Weaver's Awesome, And What Else Is New? Angels 1, Rangers 0

I was pretty damned sure that the Angels were going to lose this series, and they very nearly did last night — but thanks to a positively inspirational six-run rally in the sixth and Jordan Walden's 22nd save, they held it together for the win.

Today's story — the Angels won on an unearned run, reminding me of the weird game on June 28, 2008 where he lost despite giving up no hits (the Dodgers would get none, either) — except that this time, they won. C.J. Wilson was, save for an error that allowed the winning run to cross the plate (Endy Chavez' throwing error that allowed Mike Trout to reach, and Howie Kendrick to score). Weaver's most nail-biting moment came in the sixth, when the Rangers managed to load the bases, but he finally got Mitch Moreland to strike out, ending the threat.

Is the season over? Not any more. Are the Angels still contenders? Possibly, but I'm still not quite sold. Let's see the division lead trade places down the stretch.
