Weaver Undefeated In April, Turns In CG Gem: Angels 5, A's 0It's nice to have a stopper; I got home late to see the last three innings of this one, and man, what an impressive stretch the Weav is having. He's now the first pitcher to go 6-0 in April this early, though the early schedule start had a lot to do with that.
Good news: Howie Kendrick 2-for-4, and the bottom of the order doing well. Vernon Wells reached base twice.
Bad news: another 0-fer night for Torii Hunter that brings his season average below the Mendoza line.
A sad story played out in the stands: terminal cancer patient and ex-Strike Force girl Heather Beyer watched the shutout as a sort of last wish. If that's your last Angels game to see in person on this earth, the Angels carried her home on a doozy. Peace to her family.
Broxton Gags Again: Marlins 5, Dodgers 4I was reading MSTI's review of this game yesterday, and Mike is right to laud the good performances by Jerry Sands, Jamey Carroll, and Jon Garland; but the bigger worry is that Broxton, who blew the save and took the loss (deservedly, even though he wasn't helped by a misplay at short by Carroll) will get more chances to blow games. He's not good right now, and I wonder if he'll ever get better.
