  Joe Blanton showed up tonight.  The rest of the Angels? Nope.  Joe came in and threw 8 strong innings (an Angels first) giving up 2 earned runs.  Chris Tillman, the Fountain Valley High kid, just wanted it more.  He came in and shutdown the Halos through 8 innings, giving up only 3 hits.  The Big Four combined to go 2- 14, with Pujols’ homer coming too little too late in the 9th inning. Angel fans expected big things with the Orioles coming into town.  Maybe Josh would hit four homers again, maybe Trout would miraculously rob another homerun.  But then, we were reminded that all happened in Baltimore, not Anaheim. Angels 1, Orioles 5   Game Notes --Orioles catcher Matt Wieters pulled the ol’ “pretend there’s not gonna be a throw to the plate” on Trout, and got him out standing up in the 1st inning.  If Trout slides he’s safe. --Brasier gave up the same amount of earned runs as Blanton did, except Brasier threw one inning, and Joe threw eight.  When the heck is Ryan Madson going be healthy!?...and the rest of the bullpen for that matter. --Pujols hit his 5th homer of the season in the 9th inning. This time last year he had 0. --Now with Blanton back on track, what does Sosh do with Garrett Richards? Halo A-Holes of the Game Insert the other six guys in the starting lineup.  Uhhh, yea...go ahead and put Sosh in there too.
