Angels 8, Giants 1

The Angels looked great and the Giants looked equally weak for a second day in a row.

Angels prospect Nick Adenhart pitched 6 shutout innings. That, combined with a whopping 17 hits from the Angels was enough for a good win. The hits were well-spread amongst the Angels. Eric Aybar hit his 3rd home run of the season. Catcher Mike Napoli upped his average with 2 hits, plus 2 runs, and an RBI. Chone Figgins got 2 hits and an RBI.

The Giants got a paltry 4 hits during the game. Bonds' departure has left them with no pop.

Tempe stadium is nice, but there's virtually no shade. Today's game was a sellout. The temperature only hit 83, but the Phoenix sky is crystal blue, and the sun beats down heavily. Several people seemed to have problems with the heat and needed medical attention. They did a minor upgrade of the stadium a few years ago, they need to add more shade coverage like the other parks.
