Ron Washington, Angels manager, expresses disappointment in Luis Guillorme’s unsuccessful squeeze bunt attempt: ‘He didn’t fulfill his duties.’

In a close 7-6 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, the Los Angeles Angels attempted a squeeze play that ultimately failed and left manager Ron Washington frustrated. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth inning and down by one run, Luis Guillorme was tasked with executing a squeeze bunt to tie the game. However, despite being recently acquired by the Angels, Guillorme was unable to do so. He missed a 1-1 slider, resulting in a tag-out at home plate and a baserunner advancing to third.

Four pitches later, Guillorme struck out to end the inning and squandered the Angels’ opportunity to tie or take the lead. Washington defended his decision to call for the squeeze play, citing the matchup of lefty vs. lefty and wanting to avoid a potential double play. Despite Romero’s struggles with control leading up to the play, Washington dismissed any notion that wildness played a factor.

In response to Washington’s comments, Guillorme acknowledged his failure and credited Romero for making a good pitch. The loss dropped the Angels’ record to 15-28, last in the AL West. With their recent string of losses, including only managing consecutive wins twice this season so far, it seems like their struggles continue as they attempt to turn things around on track towards success.
