Scott Kazmir Tuneup is Angels Win #96

Final Score in Oakland: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 4, Oakland Athletics 2

Pitcher Scott Kazmir looked sharp in his short outing Saturday afternoon. He allowed 3 hits and a walk in 5 IP, striking out 3. Of his 76 pitches, 53 were strikes and he looked ready for his next start a week from tomorrow in Fenway Park. Matt Palmer was impressive in 2 innings of relief, striking out 3 with only 28 pitches thrown.

Angels benchwarmers drove in all four runs, with a Gary Matthews RBI double in the 4th inning complementing Robb Quinlan's run-scoring single in the 2nd and a double in the 4th that scored Matthews. Brian Fuentes pitched a scoreless 9th for his 48th Save of the season, 2nd all time for an Angel pitcher single season mark to Francisco Rodriguez last season. Fuentes leads the majors in Saves.
