Taylor Ward is one of the many reasons Los Angeles Angeles has competed from a sub.500 team in just a few months.
He has become red-hot on the plate and is leading the charge due to the Angels’ fight with the Houston Astros in AL West.
The 28-year-old is hitting .376 with nine home runs and 23 RBIs.
Its OPSO is quite impressive, sitting at 1.217.
Needless to say, Angels fans love every minute of it.
Angels radio broadcaster Trent Rush is too, and he took to Twitter to share his views on all the hype.
Great thing about Taylor Ward, it’s not just some flocky hot streak. He’s a great hitter that has gone through it, crushed like crazy and is finally improving. He is representing everything great about this game.

Word on Fire
Rush is completely on board with this.
Ward Angels is giving fans a reason to laugh and giving their lineup a little extra lift.
Along with Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and Anthony Randon, they were already the top three producers of the game.
But now Ward has joined in with all the fun.
It’s been a while since Angels has been so good and fans are so excited, but here we see Ward tearing it up and proving that he is not only ready for the Major League, but has become one of the best. Injuries in the game.
He’s not getting red-hot and slow.
No pitcher wants to face him at the moment, but Trout, Ohtani and Randon are also in the lineup, they don’t have much choice.
Ward’s breakout is somewhat reflected in Tyler O’Neill a year ago, how he exploded in front of the scene and started hitting.
He has to keep it up and not stop anytime soon.
