Joe Saunders Looks Good In Return, Angels Avoid Sweep By Tigers



FINAL SCORE IN ANAHEIM:  Angels 4, Tigers 2

Making his first start in 19 days, Joe Saunders returned to his 2008 all-star form by beating the Detroit Tigers.  Saunders went 5 innings, giving up 4 hits while striking out 6, with his only mistake being a 2-run 5th inning home run to Adam Everett.

Offensive highlighted included a first inning 2-run homer run from Torii Hunter, his first since coming off the disabled list.  The Angels also took advantage of the Detroit battery by swiping 5 bases, two by Chone Figgins.  Figgins also added a run scoring hit in the 4th inning when he singled home Gary Matthews, Jr.

With the win, the Angels snapped a 3-game losing streak and avoided their first home sweep in over 2 years.
