It's sad seeing Tim Lincecum scuffle through this outing for the Angels. He already has six walks in the fourth inning, has allowed four hits and a couple more hard-hit outs. His ERA is 8.45 and I'm not sure there is much incentive for the Angels to keep running him out there.

Just another 5-for-5 day for Escobar

Tuesday marks the fourth time that Yunel Escobar has gone 5-for-5 (or better) in a game in his MLB career; all three previous instances came in the 2015 season. He's the fourth player in the modern era (since 1900) with at least four such games over a two-season span, the Elias Sports Bureau reports. The previous three are all Hall of Famers:

  • Tris Speaker (1923: three times, 1924: one)
  • Zack Wheat (1924: two, 1925: two)
  • Tony Gwynn (1993: three, 1994: one)

Angels' offense relentless when clicking

Tuesday's 13-0 win marks the Halos' second game this season with 22 hits. The rest of the teams in the majors have two such games combined, ESPN Stats & Info notes.

Pujols, Angels follow winning formula

Albert Pujols drove in four runs in the Angels' win on Monday. It was Pujols's 64th career game with at least four RBIs, and his teams are 60-4 in those games (.938), the Elias Sports Bureau reports. The only player with at least 60 four-RBI games whose teams had a better record in those contests was Joe DiMaggio (60-2-1 in 63 games, .968).
