Angels Winning Even In Mop-Up Mode: Angels 4, A's 2
The Angels knocked out Dana Eveland in the fifth, following a two-out Vlad Guerrero double, but even that was more likely the A's just deciding to limit the number of miles on their rookie pitcher.
With their 96th win, the 2009 Angels now have the third best record in franchise history, with no chance of advancing past that. Congratulations, guys, it's been a terrific year. And congratulations to Mike Scioscia for being the first manager to send his teams to the postseason six times in his first ten years managing the team.
