Pujols Finally Gets His First Home Run, So Can We Talk About The Awful Bullpen Now? Angels 4, Blue Jays 3
As it happened in this game, Pujols two-run jack was the game winner, one which the Jays did plenty to erode late, getting single runs in the sixth and seventh innings in scratch-it-out fashion. Too pooped from not sleeping last night to write more.
Update: I forgot to mention that yesterday's game ended with injuries to Scott Downs (knee) and LaTroy Hawkins (broken right pinky). There was a corresponding move made today, with Hawkins sent to the (15-day?) DL and reliever David Pauley getting the callup from AAA Salt Lake. Alden Gonzalez has more.
Update 2: It looks like there will be no DL time for Downs according to Mike DiGiovanna. He is day-to-day.
Update 3: Mike Scioscia will go with a "closer by committee" between Ernesto Frieri and Jordan Walden.
