On a hot and humid night in Southern California the Angels’ bats went cold, only managing five hits on their way to being blanked by the Tampa Bay Rays 7-0.
It was the twelve time this year that the Angels were shutout, and with the loss they fall a little deeper in a hole as they see themselves seven games back in the West.
Dan Haren took the mound today for the halos and continued to look rusty and like he had absolutely nothing on his pitches. For the second start in a row he could not manage to get out of the fourth inning, Haren allowed five runs on seven hits in just 3.2 innings of work to pick up his tenth loss on the season.
David Price for the Rays was quite the opposite, he pitched seven scoreless frames and only allowed three hits to pick up his sixteenth victory on the season.
The Angels have now gone 32 straight innings without scoring a run against the Rays.
