Santana Goes All The Way And Slays Jays On 10K's: Angels 8, Blue Jays 3
The offense managed to beat the snot out of Ricky Romero, who had a 2.71 ERA going into the game and hadn't surrendered so many runs since a 10-5 blowout at the hands of the Yanks last September 3, long after it was obvious the Jays wouldn't be a force in the division. Unlike that time, all of his runs were earned, setting a personal mark for suck in the majors; top and bottom the Angels battered him, the only Angel not getting a hit being Juan Rivera, and even he scored a run. Rivera reached on one of third baseman Edwin Encarncion's three errors in this game, and even then he scored on a wild pitch. It was a day full of gifts, and while you could smirk at those, at least the Angels capitalized.
