In Toronto Tuesday night, Mark Trumbo became the first Angel to ever have five hits and score five runs in a game, Josh Hamilton drove in four runs, the Angels had 18 hits and ...OH CANADA!!!
Erick Aybar started the scoring in the top of the first inning with a solo home run, his sixth of the season. Hamilton hit his twentieth of the year and it only seems like he has hit about six homers, right? Chris Iannetta hit his ninth home run and every Angels starter had at least one hit except an 0-6 Colin Cowgill.
Jerome Williams had a four run cushion to work from before he ever threw a pitch but far be it from him to accept a gift. It was 4-4 after two complete with Jerome looking his recent sweaty bad self on the mound. But the bats just kept coming, putting up a run in the third to take the lead for good and three runs in the fifth and six innings. Jays starter Mark Buerhle bore the brunt of all that, allowing eight earned runs.
These were the bats we thought we'd see all season. Kinda bittersweet but we dine on bluebird tonight. Light That Baby Up!
