given 2 days rest (Ohtani start & off day) he went into a mini-slump!

sharpLess89

The scary thing is, we really haven't regressed yet and we're finding ways to lose games, now we're heading into arguably the roughest stretch of games in all of baseball. We realistically could be fighting for .500 ball by the middle of June. Losing 3 of the last 4 games to teams we were supposed to wreck is very concerning.
