Angels no-hit Mariners on night team honors memory of Tyler Skaggs

MLB JUL 12 Mariners at Angels

Every Los Angeles Angels player wore number 45 on Friday night in tribute to teammate Tyler Skaggs, a pitcher who was found dead in a Texas hotel room earlier this month.

45 jerseys as they stood solemnly on the field while his mother, Debbie, delivered a heartbreakingly ideal strike with her first pitch.

The baseball season's relentless pace forces the Angels to heal while they play, and they went back to work after a somber All-Star break during which Skaggs was honored at the game in Cleveland. "Tonight was in honor of (Skaggs), and he was definitely looking over us".

ANAHEIM, CA - JULY 12: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim players lay their jerseys on the pitchers mound after they won a combined no-hitter agasint the Seattle Mariners at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on July 12, 2019 in Anaheim, California. Her catcher was Andrew Heaney, Skaggs' best friend and fellow Angels rotation member.

"Everybody after the game, we're running out on the field and everybody's celebrating", Heaney said in a quote captured by MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger. "That's how it's always going to be for all of us". "This is the best way to honor him".

In between those two melancholy, magical moments, the Angels played their heavy hearts out in their first home game since their beloved pitcher's death. And whether we notice or not, we kind of do the same stuff every single day.

Trout also wore No. 45 during the All-Star Game as well.

During a poignant pregame ceremony, both teams lined the basepaths as Skaggs' family took the mound led by his mother, Debbie, the longtime softball coach at Santa Monica High School.

Even the Angels' bats did their part to honor Skaggs. Pena hurled the final seven innings.

Trout crushed a 454-foot, two-run homer to left-centre on the first pitch he saw from Leake. After an uncommonly slow trot around the bases, Trout pointedly looked up in the direction of Skaggs' family in the stands.

"I think it's going to be tough this season", Trout said. Whether you're his teammate, part of his family, or just a fan like the rest of us, there's no forgetting what you're seeing right now.
