The Angels won their EIGHTh straight game on Tuesday night. Joe "Skeletor" Girardi could only grumble...

In the EIGHT game winning streak the Angels have outscored their opponents 40-19; they have a .333 average with runners in scoring position and the pitching is carrying a 1.95 ERA.

•Look up gelding in the dictionary. that is what the Angels bats did to the Yankees in Anaheim on Tuesday night.

EIGHT Angels batters hit safely in the game. Albert Pujols hit HR number EIGHT to tie Mark Trumbo who promptly hit number nine.

•Look up gelding in the dictionary. That is what the Angels pitching did to the Yankees in Anaheim on Tuesday night.

Dan Haren struck out 7 batters in 7 innings, Scott Downs and Ernesto Frieri added 3 other Ks including a K of Robinson Cano by Mister Freeze with the bases loaded to end the game.

•Look up gelding in the dictionary. That is what the Angels gloves did with their gloves to the Yankees in Anaheim on Tuesday night.

Mike Trout and Peter Bourjos were dynamite in the field. On the postgame show, Pujols remarked "You gotta hit it over the fence to get it over their heads" and truer words were never more astutely spoken on a Fox Sports West postgame show...

It was Wednesday morning in New York City when the whole thing was finished, but it happened in Anaheim on Tuesday night. A gelding. Snip.
