Mark Trumbo Gets Angels Rally Over Dodgers Started

The Freeway Series has historically pitted the Angels and Dodgers against each other prior to the start of the regular season. Since interleague play, it has lost its sizzle, but it was quite a thrill watching Angels prospects Mark Trumbo, Mike Trout and Hank Conger all chip in on group deflating of Jonathan Broxton in front of 19,000 paid attendance at the stolen land of Chavez Ravine and listening to Vin Scully bemoan the botching of a routine grounder by Dodger prospect Ivan DeJesus Jr.

It might be Vinny's last year, it might be Frank McCourt's last year and it might be new manager Don Mattingly's last year if he keeps wheeling out gasless Broxton to face major league hitters with the game on the line.

Meanwhile the future looks bright ahead for the guys wearing red as the top prospects list came to life in the ninth inning when, with one out, Mark Trumbo, slated to be the starting 1B for LA of Anaheim because of a growing foot on the part of Kendry(s) Morales, hit a single to RF and was close to being thrown out on a DP grounder off of the bat of Alexi Amarista. With runners on 1B and 3B, Mike Trout singled as the SS covered 2B and the game was tied. Amarista then scored form 3B on a sacrifice fly to the warning track by Hank Conger. Halos Heaven was in midseason form, with over 1,400 comments on the Game Thread here!

The winners host the losers in Orange County tomorrow. The future may be unwritten, but the pen seemed to be dipped in the Los Angeles ink well of Anaheim tonight.
