Another Pettitte Pounding: Angels 14, Yankees 8
Eric Hinske homered twice, once off Weaver, a surprising concession to a left-handed batter; Weaver's generally done much better against them this year than in prior seasons. Hinske homered again against Darren Oliver, and while I remembered that Oliver had marked reverse splits in 2007 (and at times in 2008), he seems to have settled back to more typical lefty-vs-lefty performance.
Highlight of the game for me, though I missed virtually all of it due to preparations for a friend's birthday party: Brandon Wood's two-run jack in the fifth. More, please.
Not a quality start for Jered Weaver, but I'll take it, especially given how craptastic the rest of the rotation and/or bullpen has been.
