LAst Night's Action: Angels Fall in Target Field Debut
Minnesota Twins defeat LA Angels 7-2. Angels’ starter Dan Haren’s (L, 8-12) propensity in giving up the long ball struck again when down 1-0 to the Twins he gave up a three-run homer to Jason Kubel in the third inning. The Angels only response was with runners on the corners ex-Twin Torii Hunter grounded into a double play that scored Alberto Callaspo. The Twins tacked on three more runs in the bottom of the fourth. The Angels despite getting seven hits off of Twins’ starter Brian Duensing (W, 7-1) only forced him to make 103 pitches in eight innings. Callaspo scored another run in the ninth inning, but it was too little too late.
Cincinnati Reds defeat LA Dodgers 3-1. Read my recap of the game.
Prince Sidelined. UCLA redshirt sophomore quarterback Kevin Prince has been sidelined from practice since August 10 with a strained oblique muscle and will not participate in the scrimmage game on Saturday. On Friday Prince was seen throwing the football to about 20-25 yards although he was still experiencing pain. It is still questionable whether Prince will be able to start in UCLA’s season opener at Kansas State on September 4, although backup true sophomore quarterback Richard Brehaut has been taking most of the snaps in practice in Prince’s absence.
