Weird weather in Arizona called Sunday's Angels - Dodgers meetup after 5 and a half innings. No ties in baseball? This one ended 1-1 when a small hailstorm, followed by a big rainstorm. Dan Haren, perfect thru 4, allowed 1 run on 2 hits with 5 Ks on the day. Here is a video report...A Mark Trumbo sac fly in the first inning scored Kole Calhoun for the only Halo run. Albert Pujols also had a hit in that inning. Andrew Romine had a hit in the 5th inning after Chris Capuano had retired 11 consecutive Angels. Haren had 5 strkeouts in 5 IP with no walks, surrendering one run on two hits.
The Angels visited the spring home of their crosstown rivals at Camelback Ranch for the 2012 debut of Vin Scully. The game was broadcast on KCAL, the free-teevee home of the former Brooklyn National League team that calls repossessed land in Chavez ravine near Chinatown home. This was the final Arizona meeting between the two clubs who play again for Spring pretends April 2,3 and 4 and then for real in May and June (eleven contests in all, six that count); by May the Dodgers will most likely have a new owner as Frank McCourt needs to dump the team for a divorce settlement no later than April 30.
