The Angels are 3 for 25 with runners in scoring position in two games against the Marlins. They had 13 hits. They had 12 before the first run scored. The pitching was not so bad from starter Ervin Santana, but Rich Thompson leaked a few, Michael Kohn was no great shakes and Bobby Cassevah couldn't really help much either.
It is easier to recall that short pitching list than the long list of empty bats, the kings of single hitting flat and empty batting average. The Angels individual batters left a combined 23 men on base. That is almost an entire roster. Only eight were left in scoring position because this is the swinging singles lineup. 11 singles and 2 doubles. Torii Hunter had four hits and did not ground into a double play - nope, he lined into one tonight.
Oh and the Marlins had a pretty awesome attendance of what looked like zero. And so will the Angels at home come September if they keep trotting out these weakling 90-foot jogsters.
