Game 21 Thread. April 25, 2021, 1:10 CDT. Angels @ Astros.

Astros go for the 4-game sweep behind Lance McCullers.

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday the Angels suffered a merciless and unrelenting pounding at the hands of the Astros bats. Oh, the humanity. There should be a law.

Ten extra-base hits in this 16-2 drubbing, including three homers and a triple by Yordan. Great to see him running. He’s pretty fast actually.

And what about 8.2 innings in relief from Kent Emanuel in his big league debut. That’s rare, but he joined a not-so-exclusive club as well yesterday, becoming the 43rd Astros pitcher to surrender a home run to Albert Pujols.

Join the club rook. The next meeting is at Brad Lidge’s room at the sanatarium

Today Lance McCullers tries to right his personal ship, as he takes his 5.28 season ERA against the Halos’ Dylan Bundy. (4.28 ERA)

For Lance, the key is fastball command, usually the first thing a pitcher learns. He’s got a number of stupifying breaking balls at this point in his career. Let’s see him get the fastball where he needs it to be for him to get to the tantalizing potential he’s never seemed to have quite reached.

Here’s the lineups
