No. 2 encouraging sign from the LA Angels vs. NY Yankees series: Offensive momentum
The LA Angels came out the gate swinging the bats pretty well in the first game of this series.
Shohei Ohtani and Juan Lagares hit home runs, and four other Angels hit doubles.
Game 2 was a different story, however. Ohtani hit two jacks to take the home run lead, Jose Iglesias went three for four with a homer and a couple of RBI to go along with that.
“Tony Two-Bags” AKA Anthony Rendon hit a double and went two for three, and the Angels seemed to be finding their groove a bit offensively.
Then came Game 3, when Phil Gosselin hit a two-run tank in the first inning. The Angels ended up finding themselves down 4 to 8, however, entering the top of the ninth.
In came Jared Walsh, who hit a game-tying grand slam off of Aroldis Chapman to tie it up. He went two for five on the day with two bombs and five RBI. The Halos then went on to score three more runs after that to win the game 11-8.
The bats were alive in Yankee Stadium for the Angels in this series, and they show no signs of stopping.
