While the New York Yankees have been sliding, they at least have the comfort of knowing that they’re 10 games ahead in the American League East.
For the Los Angeles Angels, not so much.
They have been on an epic slide since the end of May and have completely lost their way after a hot start to the season.
At 51-65, there really is no hope at this point for the Halos.
And it keeps going from bad to worse.
The Angels lost another one last night to the Seattle Mariners, and one inning in the game stood out, which ultimately sums up the way their season has gone.
Defense was nowhere to be found, mistakes were being made, and the Mariners kept tacking on more runs.

Halos Break Down At Crucial Moment
There’s “down bad” and then there’s what took place for the Angels in the top of the ninth last night.
Errors, letting a runner who was caught in a rundown slip by, and just all around back luck is what sunk the Angels in last night’s game.
Can it get any worse for the Halos?
Obviously, it can.
It ultimately sums up the way the 2022 season has gone for the Angels.
Things began to go south at the end of May, and they haven’t found a way to get it going again.
Firing Joe Maddon didn’t help at all.
And last night, their defensive breakdown wasted another great outing by Shohei Ohtani, who held the Mariners to two runs over six innings and struck out eight.
It was a collapse of epic proportions for the Halos.
Now, they find themselves 14 games below the .500 mark with no hope of breaking out of their funk.
