Friday night was the Angels first home game since the untimely death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs on July 1st. His team took the field with every player wearing a number 45 Skaggs jersey.
Skaggs’ mother threw out the first pitch, the Angels bats put up 13 runs and the two pitchers who took the mound didn’t allow a single hit. Taylor Cole opened the game and went two innings before giving way to Felix Pena, who went the rest of the way, for the 11th no-hitter in Angels history.
After the game ended, Angels players took off their Skaggs jerseys and placed them on the mound.
Gone but never forgotten ⚾👼❤️

The Mariners really had no chance at doing anything during Friday night’s game. The Angels took the emotion of the night and buried Seattle. It’s a pretty cool moment for the Skaggs family.
