Final Score in Detroit Rock City: Angels 11 Tigers 6
Jered Weaver pitched six innings of one-run ball, Ian Stewart was a home run shy of the cycle and Albert Pujols hit his 497th career home run. Not to be outdone Howie Kendrick hit his first and second homer of the season and the Angels stomped on the Tigers early and often.
The Halos then held off the tabby cats as reliever Josh Wall allowed five runs without recording an out in the seventh inning. Weaver was at 100 pitches but look at how there is just some weird karma there with whoever relieves him no matter the situation.
Wall as called up before the game and may be headed back down.
Nine of the Angels thirteen hits went for extra bases including two doubles by Mike Trout.
Alleged MVP Miguel Cabrera was held hitless in front of the hometown fans that had to ignore WAR to justify the Miggy hardware two seasons in a row. Meanwhile Tiger fans got a delicious serving of hot Trout - you keep your trophies, we'll keep the W. David Freese was a late scratch with a quad strain and the nine-spot-hitting Stewart manned the hot corner with ease. John McDonald played exceptional defense late at 2B as Howie batted cleanup as the DH and did one hell of an impersonation as a big time hitter.
Quick turnaround with a morning game tomorrow so light that baby up and we will see you - AND OUR TEAM BEGINNING THE DAY AT .500 - tomorrow!
