The Bad - No Hit in Game 2

Hard to believe being no hit in a game would not be the ugly section of this series, but just wait till we get to that part.

Game 2 of this series was all Angels, as they roughed up Corey Kluber to the tune of 8 runs on 11 hits in just 3 innings of work for the Rays starter. The Rays bullpen held the Angels in check the rest of the game, until "two-way" player Brett Phillips gave up four runs in the 8th inning.

The real story here was the no-hitter thrown by Reid Detmers during the contest. Detmers only allowed one base runner the whole game, walking Taylor Walls in the top of the 6th inning. Detmers managed to shut down the Rays while only striking out two in the outing and throwing 108 total pitches.

The Angels rookie had struggled to start the year, having only gone five innings at most through five starts this season and entering the contest with an ERA of 5.32. Detmers had it going that night though, and the Rays bats went ice cold.
