Pickoff Moves

Angels Suffer Motown Sweep: Tigers 5, Angels 1

Jered Weaver was masterful through four and then imploded in the fifth, giving up four runs, all earned; you expect him to have a bad game here and there, and this was one of them. Even after yesterday, he still has a 132 ERA+. It's not enough to put him on the ERA+ leaderboard, where you must be at least 180 tall to get on the ride, but it'll do for an Angels pitching staff that needs some help.

The Angels didn't get a man so far as second base until the ninth, when they finally got to a tiring Verlander, scratching out their lone run on a pair of singles from Maicer Izturis and Erick Aybar. This looks to be a mediocre team, the way they're playing, with the record they deserve. Next stop: Boston at home. Gah.

Ethier's Two-Homer Day Highlights Pirates Sweep: Dodgers 9, Pirates 3

Despite some odd tics by Joe Torre — Russell Martin went 0-for-5 in the two hole, his average shrinking to .250 — the Dodgers' offense teed off against Pirates pitching, the victims in this case being Jeff Karstens, the former Yankee, and Joel Hanrahan, the former Dodger prospect. But lest the church bells ringing deafen your sensibilities, George Sherrill had another bad outing, giving up two runs while making only two outs. It's running out of time for him to claim that the season's early.
