Welcome back to baseball. The Angels came out of the second half gates firing, led by Yunel Escobar, Kole Calhoun and a gem from Hector Santiago. I'm still in rural southeast Kansas, back home tomorrow night, reporting from afar (and on my phone), so luckily this was an easy one.
Santiago was nails, throwing seven innings, giving up just five hits and zero runs. Get that trade value up! Meanwhile the Halos were propped up by some early RBIs from Escobar and Calhoun, and the score remained at 2-0 Angels until they blew it wide open in the seventh.
Multiple hits, including some insurance runs courtesy of the aforementioned Escobar and Calhoun, jacked the score up to 7-0 good guys. Throw in that great start, and some dope Mike Trout defense, and you are on your way.
The bullpen would do the rest and get the home team a groovy win on a groovy Rally Monkey night. This is a nice way to kick off the second half of a grueling season. The little things, like dominant wins, are what it's all about.
