Howie Kendrick Trade Value Rockets in 5 RBI Afternoon Angels Win

 

Final Score in Los Angeles of Anaheim: Angels 9, Indians 3

The Cleveland Indians scored 45 runs in their previous 5 games, but they only managed 1 in 7 innings against Angels starter John Lackey on Wednesday afternoon. Don't blame the buzzkill of reigning Cy Young winner Cliff Lee being traded along with Ben Francisco to the reigning world champion Phillies for prospects. Lackey was sharp after a funny first inning where he hit two batters. The Angels ace mixed in 4 Walks with his 8 strikeouts and only allowed 3 hits.

Angels 2B Howie Kendrick had a 3 for 4 afternoon with 5 RBI, including his 6th HR of the season. When it became apparent that the Angels would not part with Shortstop Erick Aybar at the trade deadline, Kendrick's name has floated to the top of trade talks in volving the Angels. He certainly upped his value on a warm cloudless day in Southern California, where everything looked easy.

Also on Fire was Kendry Morales who had 2 hits, 2 RBI and the only Angels double of the afternoon. It was Kendry's 60th RBi of the season, the ANels 60th Win of the year and put them 3 games ahead of the Rangers pending the oucome of that team's game against Justin Verlander and the Tigers in Arlington tonight.
