Pinpoint Pineiro: Angels 2, Tigers 0
Both Angels runs came in the third, on a Jeff Mathis (!)
RBI double* and Bobby Abreu's RBI groundout, making it a bit of a nail-biter in that regard; does it hold up? Kevin Jepsen (0.2 IP) and Fernando Rodney (the former Tiger handling the ninth) seemed to shake off the problems they had earlier and got 'er done. The win takes the Angels to .500 for the first time since the second game of the season, and a season-high fourth straight win.
Yes, I appreciate Brandon Wood getting a walk. He needs more of those.
This was the first Angel regular season game I attended this year. I missed the first Angel homestand because we took a road trip to Texas. We did not bring the Texas teams any luck. The Astros were 0-5 and the Rangers were 0-2 at the games we went to. We did see Vladimir Guerrero hit his first home run as a Ranger. I was wearing an Angel # 27 Guerrero shirt in the third row of box seats next to the Ranger on deck circle for that April 7th game vs Toronto.
