The Los Angeles Angels got a nice little gift from rookie starter Matt Shoemaker a day after losing Garrett Richards to a freak knee injury (expected to be out six to nine months).

Shoemaker had a no-no going two outs into the seventh when Boston’s Will Middlebrooks stepped up and hit a double. In her frustration, Shoemaker’s wife, Danielle, sent out the following tweet.

Low and behold, she got jumped by Red Sox fans, causing Mrs. Shoemaker to delete her tweet and send this out as a followup. But guess what?! We have screenshots thanks to Deadspin!

But eventually Shoemaker got the win and lasted seven and two thirds innings.

“It was supposed be down, but it was belt-high, middle-in,” Shoemaker said, according to Digiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. “He roped it down the line. Definitely an unfortunate pitch given the circumstances.”

He appears to be playoff ready.
