Kendry Morales Injured on Walk Off Grand Slam

Yeah it has been that kind of season in Anaheim this year. Torii Hunter was hit in the hand and left the game for x-rays. In extra innings, Kendry Morales is tackled at home plate by celebrating teammates after hitting a walk-off Grand Slam and his knee buckles. The preliminary report is ankle sprain. Brian Fuentes got the win in relief after pitching a scoreless 10th inning. Jered Weaver pitched 7 innings of 1 unearned run. Eric Karros tried to pretend he was a witness to history, assuring the Fox Saturday baseball crowd that there will soon be an edict to quell such celebrations throughout major league baseball.

  • Sam Miller of the OC Register tweets that Torii's X-Rays are negative.
  • Rangers lose, Angels now trail Texas by 3 Games, but Oakland is now in first place, a half game ahead of the Rangers. Angels are 3.5 games out of 1st place and 3 games below .500...
  • Rob McMillin reports that the Angels have announced they are banning Home Plate dogpiles for walk-off celebrations. He also posted a picture of Kendry's ambulance leaving the stadium.

Final Score in Anaheim Saturday: Mariners 1, Angels 2011.
