This One's For You, Nick: Angels 11, Rangers 0
Eleven wins, boys. Let's get cracking.
Touching: the team ran out to the Nick Adenhart photo in center field to touch it as a man.
By handing Texas a loss, it erodes Boston's magic number to one; the Sawx lost 11-5 to Toronto.
Update 9/29: BTF: "Angels Trail Rangers By Only Nine Games in 5th Order Standings!!!" Best comment on that thread, by Shredder (#18):
I didn't see the celebration last night because Extra Innings always cuts away right when the game ends, but my favorite part was Fuentes tossing his empty over the outfield wall. Probably won't be the only thing that leaves his hand and goes over the wall in the next couple weeks.The Angels are still winning the division according to BPro's third-order standings, but by a much thinner margin (subtract nine from the win column).
