Matt Palmer Wins 11th, Angels Win 94th

Final Score in Anaheim: Angels 5, Rangers 0

Pitcher Matt Palmer threw 5 innings of 1 hit ball and got his 11th win as the Angels again tuned up for the playoffs with more Salt Lake Bees than Angels on the field at the end of the contest.

5 Angel batters had a single RBI and 5 relievers combined to shut out a Texas team going through the motions. Darren Oliver threw an inning and struck out the side. While there is no guarantee that Palmer will even make the ALDS roster, he leads the team in Winning Percentage.

On the night Kendry Morales won the Team MVP award and Jered Weaver won the newly-minted Nick Adenhart award for the team's top pitcher of the season, the Angels scored their 866th run, tying the 1979 squad for most ever by an Angels team. They scored 851 in their championship 2002 season.
