The Angels had to settle for a split after a loss to the Tigers today. This was one of the best pitching matchups I’ve seen in a while with Jered Weaver going up against Justin Verlander. Weaver was tagged for a two run home run in the third and then in the seventh, things got weird. Carlos Guillen hit a solo shot and words were exchanged. The ump gave a warning but Weaver must have missed it because he went to Alex Avila’s head. Weaver was immediately tossed out.
The final was 3-2 which wasn’t bad because we didn’t get a hit until the eighth inning. Izturis had the lone base hit in the game with an RBI single. Both of the runs the Angels scored were unearned.
The Rangers lost so the Angels are still two back. The team gets a day off before the Twins come to town. This is going to be a fun race. I wonder what Angels tickets are going for these days with them in the middle of this division race.
