After winning 7 straight games and 17 of their last 20, the Angels ran into an old comrade: Ervin Santana. Just a few starts after returning from an 80 game suspension for PED’s, Santana brought the ‘A game’ that Halos fans saw off and on for 8 years in Anaheim. All the Angels could do was take it, and move on to the next series against eh Texas Rangers. Here are some notes:

  • Matt Joyce is 0 for his last 21 and could find himself out of the job on August 1.
  • At one point in this game, Garrett Richards had retired 26 straight hitters going back to his last start. One more and he would’ve had a perfect game between parts of two starts.
