The Los Angeles Angels are in the middle of a lengthy losing streak and were willing to try anything last night (June 9) against the Boston Red Sox to break it.

Unfortunately, the stunt didn’t work. The Angels were shut out 1-0 by the Red Sox and extended their losing streak to 14 games. Even in a loss, at least the Angels’ social media team had a bit of a sense of humor about it.
