Street Mortal, Bats Silent, LOBsters Abound in Angels Loss

60th Loss of the Season.

Mike Scioscia brought Huston Street in to pitch the ninth inning of a 1-1 tie game and the Halo closer ended up granting Ryan Rua's first major league home run.

That was the ballgame on a Sunny Fan Appreciation Sunday that saw the Halos lethargically leave men on base and, in doing the LOBster shuffle, obfuscating a stellar pitching performance by the Post Garrett Richards All Bullpen Game.

Cory Rasmus was good, Mike Morin was great, Fernando Salas gave up a run, Kevin Jepsen took forever to get out of his own mess, Joe Smith was sublime and Huston Street was lost and got the loss. Yoslan Herrera mopped up without allowing a run but it was a done deal.

The Halos had four hits and three walks - two intentional - but left six men on base. The game can be summed up thusly: Kole Calhoun was 0 for 4 with three Ks and without Kole on base this offense is about half as dynamic as is needed. THere, there's your insight. Let's go sweep Oakland.
