Pre1_medium 

 

Ervin Santana pitched 8 and one-third innings of 1 run ball, that lone run being a solo shot by Mike Carp on the final pitch the Angels righty would throw on a sunny SoCal afternoon.

Mark Trumbo hit a 470 solo homerun off of Felix Hernandez for the Angels first hit of the game, ending the perfect game, no hitter and shutout in one monster swing. The lead made for comfort among the Halo faithful considering the Ace-Like status Ervin has achieved among the faithful, despite no ladies teeshirts with his name and number being yet available in the team store.

The Angels added what turned out to be a BIG insurance run int he 7th inning when Howie Kendrick led off with a base hit and made it to 3B on a Torii Hunter hit and run. Vernon Wells has his second late game sloppy clutch single of the weekend to drive in the run.

Jordan Walden got the final two outs of the 9th inning for his 25th save of 2011. Ervin has now allowed 3 Earned Runs in his past 34 Innings pitched. Catcher Bobby Wilson is the CERA master of this team; Wilson coaxed a strikeout from Where's-Waldo to end the game and guide the Angels to take another series. Add in a Caught Stealing and let's hear it for the one tee shirt you will never find in the team store but who keeps producing the hits... #46, Beach Boy Bobby!
