Chatwood, Angels Slay White Sox: Angels 7, White Sox 2

Really, an astonishing game when you look at the score alone, especially considering it was Tyler Chatwood's major league debut second major league game. I always feel like I should derate a rookie's first run because of the league's inexperience against him, and just so today; but then there's the tendency to fold and fail the first time, too. I listened to maybe three of the nine innings today, and it was a doozy, a fun romp at a time the Angels needed some to help pump them up to near the division-leading Rangers, who lost 5-2 in the Bronx. Only a game back now, and that's something considering the weakish stumble they made earlier.

Homers by Howie and Hank. Woot!

Actually, this was Chatwood's second outing. He pitched in Anaheim on Monday and took the loss against Cleveland. Similar parallel to Ervin Santana's debut: rocky start against the Indians followed by a dominant performance against the White Sox.
Weird -- I knew that, but for some reason it evaded me. But still pretty cool.
And, fixed above.
