The Only Hit That Mattered: Angels 4, Rockies 2
Hideki Matsui unloaded one into left center, an opposite field blast that carried the Angels to victory. Victory, that is, despite Joe Saunders (lately bad) and the bullpen (bad all year long). Rodney got some measure of redemption by pitching a scoreless ninth, and Fuentes nailed down a save despite giving up a one-out walk — somehow, he got Miguel Olivo to line into an inning-ending double play. He's burning up his luck at a crazy pace, lately.
