Final Score in Anaheim: Angels 3, Rangers 8
Swap Rangers and Angels there and you are talking about the last 12 years of this divisional rivalry. Suddenly, though, the Angels are the team that sits around and waits for the five-run home run and Texas fields the team that exploits fundamentals to compensate for a scrawny lineup.
Halo "Catcher" Chris Iannetta allowed six stolen bases by Arlington runners and that far outweighed back-to-back leadoff home runs by Kole Calhoun and Mike Trout off of the overhyped-but-competent Yu Darvish. Grant Green got a hit in his Angels debut and had the shiniest glaringly reflective batting helmet standing there on first in the history of headlights. He finished the night 2 for 4 and fielded about as competently as Howie Kendrick would have.
And then there is the whole thing of actually having a comeptent bullpen. No, LA of Anaheim's is a mess. On a night that Garrett Richards had a quality start, three out of four Angels relievers allowed at least a run in the final two innings of the game. What a mess.
