June 13, 1999 at Edison International Stadium the Angels lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-1 in 13 innings. Mark Petkovsek would take the loss in relief and Omar Olivares pitched 8.1 innings, allowing 1 run on 6 hits and striking out 5. While Olivares pitched well in the game he would also tie an Angel single game record hitting 4 batters. Olivares signed as a free agent with the Angels after the 1997 season and would play two seasons compiling a 17-18 record with a 4.04 ERA. Olivares would be traded with Randy Velarde mid-season 1999 to the Oakland A's in the deal which brought Jeff DaVanon to the Angels. 1999 was a frustrating year for the Angels as injuries would hurt them throughout the year including 1998 free agent signee Mo Vaughn in the first game of the season. Also manager Terry Collins would resign with 29 games left in the season as the players petitioned GM Bill Bavasi to fire him. The Angels would finish 1999 at 70-92, last place in the AL West. The Angels have not finished last in the league since 1999.

Love to hear what you think!
