The Angels completed a quick two game sweep in Baltimore, winning their third game in a row. Tuesday Joe Saunders gave up 10 hits yet only allowed 4 runs (2 earned) getting the win in a 7-5 victory. Howie Kendrick continued his hot hitting, belting a two strike home run to put the Angels ahead for good.

This morning Shane Loux out dueled Koji Uehara. Torii Hunter and Kendry Morales hit back to back home runs in the 7th inning giving the Angels the lead for good in the 3-2 win.

Angel fans are puzzled by Brandon Wood being held out of the lineup, especially when the main reason Erick Aybar is getting playing time is because of his supposed spectacular defense. The Angels rank 14th in the league in defense and it hasn't gone unnoticed by Mike Scioscia. With the Angels facing two lefties in New York ,and Aybar continuing to be erratic, is it possible Wood could maybe get some time at SS?
