The few of the announced crowed of 30,992 who showed up for this makeup game — a game the Angels had hoped they wouldn't play Thursday because it meant they would begin a stretch of 20 contests in 20 days — serenaded Harvey with jeers. “It's probably one of my worst innings ever, one of my worst starts ever,” Harvey said after the Angels dropped to 22-27 and 10 1/2 games behind the first-place Houston Astros in the American League West.
