Ugliness abounds for the Angels as they get dismantled by Rangers 15-9

Angels 9  Rangers 15 The Angels and Rangers engaged in some downright ugly baseball today. Sometimes, ugly baseball can be fun, whether the Angels win or lose. Remember the Rally Cat game? That game had both sides doing all they seemingly could to lose, as if neither wanted to win, they just wanted the fun and the scoring to go on forever and ever. I enjoyed that ugly game; I did...
