Final Score in Baltimore: Angels 11, Orioles 2

Despite major setbacks in their pennant chase over the weekend, the Angels salvaged the final game of their three game series against the might Baltimore Orioles with eleven runs on fifteen hits. As promised, Manager Mike Scioscia started his ace, Jered Weaver, on three days rest, and the king of the hometown discount responded with a 6-inning, 97-pitch lesson in dominating everyone not named Vladimir Guerrero, the ex-Angel great being responsible for the 2 runs Weaver gave up.

Halo SS Erick Aybar drank from the Camden Yards Cal Ripken Fountain of Awesome before the game and went 4 for 4 with 4 RBI, 5 runs scored and 2 HR. Howie Kendrick was 3 for 5 with 3 runs batted in, RBI of course being a meaningless stat, isn't it great to feel so superior over a stat, except when your team bats in more runs than your opponent in an important game. Then it means everything in the world.

Two things to take away from today's game: FIRST... that is what place in the standing The Angels would be in if they Vlad Guerrero as a L/R platoon DH with Bobby Abreu. SECOND... Go Mariners!
