Twitter was not kind to the Angels as the game was happening. Though, the Halos were not the only ones on the receiving end of the jokes.
Francisco Arcia is now pitching for the Angels, and as he is a catcher by trade, this game is now drunk.

The Athletics scored 20 on the Angels. The Raiders have been held to 13 and 19 points this season.

The Angels' franchise record for runs allowed: 21, twice … in Mike Scioscia's first year (2000) and in Mike Scioscia's last year (today).

Despite the loss, the Angels also have Mike Trout, baseball’s best player. That was not lost on many people tweeting through the game.
Can we get a hug or something to Mike Trout? https://t.co/XNbLXiGsib

Mike Trout homering in a two-touchdown loss is the 2010s Angels in a nutshell.

Please Angels, trade Mike Trout. You don’t deserve him. Trade him away from that mess.

We’re sure he would. Then he’d complain about his team’s lack of offense after every loss.
