MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

The loss yesterday had a very similar feeling to the one against the Giants. Yeah, it was a loss and losses are bad. However, there remained so much fight in the Phillies that you kind of have to just tip your cap to the Angels for not rolling over and dying. The news that most of their team is simply being given away can’t be good for the clubhouse and it could have been very easy for them to just quit after the Trea Turner home run, but they didn’t. They kept battling and took a pretty good win from the Phillies.
