Angels on to their eighth pitcher of the game in the seventh inning. Bases loaded. Two out.

Springer up.

Springer pops up to right. He’s just off lately and he knows it.

OMG. The alternate channel just went off. Apparently it does not matter that the game is not over.

Yep. They could have at least switched over to the primary channel as the Rockets game has been over for an hour. Now, we have audio, but no video.

Scrubb pitching:
Upton flies out to CF.
Tommy La Stellaaaaaa! singles to right field on a full count.
Rengifo walks on four pitches.
Jason Castro Ks looking.
Jared Walsh grounds out 6-3.

Astros win 9-6!

I didn’t think that game would ever end.

Julia said it was the longest nine-inning game in Angels history.

The Angels used 9 pitchers.

If Manfred wants to shorten the average length of time it takes to play an MLB game, stop allowing teams to use so many pitchers. In the last two games the Astros have played, the Dodgers and Angels used 17 pitchers.
