The attack of the angels stopped doing an important thing

In MLB, there are several ways to score points.

There are teams that walk a lot, others that use “small ball” strategies and others with players with excellent contact skills.

The best baseball teams, however, are those with enough power players to change the outcome of a game.

The home run has always been, and always will be, the easiest way to score multiple runs in an inning and game.

This became evident when analyzing the recent Los Angeles Angels meltdown.

The team, once considered a bona fide contender in the AL West Division, has lost 14 straight games.

They were once 27-17, but now their record is a disappointing 27-31.

After the 12th straight loss, they fired manager Joe Maddon.

Unlike the Philadelphia Phillies, who started winning right after they fired manager Joe Girardi, the Angels have dropped two straight games under interim manager Phil Nevin.

The Angels Suddenly Stopped Hitting Homers

Their sudden lack of power is amazing and is actually one of the reasons they stopped winning.

“The Angels have hit 1 home run in their last 8+ games. That’s 1 home run in 295 plate appearances. The Angels have led the Majors in home runs for a while this year and still rank 7th overall in the overall standings. An inexplicable turn of events,” tweeted Sam Blum of The Athletic.

When you have Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani, Jared Walsh, Anthony Rendon, Tyler Ward, Max Stassi and good prospects like Brandon Marsh and Jo Adell, you’re expected to do a lot of home runs.

It happened at the beginning of the year, but the power of the angels suddenly disappeared.

These hitters are just too good to keep wrestling for long.

Until they start hitting home runs again, expect the Angels to continue to lose ground in the playoff race.
