While Scott Kazmir was pitching in nearby Rancho Cucamonga for the A-League Quakes, his major league stand-in turned out to be the fall guy - Matt Palmer took the loss in thumping and a half at the bats of the Oakland A's (speaking of single A teams). Hideki Matsui hit a solo HR but I am just mentioning that in the hopes that a million of his fans in Japan decide to search for his name on the internet tomorrow morning.

OTHER ANGELS HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Juan Rivera hit a solo HR but nobody in Japan was searching his name on the web.
  • Terry Evans appeared as a late inning defensive replacement wearing Darin Erstad's jersey #17 - the first time an Angel has worn that jersey since Erstad's last game as an Angel in September of 2006.
  • The Angels fielded three players named BOBBY on the field at the same time: Bobby Abreu, Bbby Cassevah and Bobby Wilson. Is that a major league record? I say yes- look it up and prove me wrong.
  • Coincidentally (or ironically for you Robertologists), this Bobby record was possible because of Robb Quinlan's demotion.
  • Bobby Cassevah made his major league debut in the game wearing Darren Oliver's jersey #38 with no seasons in between D.O.'s departure from Anaheim.

LOSER LIMERICK

There once was a pitcher named Palmer
Who looked slightly like Jeffrey Dahmer
Cucamonga took Scott
for a short rehab spot
But nobody in Anaheim stayed Calmer
