A late Mike Napoli HR turned out to be the difference, but the result in the win column was exactly the same as the two previous nights: just another road W.
After a first ever sweep of the Cardinals in their crumbling stadium on stolen land, the Dodgers were humiliated by their former tenants, the superior Los Angeles Angels of Ax-Kicking Anaheim. The Angels swept the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium for the first time in interleague history. Mike Scioscia thus retained his paisoano pwnage of Joe Torre. Remember him?
The Angels wrap up a 14-game Road Trip going 11-3. A big thanks to U2 for scheduling that concert at Anaheim Stadium just when the Halos needed to hop on a plane to get the juices flowing. Whether or not the streets had no name, the Angels won wherever they roamed.
Angels starters allowed 5 runs in 20 IP against the Dodgers. The Angels outscored the Dodgers 20-8 in the three game series. The Angels hit 4 HR in the series. The Dodgers had 2 solo shots. The teams face off again for three games in Anaheim beginning a week from Tuesday.
