Angels Win on Hank Conger 9th Inning Pinch Hit HR

BIG SMILE ! ! ! - Mark Hirsch

Seattle Pilots of Milwaukee give one up late to the Halos.

Final Score in Cream City: ANGELS 6, BREWERS 5

Jerome Williams pitched a quality start - allowing three runs in six innings. Buddy Boshers opened the door, putting two men on in the bottom of the seventh of a 4-3 Angels lead in Milwaukee and Michael Kohn let 'em in.

It was suddenly 5-4 and it is Saturday night and I was almost out the door... but with two outs in the ninth inning Josh Hamilton smacked a pinch-hit double and Hank Conger came in to bat in the pitcher's spot. Two out, bottom of the ninth, tying run on 2B, relief pitcher with an ERA under two and that door out to what is happening in the world would have to wait as Conger walloped his first career pinch hit home run to give the Angels the lead.

So my postgame headline went from "Kohn & Boshers Blows Lead, Brewers Blitz Angels" to "Angels Win on Hank Conger 9th Inning Pinch Hit Home Run". Nice ring to it, eh?

So then Ernesto Frieri came in to get the Save in the bottom of the ninth. Light That Baby Up.
