LA Angels defeat Cleveland Indians 9-5. Mike Napoli hits his first grand slam in the second inning to get things rolling for the Angels. They didn't need to rely on a closer this time. But I'm sorta pissed at them since because of them the Dodgers game was blacked out on MLB.tv.

Arizona Diamondbacks defeat LA Dodgers 4-3. Things looked good when the Dodgers got a 1-0 lead, the first time they led in the series, but I think we all knew it wouldn't last. Hiroki Kuroda gave up four runs, two of which were earned. I'll say it again. The Dodgers need solid pitching to overcome their offensive deficiencies. They didn't get good pitching this series hence they got swept.
