Brewers Use Braun to Slam Angels, 12-2

Final score from Angel Stadium of Anaheim: Milwaukee Brewers 12, Los Angeles Angels 2

The Los Angeles Angels showed little of the baseball that earned them an 11-3 record on their roadtrip, as Angels pitching faltered and their hitting couldn't get going. Joe Saunders allowed six runs over 5 2/3 innings, highlighted by a Ryan Braun grand slam in the 3rd inning. Torii Hunter did his best Team England impression in the 4th when a Casey McGehee flyball bounced off his glove over the fence for a home run to make it 6-2. But Angels reliever Trevor Bell promptly allowed four earned runs on five hits over 1 1/3 innings, putting the game out of reach. Brewers starter Randy Wolf got out of early jams and finished strongly, allowing two runs on three hits over 7 innings.

More bad news came for the Angels in the 7th when McGehee took out his frustration at being hit by a pitch by taking out Erick Aybar on a late slide to break up a double play. Aybar needed to be assisted off the field. A hyper-extended knee is the diagnosis at this time, and he is considered day-to-day.
