Joe Squanders Doesn't Stop Angels Broom in KC

Final Score in Missouri: Angels 9, Royals 6

Down by 4 runs to the Royals in Kansas City with only 7 outs to go, the Angels built a 3 run lead before they made 4 more outs. On a night when Joe Saunders ran out of gas after his 80th pitch (which is becoming quite the clockwork notion), the Angels made the longball matter. Maicer Izturis hit a 2-run HR early, Howie Kendrick hit a solo shot when the chips were down and Mike Napoli hit a blast in the 8th to tie it.

Saunders was on the ropes in a terrible 5th inning that saw 3 runs score with two outs. Hokie Joe then wimped in another run in the 6th and that was all, the boat that was to have sailed sunk, but Justin Speier, usually a bucket-hand on deck to stop the leaking, turned into a shutdown sunny day on the high seas as the SS Angel made a turn at the Comeback Sea. Speier got the win in relief and Brian Fuentes picked up his league leading 30th Save, becoming only the 2nd lefty in baseball history to have 30 Saves in each league.
