LAst Night's Action: Angel Keep on Winning
LA Angels defeat Tampa Bay Rays 4-2. Backed by homers by Gary Matthews Jr and Vladimir Guerrero and a timely two-run single by Maicer Izturis, John Lackey effectively shut down the Tampa Bay Rays giving up two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts. For the Rays, Scott Kazmir who had an ERA of 1.4 coming into the game gave up only six hits with ten strikeouts. But those three runs he gave up was too much to overcome.
San Diego Padres defeat LA Dodgers 4-1. Andy LaRoche in his first game back with the big team hit his first homer of the year in his second at-bat. And that was it for the Dodgers. Perhaps they got too excited after the seven they scored Tuesday night?
