June 16, 1989 at Tiger Stadium in Detroit the California Angels beat the Detroit Tigers 9-4. Chili Davis would hit a 3-run home run and Jack Howell would add a home run and score twice. Bert Blyleven went 7 2/3 innings, allowing 3 runs on 9 hits to run his record to 7-2. Bert Blyleven came to the Angels at the end of the 1988 season in a trade for Paul Sorrento and Mike Cook with the Minnesota Twins in his 22nd year in the majors. In 1989 Blyleven would go 17-5 with a 2.73 ERA and win the AL Comeback player of the Year award. His .773 winning percentage that year was one of the tops in the majors and ranks in the top 7 all-time for an Angel in a single season. Blyleven would pitch for the Angels in 1990, miss the entire 1991 season after rotator cuff surgery and pitch for them again in 1992 before ending his career at the end of the 1992 season. Blyleven would throw his only no-hitter against the Angels in 1977. Blyleven would help the Angels to a 91-71 record in 1989 but it was only good enough for 3rd place in the American League West, finishing 1 game behind the Kansas City Royals for 2nd. In 1989 the Angels would hold the 60th All-Star game at Anaheim Stadium.

Love to hear what you think!
