I have nothing intelligible to say about this game other than my usual grumbling about how the team looks simply exhausted after their 50-games-in-52-days stretch; Lackey blew up for four runs in the fifth, immediately after the Angels offense got him a huge 9-2 lead with a six-run fourth. I did not care, however, because Helen rented a suite and we watched the whole thing as a surprise birthday party. Being around friends, some of whom I haven't seen in over a year, and being thoroughly (too, in fact, as I came home with a pounding headache) lubricated with essence of grape, the evening in the seats was far better than the play on the field.
And what the hell happened to Kevin Jepsen, anyway?
