Taylor Ward might not be a household name in the game of baseball, or even the most recognizable player on his team, but he sure did steal the headlines on Wednesday for the Los Angeles Angels. Taking on the Cleveland Guardians, Ward was a major reason as to why they got a 9-5 win, racking up a grand slam, triple, and a double as he just fell short of hitting for the cycle. After his four-bagger that drove in four, the Angels were always up by at least four, prompting the win and pushing their record to 12-7 on the new season.
In other action, the New York Yankees saw Giancarlo Stanton make a bit of history on Wednesday as he became the seventh-fastest Major Leaguer to accrue 350 home runs in a career. He also was able to end a run of 14 games with a homer as well, so that’s never a bad thing to do. The Yankees would go on to win 5-2 over the Baltimore Orioles, utilizing all three RBIs from Stanton to push them along to what has become a customary victory over the O’s in recent years.
