Angels Defeat Red Sox

With the two best teams in baseball playing each other, it was a close game for a while, but the Angels out-pitched and out-played the Red Sox tonight, winning 4-2. Schilling pitched well in his return from the disabled list, giving up 4 runs in 6 inning. Jered Weaver also pitched well, giving up only 2 runs in 6 innings, but left with a no-decision. The win went to Justin Speier, who pitched one good inning, with the Angel bullpen strong as usual. Shields got a hold in the 8th, and Frankie pitched a good 9th, striking out Big Papi to end the game. The Angels' offensive star was Chone Figgins, with 2 hits (one a stand-up triple) and an RBI. Maicer Izturiz homered in the go-ahead run. A Monday-night sold-out crowd of 44,000 was loud until the end, with many Red Sox fans in the stand.

So were you loudly rooting for the Red Sox at Angel Stadium?

There were fewer Red Sox fans than Angels fans, but they were equally vocal. My voice is shot.
