Torii Hunter's Bat Does The Talking

Final Score in Kansas City: Angels 7, Royals 2

Torii Hunter had a big night for the Angels in Kansas City after a too casual evening in the field yesterday. His 2-run single in the first inning set the tone for the game and gave the Halos a lead they would not relinquish. Later on as the crowd thinned out he hit a solo HR bomb to deep left field his 8th of the season to give the Angels a 7-1 cushion.

Scott Kazmir walked 4, gave up 5 hits, struck out only 2 all in 5 and 2/3 of shaky yet competent pitching to be expected of a #4/5 guy. Not brutal, not beautiful.

Left Fielder Juan Rivera left the game a few innings after fouling a ball off of one of his toes (he was not barefoot), as a precaution against assuming it was only a bruise, the Angels took X-Rays... that would make them precautionary X-Rays which revealed a contusion (medical speak for a bruis). Reggie Willits filled in for Juan in the field and even got a hit at the plate.

Three Questions:

  1. Who would the call up be if Juan Rivera goes on the DL?
  2. Will Francisco Rodriguez (Frankiestein K2) begin to be moved up Mike Scioscia's preferred reliever list?
  3. Is Scot Shields the mop of mops?
