Asdrubal Cabrera, fresh off his player of the week award, continued to play Babe Ruth and hit a first inning home-run. It isn't just the fact that he is hitting very well, but that he is doing it early on in the ballgame when there are, on average, higher leveraged situations. In such a case, he has been "Mr. Clutch" in a sense.
Matt LaPorta's 3-run home run in the 2nd inning essentially put the nail in the coffin on the Angels evening... I am happy to see Matt hitting the ball well. If he hits to his potential this year... what a middle of the order we have!
Not only was Mitch Talbot very effective tonight, he was also efficient. He faced 30 batters and threw 112 pitches.
Every team in the AL Central lost today... KC did not play.
I did not get to see Chris Perez's awesome beard.
