Boxscore Breakdown #132: The other shoe didn’t drop – Angels 6, Athletics 2

A funny thing happened to the Angels in this game- nothing. Matt Shoemaker could’ve fallen victim to a big inning early, but he didn’t. He could’ve collapsed in the seventh, but he didn’t. The decision to call on two freshly called up relievers to work the eighth could’ve blown up in Scioscia’s face, but it didn’t. Huston Street‘s troublesome start to the ninth could’ve...

Boxscore Breakdown #93: Kicking and screaming – Angels 7, Twins 0
