Angels v. White Sox

Santana v. Contreras

Someone has fallen asleep over on the official Angels baseball website. The team has been scoring runs at a clip that would make even the Yankees blush and the highlight clips show Colon fanning 11 and Lackey striking out 7. What’s an offense do to get some love! But, seriously, those highlight clips are also a testament to just how good our pitching staff was and has been. Offense scores 11 runs, Colon strikes out 11. Hard to compete.

On the mound tonight for the Halos is none other than our very own version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Ervin Santana. His splits suggest that this could be a very short night for Ervin, but his stuff is good enough if he can get his head around pitching away from the Big “A.” Going up against Santana and the Angels tonight is Jose Contreras, who is 1-2 with a 6.16 ERA. But don’t let those numbers fool you. Since his first start disaster where he gave up 7 runs in one inning, he has settled down and given up 6 runs in his last 3 starts. Albeit, 5 of those 6 runs came against him in his last start where he went 7 innings in a loss at Detroit. If he can go 7 and only give up 5 he could have a chance with what is on paper, a very good line up.

If the Angels offense can continue to be more patient at the plate as it has been in this past week they should continue to hit the ball well. We all know how good Vlad is but this offense has seemed to go as far as Gary Matthews can take them in that when he gets on base enough, this team seems to score runs.

If “little Sarge” can continue to see some good AB’s and get on in front of Cabrera and Vlad, they should be able to continue to score runs.

If Santana can find his groove then the Angels should win this game handily. Otherwise, they will have to rely on the bullpen and the offense.

I think Ervin puts it together tonight.

Angels win.
Love to hear what you think!
