And the nemesis that are the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim continue to torture Felix.
* He is 0-2 with a 5.75 ERA in three starts vs. the Halos this season.
* He is 13-4 with a 2.04 ERA against everyone else.
‘t was a great game to be at ~until the 8th inning~ when the 2-1 lead evaporated to an eventual 5-2 loss.
“Felix is one of the best pitchers, if not the best pitcher in the game,” Angels right fielder Torii Hunter said after his 3-for-4 day. “If the Mariners get ahead while he’s on the mound, it’s going to be a battle, and we knew we had an uphill battle. We kind of shortened our swings and tried to really battle at the plate and we were able to come through with some big hits.”
“You know he’s going to go out there and compete,” Wedge said. “With his talent, ability and mindset, you always feel good about it. We had multiple opportunities to add on. If we make it 3-1 or 4-1, it’s a different ballgame. That’s really where we needed to do a better job today.”
Nice to see Guti with another double and Trayvon with another homer (on his birthday!) But, Wedge is right – they had more opportunities that went for naught.
