Gubie Tuesday: Mike Trout homers, Angels Struggle.

April 9, 2024

I can’t believe the Angels lost on Gubie Tuesday. The Angels losing an early lead is a classic move. Mike Trout got a home run in the first inning. It is his sixth of the season which currently makes him tied for first for most home runs this year. Rendon pulled through and stole a base. I missed a chunk of the game tonight to watch two new episodes of Lopez vs Lopez on NBC. I also had a chance to check in on how Ohtani was doing. He is currently on a hitting streak. I saw him get another double today.

Today marked the first day I watched a Taco Bell commercial during a baseball game. That is a restaurant that heavily reminds me of the World Series. I guess that Steal A Base, Steal A Taco promotion is doing its job.

Both the Angels and Dodgers have early games tomorrow. I expect to miss both of them. Neither team has a game on Thursday. This could mean two days without watching baseball. The struggle.
