Good game that went to the dogs late...
After being pulled from his previous start, Angels 4th starter Ervin Santana appeared on regular rest and showed no signs of any damage. In 4 IP Magic had 4 K, 0 ER, allowing 2 hits and a walk.
The Rockies won 4-3 in the bottom of the 9th when Francisco Wolverine Rodriguez proved Jerry Dipoto right for having waived him form the 40-Man roster last November. He got the L in allowing 3 runs on 4 hits in 1.2 IP. Jason Isringhausen allowed a run in 1 IP to lessen his campaign of making the team out of spring training. Relievers LaTroy Hawkins and Kevin Jepsen each pitched a scoreless inning.
Howie Kendrick hit a 3-run HR in the 3rd inning for all the Angels runs in the game, one of 6 hits allowed by Rockies pitching. How is Albert Pujols supposed to break Hack Wilson's single season RBI record with Hotshot Howie unclogging the bases?
