LA Angels defeat Washington Nationals 3-2. Angel's starter John Lackey was nothing short of impressive. He went eight innings giving up two runs, one earned on six hits with six strikeouts. Trailing 2-1 the Angel's offense was nice enough to give Lackey two runs in the eighth inning to get him the win. The game got real sloppy in the end resembling a little league game with all the botched throws and sloppy defense. Closer Francisco Rodriguez notched his 31st save of the season. We're not even halfway through the baseball season and Rodriguez already has 31 saves. Yikes.
