Los Angeles Angels Set MLB Record! (And Still Lose)

During Thursday's game against the Oakland A's, the Los Angeles Angels became the first team in MLB history to get all of their runs on seven solo home runs. That's a pretty cool achievement, but things quickly go sour when noting that they still managed to fall to the A's by an 8-7 final score.

The 2022 season has been such a disastrous year for the Angels. Once destined to be a playoff team, they fell off dramatically after a 14-game losing streak. Since then, they have lost far more than they have won, and this trend is showing no signs of stopping. Yet, losing a game while setting a new MLB record takes things to a different level for the Halos.

Still, it's extremely rare to see seven home runs from one club in a single game. Shohei Ohtani led the way with two home runs, while Kurt Suzuki, Taylor Ward, Jo Adell, Jared Walsh, and Mickey Moniak all went deep as well. Still wasn't enough to secure the W, though.
