Angels Win Batting Practice Session With Mariners

Final score in Anaheim: Angels 7, Mariners 6

After an exciting pitching match-up between two of the best hurlers in the league last night, an ugly match-up between Joe Saunders and Ryan Rowland-Smith produced a predictably ugly game. Both starters brought gas cans and lighters with them to the mound, leading to a 13-run slugfest between two offenses not normally associated with the word "slug." Rowland-Smith went up in flames early, allowing 5 earned runs without escaping the fourth inning, whereas Joe Saunders burned slowly as a 6-1 cushion evaporated into a narrow 6-5 lead after the sixth. Josh Bard tied the game in the seventh with a solo homer off of Kevin Jepsen, but Juan Rivera struck back with a solo blast of his own in the bottom half of the frame. Rodney and Fuentes teased the Mariners with a couple of late base runners, but mercifully held the lead anyways.

Texas tried to get one too many innings from Cliff Lee tonight and lost their game in extra innings, leaving the Angels to pick up a game in the standings. Look what can happen when the Angels actually get run production from someone other than Torii Hunter. Thanks, Seattle. We'd like to see you again tomorrow
