Pulled Up: Angels 5, A's 1
Speaking of Rodriguez, Mike Scioscia called for him to bunt in the fourth after a leadoff double by Mike Napoli. Why? There was no chance of a double play ball.
Update: Bob Timmermann points out that with tonight's win, the Mariners have an elimination number of one. They will be the first team eliminated from any division race in baseball.
Still, it was a mighty impressive effort. I can only recall him getting to a 3-ball count once all evening. There might have been a couple more, but not many.
It was a fun night at the ballpark, and I made it back home to Pasadena before 10:30.
