ANAHEIM, CA - AUGUST 23: Alexei Ramirez #10 of the Chicago White Sox jogs to the dugout as members of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim surround and celebrate with teammate Peter Bourjos #25 of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim after Bourjos singled to left field to drive in teammate Erick Aybar #2 for the game-winning run in the ninth inning during the MLB game at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on August 23, 2011 in Anaheim, California. The Angels defeated the White Sox 5-4.
Peter Bourjos hits a bases loaded single with one out in the 9th inning to break a 4-4 tie. What was his approach? He was just looking for something up that he could hit and he got to it. He said so in a boring interview with FSN-West's Mark Gubicza on the field moments after an exciting win! But there is no buzzkilll on a great day that saw an afternoon press conference celebrate Jered Weaver, a night outing saw glimpses of the groundball greatness that Ervin Santana has become, a walkoff win and even a rare 4-3-5 double play on a night of three Angels defensive double plays.
Ervin Santana pitched well, not as spectacularly as his recent run might suggest but decent nonetheless. He allowed 4 runs in 8 IP on 9 hits and a walk. The co-ace of the staff struck out 4 and threw 115 pitches. Jordan Walden got the win with a powerful 1-2-3 9th inning that finished with two swinging strikeouts.
