Santiago Finally Gets W in Angels Blowout of Texas

LOTTA NUMBERS UP THERE... - Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Light That Baby Up

Final Score in Arlington: Angels 15 Rangers 6

...and it wasn't even that close...

The Angels scored four runs in the fist inning, six runs in the second inning and three runs in the third inning as they coasted to a 15-6 drubbing of the Rangers in front of the Horse-headed hayseed home crowd deep in the heart of Texas.

Despite David Freese going 0 for 5 and Howie Kendrick going 0 for 4, the Halos piled on early and often against Rangers starter Colby Lewis. Mike Trout had four hits (three singles and a three-run home run), Kole Calhoun had four hits (a homer shy of the cycle with an extra single thrown in there) and Josh Hamilton rubbed the noses of the booing Arlington haters into their own bitter residue with three doubles.

Newly-named AL All Star Erick Aybar had three RBI on only one hit as his groundouts were timed to bring runners home, Erstad-style. Heck, even Hank Conger had two hits!

Santiago has pitched better but never with Old Fortuna visiting like it did on Thursday night. He allowed two runs in the bottom of the first inning and it was looking like nothing might be safe. But Lewis allowed 13 runs in less than three innings pitched, so give Ron Washington an assist.

Hector allowed solo runs in the fourth and sixth when it was all over but the pitch count. Cory Rasmus and Drew Rucinski, both called up today, mopped up late as we LIT THE HALO for the evening!
