Napoli's Homer Wins It Late: Angels 2, Diamondbacks 1A surprisingly strong start for John Lackey — though maybe not when you consider the opponent — he struck out nine over seven innings, a hopeful sign for the future. Mike Napoli's ninth inning homer was the difference, and Brian Fuentes put the game away.
Dodgers Bow To King Felix: Mariners 5, Dodgers 1Was Eric Milton worth activating for this? Hard to say; he did strike out seven, but he gave up an equal number of hits, including four runs, one of them on a two-run homer to Ken Griffey, Jr. I missed both this game and the Angels game as I was at a barbecue at a friend's house, though I did manage to hear the deciding third inning on the road; this one especially was a good one to miss. Joe Torre apparently agrees, as he's setting the team up for a four-man rotation thanks to upcoming days off.
Adrian Beltre To Have Shoulder SurgeryPer the Tacoma News-Tribune, Adrian Beltre will have bone spurs on his non-throwing (left) shoulder removed, a process that will keep him off the field 4-8 weeks.
"I've never been 100 per cent since surgery last year to fix this," Beltre said. "They said there was a small chance the spur would grow back. My luck, I was one of those whose spur came back - and it's bigger than last year. It hurts more."He played in last night's game against the Dodgers.
