Angels keep rolling.

By: Dr. Spock

They were playing in a snow storm tonight and still beat the Royals 5-3.  Valbuena (3), Upton (4), and Trout (6) homered.  The Angels lead MLB in just about every team offensive category.  They are just killing it right now. In 1st place, 2.5 games up on the Astros. 

Ohtani pitching Sunday morning in the cold.  The forecast is low 30s, with a 20 MPH wind and a wind chill in the 20s.  It will be interesting to see how Ohtani handles the cold.  He pitched mostly in domes in Japan. By comparison tonight, Angels starting pitcher Garrett Richards had a perfect game going heading into the 5th, when it started to rain and then snow.  He went from having a perfect game to throwing 3 wild pitches in one inning.  It's obviously hard to throw strikes when you can't feel your fingers.

We will see next week if the Angels are for real.  They are off Monday but on Tuesday they start a 3 game series vs. Boston in Anaheim.  Boston is 12-2 right now.
