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.
