Angels Brooms Keep Streak Alive; Brian Fuentes Nails 18th Save

Final Score in San Francisco: Angels 4, Giants 3

Wow .. every Angel fan seemed to give up on this one because Mike Scioscia's nonconformist lineup or because of Tim Lincecum's press...

The Angels beat Tim Lincecum at home and swept the Giants in the process. How? By rolling back prices on select models. Oh was that a commercial in the middle of my postgame wrapup? Sorry, it is just that Fox telecasts interrupt the game with a promotion practically every pitch. Sickening. Almost as bad as their terrible camerawork - seriously, the cameramen (or women) have got to be drunk, incompetent or nepotistic hires. When I see you guys at Fresca's before Friday's game in Anaheim I will be sure to oui oui in your beer.

The Angels are on a six game winning streak but that did not stop Angels fans from whining about Mike Scioscia's lineup, and yet they beat one of baseball's bet. Back to back pinch hits in the top of the 8th inning by Torii Hunter and Vladimir Guerrero allowed Chone Figgins to smack a double and Erick Aybar and Juan Rivera to follow with RBI singles for the Angels to take the lead for good. The bullpen hel the lead with a little dama, but it ended up allowing Justing Speier to get yet another micrometer of redemption for his sins earlier in the season.

Brian Fuentes got his MLB-leading 18th save!

Jeff Mathis blocked the plate on a great throw to home by Robb Quinlan (whose start in LF was was roundly criticized on Halo chatrooms, messageboards, blogs and sports bars) to spare a 3-run Giant lead in the bottom of the 7th.

Matt Palmer remained unbeaten! Erick Aybar and Maicer Izturis played amazing defense to ensure that!

It is the longest winning streak of the season for the Angels, the first time that they are 6 games over .500 in 2009 and will make for a joyful plane ride home to see the light of the Halo home at the Big A.
