The nightmare season of the Los Angeles Angels continued last night.
A 3-1 loss to the Cleveland Guardians marked their third straight loss and dropped them to 61-81 on the season.
The Angels will try to avoid a three-game sweep this afternoon, but even if they do, it doesn’t erase all of the misfortune from this season that once had a lot of promise.
With last night’s loss, the Angels assured themselves of their seventh consecutive non-winning season.
Even winning all the rest of their games would only put them at the .500 mark, and that is a far cry at this point.
The Angels lost 3-1. It's their 3rd straight loss.
They are 20 games below .500 at 61-81 and have clinched another non-winning season.

Halos Clinch Disaster Season
It’s only a matter of time before the Halos clinch their seventh consecutive losing season.
It may happen today.
It has not been a fun season out in Anaheim.
After a hot start, a 14-game losing skid took them out of the race and they still have yet to recover from it.
After a busy offseason, it finally looked like the Halos had enough to compete for a spot in the postseason.
That sentiment sure didn’t last long.
Now, the Angels are 20 games below the .500 mark, with no hope of ending their rut anytime soon.
With 20 games left, they find themselves 18.5 games back of the third AL Wild Card and 31 games back of the Houston Astros for first place in the AL West.
Not even an unlikely 20-game winning streak can save them at this point.
There’s always next year for the Angels to come back stronger and find a way to return to postseason contention.
But for now, the sting of this season is still a lot to bare for the Halos and their fans.
