Panther of the Game:
After jumping to a six run lead on, frankly, a GIFT fill-in pitcher with a lousy knuckler, the Angels held off the World Champions and their lethal offense, most deliciously stabbing Headcase Bobby Alky Jenks ? the Angel that never was ? with a stake thru his fat heart by Tim Salmon, the greatest Angel of all time.
I?m starting to notice Timmy stepping it up at the plate whenever Black Magic is on the mound. Due to the evaporating lead and the drain on any seasonal momentum that it would have meant, this game was, suddenly in the middle innings, THE must-win game of the season. And we wanted it more than the Lazy Fat Pollocks did and we got it.
