Winning The Only Way They Know How: Angels 8, Indians 4

It was an odd game, as these things go; first, the Angels stood up in the second and bludgeoned the former Fausto Carmona, now Roberto Hernandez in his first game since serving a three-week suspension for falsifying his name. The results were pretty for the Angels so far as the score went, but not so much for what they said about the team's offense in reality. What transpired was a real comedy of errors, with Vernon Wells reaching on an error and scoring on another one, both by Brent Lillibridge. In all, they put up a five spot, but really, had Lillibridge not sucked, the score would have been 2-0, as Iannetta's sac fly would have been the inning's third out, and Wells would have hit into a double play.

The good also included Ervin Santana's first decent outing in quite a long time, completing seven innings with only one run surrendered. Jason Isringhausen sucked — again — giving up a three-run jack to Shin Soo Choo, but that was it for the Tribe, who went down in order against an oddly resurgent Kevin Jepsen. In a year that has been so miserable for the Angels — I wrote nothing about the weekend series with Seattle because it was so damn dispiriting — it's good if you can beat the (other) bad teams.
