The LA Angels Win Last Night Was Exactly What This Team Was Supposed to Be in 2019

3.) Elite Pitching Out of the Bullpen
Last night, the Angels bullpen entered the game down 1-0. Andrew Heaney had done his job, but the offense hadn’t been able to string together any hits to that point.
Then, the bullpen did exactly what it was supposed to do.
Noe Ramirez got the first two outs of the seventh inning seamlessly. Miguel Del Pozo, the eventual winning pitcher, came in and retired the final out of the inning.
As noted earlier, the Angels offense then picked apart Mike Minor and gained a lead.
Cam Bedrosian, who is having a phenomenal bounce back season, did allow a solo home run in his inning of work. However, he worked through the inning well besides that one pitch. He held the lead, and handed the ball to Hansel Robles for the ninth.
And El Blanco did what El Blanco does. He shut down the Rangers to secure the win, and end the Angels’ five game skid.
The Angels, for the first time in a week, won a baseball game. And this time around, they won it just how they drew it up at the start of the season.
