While no-hitting the Mariners, all of the Angels' players and coaches wore No. 45 Skaggs jerseys, and after the game, they all were removed and carefully placed on the pitcher's mound. Before the game, Skaggs' mother, Debbie, threw a strike to Andrew Heaney for the ceremonial first pitch.

Los Angeles Angel fans place flowers, hats and mementos for pitcher Tyler Skaggs at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.

In between those two melancholy, magical moments, the Angels played their heavy hearts out in their first home game since their beloved pitcher's death.

When he came up again in the first inning with the bases loaded, Trout roped a two-run double to left field.

The Angels also celebrated Skaggs' life in a ceremony prior to playing Seattle in the first series since the All-Star break. Mike Trout contributed six RBIs, including a 454-foot homer on the first pitch he saw.

Afterward, every LA player stripped the Skaggs jerseys from their backs and laid them on the mound. and, yeah, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. "But for a lot of us, seeing each other again is nice". A picture of Skaggs was also included on the center-field wall and a video montage was provided on the scoreboard. But that the mound where that miracle unfurled was within moments blanketed in Skaggs' No. 45 made this something that's going to reach across the decades and grab us every now and then.

A fan memorial outside the front entrance continues to grow.

There were cheers and tears Friday night at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., before, during and after one of the most touching games in major league history.

"In a sense, it did open up the wounds a little bit, because it reminded us of the reality that Tyler is gone, we really miss him, and we would rather have him here", Angels manager Brad Ausmus said. Most of the Angels saw the memorial in person for the first time when they returned from a hard road trip and the ensuing All-Star break. You just hurt so much for Tyler's family.

"It's been a tough week. we just support each other". "That's fine. We're human beings". Forty-five will always be in my mind.
