A glimmer of light for the Angels' 2012 season blew out like a candle on a birthday cake for an old man who didn't want to think about the missed opportunities of a squandered life.
Mike Trout was played silly by Yu Darvish, striking out on junk while he tried to be all pro taking hittable pitches. Trout was 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts and 4 left on base. Torii Hunter had the lone run batted in for the Angels with a slow groundout scoring pinch-running Peter Bourjos from 3B.
Bourjos was pinch running because these games count so importantly that Mike Scioscia brings in pinch runners in the sixth inning. What a fat clown. Too little too late Bozocia. You patiently played with your pud for months on end when this team needed AB-by-AB attention and all you have to show for it is a sore-handed offseason starting in less than two weeks.
