Final Score in Oakland: Angels 6 Athletics 1

Pre1_medium

Paging Tom Selleck and the cop from the Village People - if either of you are missing your mustache, Angels 3B Alberto Callaspo appears seems to be cultivating it as a rally 'stache, but his bat ain't waiting. AC scored the first run of the game on a Mike Trout single, drove in Kendrys Morales with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning and singled in Erick Aybar with some insurance in the eighth inning. In the ninth, Morales broke it open with a two-out double that led to two runs scoring.

Meanwhile an economical Zack Greinke allowed a measly solo homerun for his on ER in seven IP, walking two and striking out four in the process. Scott Downs got his twentieth Hold of the season and Jason Isringhausen mocked the late insurance with a 1-2-3 ninth. The three Halo arms combined on a four-hitter against a Wild Card opponent in the Gold and Green. In a sub-sixty degree chill the boys in red gave a cold second straight loss to an A's team that had previously won nine straight.

Clutch and Cool.
