Double Home Runs or Double Tostadas?

April 1, 2024

Angels baseball is getting closer to reaching the classic 6:30 PM time slot. Technically on the east coast, this was a 6:30 PM game. Today’s game against the Marlins started off rocky, but we overcame the deficit and won 7-4. Logan O’Hoppe almost got an inside the park home run, but ended up getting his first career triple. Mike Trout got two home runs. Unfortunately, I missed Trout’s second home run and Schanuel’s home run when I switched the channel for a few minutes to check in on the news. The struggle.

The Dodgers are currently playing. Speaking of inside the park home runs, I fully believe that Mookie Betts would have gotten one in the first inning if he kept running the bases at full speed. Between the Angels game and peeping on MLB Gameday to track the Astros’ no-hitter, I think that is enough baseball for today.

This was the first time I saw Subway do any advertising on Bally Sports. El Pollo Loco was the restaurant that I watched the most commercials for today. They might be giving Jack in the Box some competition for the restaurant with the most commercials I watch if this trend continues.
