Seems like the LA Angels have finally found their perfect lineup for this season. Notably, the Angels did not start their season on a winning note, as they lost their opening day game against the Houston Astros. But thanks to players like Noah Syndergaard, Shohei Ohtani, and Mike Trout, they are back to the winning ways.

Currently, the Angels are on a winning streak, and the Angles manager Joe Maddon could not be more glad about the way his team is playing. First, Mike Trout hammered three home runs in a single game against the Rangers, then Shohei Ohtani also had a wonderful time with the bat. And now, the Angels ace, Noah Syndergaard, also shone on Saturday against the Rangers.
