LAst Night's Action: Angels Rally But Lose in 12
Texas Rangers defeat LA Angels 2-1. Losers of four of their last five games, the Rangers were desperate to get a win. They got the scoring started when Julio Borbon came home on Michael Young’s sacrifice fly ball to left field. That lead would hold until the seventh inning when Mike Napoli led off the bottom of the inning with a home run. The stalemate held until the 12th inning when a passed ball by catcher Jeff Mathis allowed Jeff Francoeur to score from third for the Rangers 2-1 lead.
San Diego Padres defeat LA Dodgers 3-1. Read my recap of the game.
Kings’ TV and Radio Schedule. The Kings will have all but five of their 82 games this season televised either locally or nationally with every game being broadcasted on AM 1150 KTLK. The five games Kings’ fans will miss are: November 6 hosting Nashville Predators; December 18 at Nashville Predators; December 29 at Phoenix Coyotes; February 2 at Edmonton Oilers; March 9 at Detroit Red Wings.
It’s interesting because usually games played in Canada are tougher to broadcast, so the fact only one Canadian game will not be aired is interesting.
Also interesting is that for their games at the Honda Center against the Ducks, the Kings will be using their broadcast team of Bob Miller and Jim Fox to air the games. Usually they defer to the Ducks broadcast team to air the games, however this season only the penultimate game of the season in Anaheim will be aired that way.
All 70 local broadcasts can be seen on Fox Sports West.
