Angels WIN

Panther of the Game:
Orlando Cabrera

Many Angels were pantheresque tonight against a Minneosta team that pretty much handed us the game after squeaking a few runs by an otherwise dominant John Lackey.

Figgy was 2 for 6 (his liner off of Luis Castillo's glove, initially ruled a hit, was revised to an error after the game was over) with a run scored and a ribby, Lackey, Frankie and Shields were dominant, and even JoMo was 2 for 3 with a walk.

But Orlando Cabrera walked in the 1st inning and scored, doubled to lead off the 5th and scored, doubled with one out in the 7th and singled home the winning run in the 11th.

One of Cabfare's two outs was a long flyout that allowed Jose Molina to move from 2nd to 3rd in the 2nd inning. The Angels taxi had plenty of CABFARE to make it home when it mattered most, all in time to watch a super-sized fireworks show under the light of the Halo.
