The price for Jason Vargas just went thru the roof! The lefty sub-ace pitched seven strong innings of two-hit ball with three walks, striking out seven and walking only three Rays.
On the offensive side, Luis Jimenez and his three hours of sleep was way more awake than most of the other Angels. He had a double and a run-scoring single while playing some pleasant D at the hot corner. Hank Conger doubled and walked in the game and scored an important insurance run on a Kole Calhoun base hit late.
Notice how the offensive contributors were all low-paid, no-names? Add J.B. Shuck who was 2 for 4 with a run scored.
The Halos take two out of three from St. Petersburg despite today's 31-pitch shake shake shaky ninth from Ernesto Frieri. It isn't even 2 PM and we are done for the day, wow, get some sleep on the plane ride to Milwaukee and Light That Baby Up!
