LAst Night's Action: It's Not 1959 Anymore
Chicago White Sox defeats LA Dodgers 6-1. Thanks to being pulled over in Century City on Pico for a fix-it ticket, I missed the first hour of the game. To really pour it on, the game only lasted 2:05. It was a pitcher's duel until the eighth inning when Derek Lowe left everything up and the Sox took him to task. The Sox scored four in the inning to take a 6-1 lead. Against Mark Buehrle, the only Dodger fight was a solo homer shot by Delwyn Young in the bottom of the fifth. Even my cat has more fight in him.
LA Angels defeat Washington Nationals 8-3. Across the country, the Angels are giving the Nationals a devil of a time. They jumped on the Nat's throats in the first inning scoring six runs. Meanwhile Jon Garland just pitched with no pressure going seven innings and giving up the three runs on six hits. The Angels have now won five straight games.
If you thought the six runs the Angels scored in the first was bad, check out what happened to Red's starter Bronson Arroyo up in the tundra. Against the Toronto Blue Jays, Arroyo pitched one inning and four batters in the second inning giving up 10 runs on 11 hits. Arroyo becomes only the sixth pitcher in major league history to give up at least 10 earned runs while getting no more than three outs. Toronto won the game 14-1.
