Pinpoint Pineiro: Angels 2, Tigers 0

Joel Pineiro didn't strike out a lot of guys but he held the allegedly high-powered Detroit offense in check over 7.1. Brandon Wood, used to being picked apart daily, walked, and we take some solace in that out of the nine hole. Good things from two guys I had no hopes for prior to the season.

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.

*See comments.

ESPN boxAngels recap

Labels: , ,

Jeff Mathis did not get an rbi with his 3rd inning double. Magglio Ordonez' throw to second deflected off Mathis' back into short centerfield allowing Howie Kendrick to score from third. Mathis took a couple steps towards third base after the deflection but then thought better of it. Ordonez was charged with an error.

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.
Corrected above.
