Player of the Game
Shelley Duncan got lucky and played a short night, but still had enough time to win the Player of the Game. Duncan had 2 RBI from a sacrifice fly and a solo home run. The 4.47 score was good for his 4th award of the year, but just his first since May 25th.
Zach McAllister was wonderful against tonight as he has been every time out so far. This time he threw 6 innings and could easily have thrown a shutout had it not been for a terrible throw to second base by Jack Hannahan. McAllister also struck out 5, including the first two batters of the game. Officially, he gave up three runs and 8 hits on the night. Not too bad against the Angels.
Progressive Field was rocking tonight, at least before the second rain delay emptied most of the crowd. The crowd of 29,292 was the most for a game that didn't occur on a Friday or Saturday other than Opening Day. The stands looked mostly full (outside of the extremities of the upper deck) and even Burning River...
