What a night in Anaheim.
In their first home game since Skaggs’ death at 27 years old on July 1, Angels paid tribute to Skaggs with a pregame ceremony that featured his mother, Debbie, throwing a perfect ceremonial first pitch.
Los Angeles Angels pitcher Taylor Cole and Felix Pena have combined for eight no-hit innings against the Seattle Mariners. The last and only combined no-hitter by the Angels was April 11, 1990, when Mark Langston and Mike Witt combined to no-hit the Mariners in a 1-0 win at Angel Stadium. It was also the fourth time the Mariners had been no-hit in their history, with the last time coming on Philip Humber's perfect game on April 21, 2012.
After the game, every member of the Angels came out to the mound and dropped in an emotional tribute.
