An unbelievable thing happened. The Los Angeles Angels bombarded the Colorado Rockies, scoring 25 points in just one game.
The Angels won a 25-1, 24-point victory in an away game against Colorado in the 2023 MLB held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA on the 25th스포츠토토.
Starting pitcher Griffin Canning succeeded in challenging his 6th win of the season with 4 hits, 7 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings. Colton Ingram and Tucker Davidson, who came up next, finished the game with 1 run in 2 innings and 1 scoreless inning, respectively.
Above all, it was a day in which the performance of the other line stood out. The Angels kicked off the game in the second inning with David Fletcher’s two RBIs, and in the top of the third, Mike Trout, Brandon Drury, and Matt Theis hit homers in three consecutive innings, scoring a massive 13 runs in one inning. The gap between the two teams widened to 15 points.
The weight of the game slanted early in the game, but the Angels lineup was not satisfied with a 15-point lead. He completed a 20-point game by adding 8 points only at the beginning of the 4th inning, including Drury’s 1 RBI and timely hit. Adding 1 point in the 6th inning and 1 point in the 8th inning to this, he changed the record for the most points scored in a game in the history of the club. The previous record was 24 points in 1979.
According to MLB.com, the official website of the Major League Baseball, the 24-point victory is the third-highest score difference in MLB history since the 20th century. The first place in this category is held by the Texas Rangers in 2007, and Texas recorded a 27-point victory (30-3) at the time.
The Angels, who hit 5 homers on the day, achieved hits for all starters, while Hunter Renfro and Mickey Moniak wielded 5 hits in 5 at-bats side by side, leading the team to victory. Fletcher, who collected 4 hits and 5 RBIs, also contributed greatly to the team’s victory.
The Angels almost made all the starters multi-hit, but only one of the nine starters only had one hit. Shohei Ohtani, who is leading the home run category in both major leagues this season, was satisfied with 1 hit and 1 walk in 7 at-bats. If you look at it differently, it was a game where the Angels proved that they could score multiple points without relying on Ohtani’s performance.
