John Lackey was much better than we've seen him lately, and despite giving up a pair of runs he did it over eight innings, and hooray. Just a great cruise to the finish line for the boys tonight, something they haven't had much of lately.
Before I go: Torii Hunter had several great plays in center, including the last out of the ninth on a difficult running catch off Luke Scott's line drive to left-center with a man on first; miss it, and you've got men on second and third easy, and maybe another run across. I was commenting to Helen after the game how, despite my general aversion to owning player-specific memorabilia after having been burned by David Eckstein, I might think about a Hunter t-shirt. He's that good.
Happy 4th of July weekend, everybody.
And only 24 hours (I hope the bribe of some Angels tickets to the AT&T sales guy worked) until I get my new iPhone 3GS.
