On a night that Ted Lilly had a mostly semi-decent ok passable game, Angels pitcher Jason Vargas was able to stifle the Dodgers Noffense after an early, shaky start. There were multiple strange plays in the Dodgers infield that made watching an exasperating experience: little nubbers that pitchers muffed; easy plays that the defense nonetheless struggled with; a weakly-fielded deep fly in right that exposed Kemp's absence and Ethier's playing out of position; and pitchers who should have let hit balls alone.
Crawdaddy had a brilliant catch in LF, to be fair to the Dodgers defense, leaving a giant skidmark across the LF foul line. So don't sleep on that Web Gem tonight.
Improbably, weak-hitting "DH" Ramon Hernandez had a home run to keep it close. Overall, this one mostly resembled a double or triple A game if the team didn't have their names on the backs of their shirts. This evened the season series at 2-2. We live to fight another day.
Off to Colorado, boys and girls! At least that stadium has a small outfield so not having a true CF won't Mater. Oh wait, sorry, that pun was from last night.
UPDATE: I'd be remiss if I didn't give props to the GT MVP comment from Cliff Beefpile, as follows and I quote:
"With that little sphincter-esque "halo" at the top of the A, it's like even their logo says 'assholes'. The skidmarks just verify that."
