Angels no-hit Mariners on a night of remembrance for Tyler Skaggs

first_img Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Cole started and threw two perfect innings. Peña relieved him and threw seven innings, allowing only one baserunner on a walk. It was the 11th no-hitter in franchise history, the first since Jered Weaver on May 2, 2012.An evening that began somber and scripted ended in spontaneous joy. After Mallex Smith grounded out to second baseman Luis Rengifo to end the game, the Angels’ dugout and bullpen emptied onto the field to embrace Peña. When the celebration ended, every player removed his jersey and placed it on the mound – an idea hatched by hitting coach Jeremy Reed.Credit Skaggs with the save.“That was partly Skaggsy’s no-hitter,” Manager Brad Ausmus said.Skaggs was everywhere Friday. The announced crowd of 43,140 was greeted with a makeshift memorial in front of the entrance to Angel Stadium. An image of Skaggs was affixed to the wall in center field. In the home clubhouse, Skaggs’ locker stood unchanged. A hat, a Coca-Cola bottle, and a baseball filled the top shelf. A warm-up jacket, nine shirts, four pairs of white pants, and two red jersey tops hung from the center rack. Two gloves and four pairs of cleats filled the bottom shelves. A white jersey top hung from a hanger on the left side; three pairs of socks hung from a hook on the right. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error First pitch was delayed until 7:18 p.m. for a pregame ceremony in Skaggs’ honor. Former Angels pitcher Garrett Richards stood with Skaggs’ family as a tribute video played, followed by 45 seconds of silence. Skaggs’ mother, Debbie, threw the first ceremonial first pitch to Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney. It sailed across the middle of the plate, the same location as Skaggs’ final pitch of his final game on June 30, a perfect strike.“If anybody had any questions of where Skaggs got his ability to throw off a mound, it was pretty evident tonight,” Heaney said.Just when it seemed like the game to follow couldn’t matter less, the Angels unleashed an unforgettable slaughter.Mike Trout went 3 for 4 with six RBIs, reaching safely twice more with a walk and a hit-by-pitch. David Fletcher and Andrelton Simmons both finished 3 for 5. Cole struck out two batters in the two innings Ausmus planned for his “opener.” Peña struck out six batters, throwing an efficient 76 pitches.The Angels scored seven runs in the first inning against the Mariners. Trout batted twice, hitting a two-run home run in his first at-bat and a two-run double with the bases loaded in his second at-bat. Seattle’s starting pitcher, Mike Leake, threw 47 pitches to 12 batters and recorded only two outs. His last pitch was ball four to Shohei Ohtani.Matt Festa replaced Leake and struck out Justin Upton to end the inning, but the outcome of the game was sealed. As tributes go, a 7-0 win over a division rival would have been more than sufficient. As it happened, the Angels were just getting started.Cole threw a 1-2-3 second inning, pointing skyward after he retired Kyle Seager on a fly ball for the third out. In the bottom of the inning, the Angels scored twice more. Festa walked Matt Thaiss with the bases loaded to force in a run. Trout batted with the bases loaded and was hit on the left arm, forcing in another run. By the end of the second inning, Trout had batted three times and driven in five runs.Peña did not allow a baserunner until Omar Narvaez walked in the fifth inning. He did not come close to allowing a hit until the sixth inning, when Mac Williamson hit a hard grounder between Thaiss, the Angels’ third baseman, and shortstop Andrelton Simmons.Thaiss, a catcher in college and a first baseman for most of his minor league career, found the ball in the webbing of his glove after diving to his left. He threw to first base in time to retire Williamson by a half-step, the Angels’ most photogenic play in the field since the ceremonial first pitch.“That’s probably the one ball, except for the last one, that had a chance of being a hit,” Ausmus said. “Matt has not played a ton of third base over there. Just started this year. … He made a heck of a play.”Related Articles PreviousA moment of silence during a tribute for pitcher Tyler Skaggs who passed away on On July 1, 2019 prior to a MLB baseball game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners at Anaheim Stadium on Friday, July 12, 2019 in Anaheim, California.

He said he hasn’t looked at it since Tyler Skaggs died. He isn’t ready.There is no universal method for grieving tragedy. Another way is to look at the tragedy square in the eyes, to match its intensity. Every Angels player wore a jersey with Skaggs’ name and number 45 for Friday’s game against the Seattle Mariners, their first home game since Skaggs died July 1 in Texas. Taylor Cole and Felix Peña threw a combined no-hitter and the Angels won 13-0.“I know he’s here today,” Cole said. “He’s looking over us. He’s definitely a part of this. That goes without question.”READ ABOUT THE ANGELS’ 10 PREVIOUS NO-HITTERScenter_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter The Angels kept scoring against the hapless Mariners (39-56), the last-place team in the American League West. In the fifth inning, Trout drove in Fletcher with a double. In the sixth inning, Simmons scored on a groundout. In the seventh inning, Justin Upton’s fourth home run of the season cleared the fence in left-center field. The Angels led 13-0. The only suspense that remained was the potential for a no-hitter.Heaney called the outcome “emotionally therapeutic.”“After the game, we run out on the field, everybody’s celebrating, and like three hours earlier – I don’t know about everybody else – but I had tears in my eyes,” Heaney said. “You’re sort of reliving your bad memories, bad thoughts, and so just for tonight and maybe moving forward, just to change your mindset when you think about him. You’re thinking about the loss of a friend, of a teammate … moving forward hopefully it can be, you think of him, you think of his jersey, think of his name. Hopefully, it brings back positive memories.”Trout noted that Saturday, July 13, would have been Skaggs’ 28th birthday.“We scored seven runs in the first, ended with 13. Tyler’s birthday is 7/13. Thirteen runs, 13 hits. Obviously, tomorrow’s the 13th. It’s stuff you can’t … tonight was in honor of him. He was definitely looking over us tonight. He’s probably up there saying we’re nasty. What an unbelievable game to be a part of. Like I said, I’m speechless. I can’t … this is the best way possible to honor him tonight. It was pretty, pretty crazy.”Trout was not alive the last time a combined no-hitter was thrown in the state of California.
