Panther of the Game: John Lackey
John Lackey looked fantastic tonight. His breaking ball looked vicious and delicious. Vlad played Robin to Lackey's Batman; but how many times does Robin need to be hit? Ridiculous.
John Lackey is the current leader in ERA for the American League. It has been 30 years since the Angels have had pitcher finish first in ERA since Frank Tanana. The only hick-up will be if Fausto Carmona pitches or not pitches tomorrow. Regardless, John Lackey has been nails. Also, it is time to start growing your playoff mustache.
