Final Score in Anaheim: Angels 3, Mariners 0
The Angels may be out of the division race but that doesn't mean they don't want the Seattle Mariners to have a good draft pick next June. A three game sweep of the Seattle Nine was completed by a punctual drubbing at the hands of Ace 2.0 Dan Haren. The righthander struck out 6 in 7 innings pitched. Hideki Matsui drove in a bases loaded run on catcher's interference in the 1st inning, Juan Rivera had an RBI single and Mike Napoli hit a solo insurance HR in the 8th.
Fernando Rodney converted a save with as big a cushion as Elias allows and Jordan Walden struck out 2 in one inning of work. In a sign of the times, today was a kids Back-to-school "Reminder Binder" giveaway. Forget childhood, it is time for the youth of Orange County to stick to a schedule.
