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.

Howie Kendrick had a Homerun, a Triple and scored 2 runs. Vernon Wells had a double and raised his average up to .205 ...gosh will he bat his weight before season's end?

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.
