Iannetta. Power. Together once again. Just in time to spend the off season as Winter Lovers.

Well, whaddaya know??? Jered Weaver tossed 6 decent innings, which Chris Iannetta and Grant Green parlayed at the plate into a surprising victory over the MLB juggernaut that is the Houston Astros. Final score 6 runs across the plate for the home boys, against only 2 runs plated for the opposition.

Mike Trout continues to feast on the Bases on Balls, although it might be a nice time to restart that whole phenomenon of base hits and such. His On Base Percentage climbs even ans his Batting and Slugging Averages dwindle. Just an observation.

Andrew Romine, our future ex third baseman, made the defensive gem of the evening, which should have done wonders for Weave's faith.

Oh, and for the record, in the 5th inning the Astros were K'd for the 1,388th time in this season. And Weaver is the dude who pushed them across the line.

So our Magic Number of Death hovers at 6. Let the Gif-fest begin!
