Los Angeles Angels manager Joe Maddon is happy with the team’s performance

After Friday’s 5-1 win against the Chicago White Sox at the Guaranteed Rate Field in Illinois, the reporters interviewed Joe Maddon at the post-game ceremony.

Maddon said, “Our bullpen guys man for man did a great job. When he’s (Shohei Ohtani) hitting the ball hardback in the middle, it’s always a good sign. Anthony Rendon looks really good. The left-handers have started getting it right. David Fletcher looked good. But our defense was superb. It was a really well-played game.”

With Mike Trout out of the injury scare near his left wrist area, he is back at what he does the best, hitting the ball out of the park. He along with the 27-year-old outfielder, Shohei Ohtani, has been a nightmare for many pitchers as they can change the entire game in just a couple of innings.

Trout has already scored 5 home runs, whereas Ohtani has scored 4 in the MLB 2022 season. Meanwhile, if we look at the pitchers of the Angels, Noah Syndergaard, Raisel Iglesias, Michael Lorenzen, Shohei Ohtani, and others have been striking out every player who comes to bat in front of them.
