The Angels were shutout 9-0 Sunday by Vin Mazzaro and the Kansas City Royals. Yes the same Vin Mazzaro who in his previous 2 starts allowed a mind boggling 20 earned runs. Leave it to the Angels bats to wake up a struggling pitcher. Mazzaro somehow navigated his way through 7 shutout innings while getting the Halos to bounce into 5 double plays.( Yes Torii Hunter included). With the loss the Angels dropped the 3 games series 2-1 to the Royals and dropped to 31-36 overall. Screams for Mickey Hatcher’s dismissal as Hitting Coach have probably never been more loud or more deserved. The Angels continue to exhibit poor approaches at the plate and consistently lack a game plan that is tailored toward the opposing starter.
- Up Next the Halos take their act to Seattle to face off against the Mariners for 3.
