Saturday's Babelicious Scoreboard

After a 21-minute, 45-pitch, 3-run first, John Lackey (12-5, 2.98 ERA) settled in for five more innings and gave up only one more run on seven hits. The righty struck out five and walked one, helping the Los Angeles Angels beat the Texas Rangers for the 19th time in 23 contests.

Vladimir Guerrero, Reggie Willits and Gary Matthews Jr. had two RBIs a piece for the Halos, who held onto their three-game lead over the Seattle Mariners in the AL West.

CJ Wilson should join the circusC.J. Wilson should join the circus. That is not normal.

Kameron Loe (5-7, 5.49 ERA) lasted just 2.2 innings, giving up five runs - three earned - on five hits with a season-high five walks.

Behind Loe, Kenny Lofton went 3-for-5, but failed to drive in any runs. Michael Young, Frank Catalanotto, Gerald Laird and Mark Teixeira had an RBI each for Texas.

    The Angels are gay. Just to let you know. And fuck the twinkies (even if the a's suck) :)

    Ha. You're just pissed we swept your sorry asses. In four games.

    pookeyguru said...

    Yep I am. Although I can honestly tell you I don't give a shit. Seeing as I have watched and listened to a combined 10 games this season. You want to find a way NOT to market a baseball team. Use the Oakland Athletics as prime example. If you live in Sacramento seeing/hearing the A's is almost impossible without cable (a very dumb way to market your team).

    On the other hand your team leads the Majors with 8 walk off wins. YIPPEEEEEEEE

    Sooze said...

    Yes! They gained all sorts of ground this weekend.

    Your A's still ruined the best comeback of last season for me. So, there's always that to hold onto.

    i don't think the A's are too burned up about it. I mean, look at them. I get a contact high just watching Nick Swisher on the tee-vee.

    So that's where you've been hiding, Deborah...

    Ummm Sooze if Torii Hunter doesn't morphy into Terrance Long the twinkies win the series. So shut the fuck up and make the playoffs and make the ALCS again. I'm tired of hearing whining from twins fans.
