Angels 7 Blue Jays 3
When you get 7 hits and 4 walks in 6 innings off a lousy starter you ought to score more than 3 runs. Adam Lind hit a three run homer and that was the end of our scoring. Randy Ruiz, Lyle Overbay, And Lind had two hits each. The o for group was Vernon Wells(one walk), Jose Bautista (who did have 2 walks) and Rod Barajas (but then I've already ranted about him. Vernon was caught stealing after his walk, a stupid moment to try to steal as Bautista was walked right after he was caught. Trying to steal when you could have just walked over to second is dumb.
Scott Richmond pitched pretty well. 7 innings, 6 hits, 3 walks and 10 strikeouts. He did give up 3 runs in the 3rd and 1 more in the 6th on a Vladimir Guerrero homer. He was hurt in the 3rd by a caught that Adam Lind didn't make in left. Ball hits the glove but he didn't catch it and for some reason he wasn't award an error. Brian Tallet pitched a terrible inning of relief, giving up 3 runs and that was the game.
Jay of the Day is Adam Lind (.222 WPA). Suckage Jays are Tallet (-.213), Barajas (-.193) and Vernon (-.117).
Tomorrow Ricky Romero (10-5, 3.95) goes up against Trevor Bell (1-0, 5.91) in an afternoon game.
My wife's birthday party was much more fun than the game. You'd figure by now she'd realize she's too good for me, wouldn't you?
