Kendry And Vlad Hit 2 Homers Each; Angels Beat Rays

Final Score in Anaheim: Angels 8, Rays 7

Kendry Morales and Vladimir Guerrero each hit 2 Homeruns as the Angels beat the Rays in a Fantasyland Slugfest.

Vlad's 2nd of the night broke a 7-7 tie. One dude in the stands with a sharpie and sloppy penmanship whipped together a #400 on the back of a sign he had brought to the ballpark and will probably be on every Angel highlight reel until Vlad hits #500 in 4 years.

Sean O'Sullivan gave up 6 runs in 4.2 innings, the shakiest being 3 in the 5th. Jason Bulger gave up a run, but Valddy got it back.

Kendry's monster night saw him hit his 24th and 25th HRs

Kevin Jepsen won in relief and his 2 IP were night and day - one saw him throw 22 pitches, the next just 14 including a strikeout looking to end the 8th. Brian Fuentes started out the 9th with a weak grounder from Carl Crawford and K of Evan Longoria.

Then Ben Zobrist hit a head-hanging bomb to the Left Field corner which Juan Rivera caught practically sitting on the short wall. Ballgame. It was Fuentes' 32nd save and first in over a week.
