Angels Provide Fireworks On Final Visit To Metrodome: Angels 13, Twins 4

Kendry Morales' career-high six RBIs on a pair of three-run jacks was the offensive highlight in a day chock full of them, what with the Angels knocking 13 runs and making the Twins' pitching look like a AA squad. If Vlad or Torii Hunter's absences were less missed, I don't know how you'd show it; the Angels outscored the Twins 35-15 in the series, with Kendry homering in two of the three games (and three times overall). Even more impressive was the fact that both of today's longballs were from the right side of the plate, where Mike Scioscia has been somewhat loathe to play him. If anything, Robb Quinlan's playing time ought to be that much harder to come by, but with the two aforesaid absentees, he'll get some for a while.

Heck, pretty much everyone contributed offensively; Sean Rodriguez cued his second homer of the season, a two-run jack in the second to give the Angels a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The Halos chased Twins starter Glen Perkins after four, and even though Weaver still didn't come through with a quality start, he got the win thanks to the offensive thumping (and didn't really pitch that badly). Hope they saved some for the White Sox series.

So long, Metrodome: all I can say is I hope they don't schedule the Angels in the new park in April. Brr.
