Payback, Almost: Dodgers 9, Phillies 2

Okay, so Jayson Werth, the ex-Dodger, stole second, third, and home in the same inning and against the same pitcher and catcher yesterday.

Never mind.

The Dodgers almost made it all back up, what with Juan Pierre nabbing two bags in the sixth, but even by that point, the Dodgers had pretty much ended this game by pouncing on Jamie Moyer, annihilating him in the fourth with James Loney's first homer of the year, a three-run jack, and a sac bunt by Randy Wolf that actually brought Matt Kemp to the plate from second base. You tell me, but that was entertainment enough for the whole night. Of course, that's not to deny Casey Blake his ninth inning glory (a two-run jack off Clay Condrey), but dayam.

And Then, Something Wonderful Happened: Angels 8, Red Sox 4

Because I was busy doing actual work and/or listening to the tail end of the Dodgers game, I missed the first couple innings of Matt Palmer's work, which was unremarkable and, frankly, expected; okay, here he goes, buh bye, and thanks for all the innings. Only, not so fast, as he went right back to being the unexpected Superman from the third on, retiring the last 19 batters he faced in order to make his first major league complete game victory. The Angels turned it around on Mike Napoli's three-run homer to the deepest part of center field in the fifth that capped a five-run inning to give the Halos a lead they would not relinquish.

And Matt Palmer, in what is likely his last start for a while, got his fourth major league win. Mang.

Update: Something I forgot to add was that Daniel Bard made his major league debute for the Red Sox, and pretty much had his way with the Angels, outside of a walk and a hit. He's the son of a friend of my father-in-law's, so I wish him success when he's not facing the Angels.

And, even better, the Angels scored *eight* runs.
My life is all about typos.
The Sox announcers were certaintly trumpeting Bard. That's about the time I tuned in when he came in and was about the only pleasant thing for them to talk about. And props to Palmer - I am certainly eating my words I posted prior to his first start.
