Angels manager Phil Nevin praised the team’s aggressiveness and ability to capitalize on pitches in the strike zone. The offensive outburst fired up the clubhouse and demonstrated the contagious nature of hitting. Following the game, the Angels announced the acquisition of veteran infielder Mike Moustakas from the Rockies in exchange for minor league pitcher Connor Van Scoyoc.

The Angels continued their offensive onslaught with an eight-run fourth inning, highlighted by David Fletcher’s three-run homer. In total, they scored 21 runs on 17 hits in the third and fourth innings combined. Hunter Renfroe and Mickey Moniak contributed five hits and four RBIs each, while Drury and Trout also had impressive performances. Griffin Canning delivered a stellar pitching performance, throwing six scoreless innings and securing his fourth consecutive win.

The historic day left the Angels players in awe, with Fletcher expressing his disbelief at the consecutive home runs and hoping to carry the momentum into future games. Every Angels starter contributed with at least one hit, one RBI, and a run scored. Shohei Ohtani, the league’s home run leader, had a relatively quiet night but managed to drive in a run with a single.

The Angels’ dominant performance overwhelmed the Rockies, setting records for runs allowed in an inning and marking the second-most runs given up by the Rockies in a game. Colorado manager Bud Black downplayed the significance of the loss, considering it just one game.

The Angels also made changes to their infield, starting newly acquired Eduardo Escobar at third base and giving Hunter Renfroe his second career start at first base. Additionally, David Fletcher started at shortstop after being recalled, and the team made roster moves by optioning Jared Walsh and Michael Stefanic to Salt Lake City while designating Kevin Padlo for assignment.

In injury updates, third baseman Anthony Rendon made progress by playing catch but has yet to take batting practice due to a left wrist contusion. Pitcher Matt Moore, who suffered a right oblique strain, threw a simulated game and will be evaluated further.

Overall, the Angels’ record-setting victory showcased their offensive prowess and highlighted the team’s potential for future success.
