The Angels took a 3-1 lead into the 7th inning yesterday. They then let up 10 runs in the final 2 innings. A casual glance at the scoreboard last night would make you think the A’s won in a laugher.
Nope. The Angel bullpen collapsed in an epic manner and the A’s went on the rampage.
Meanwhile the Giants couldn’t avoid their 20th loss and the Red Sox rolled.
Let’s get to the updated Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
