Two Games

Slaughter 1: Dodgers 16, Rockies 6

Lazily on during yesterday's barbecue, the Dodgers pummeled the Rockies in the seventh for eight runs; yet, neither side homered whatsoever. Eric Stults, who struggled early, got chased in the fifth, and the Win Fairy bonked Will Ohman instead.

Slaughter 2: White Sox 17, Angels 3

The point was supposed to be the Angels getting both Ervin Santana and Vlad Guerrero back on the field at the same time, but this team has a way of dashing high expectations almost every time. Vlad was 0-for-4, Santana didn't make it out of the second (and in fact failed to retire a batter), and the Angels once again showed why the mantra of health isn't quite enough. Santana's been called a two-pitch starter, which is to say he has nothing to fall back on when his stuff isn't there, and yesterday that flaw got exposed as it hasn't in quite a while.

Incidentally, why is it that both the Yahoo and ESPN play-by-play get the second inning of that game wrong? Neither shows Santana exiting the game, nor two of the inning's four outs.
