San Francisco Giants @ Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Pitching Probables: SFG – Ryan Vogelsong (6-2, 2.29 ERA)   LAA – Jered Weaver (6-1, 2.61 ERA)
Game Info: 7:05 PM PT; TV - Fox Sports West; Radio - KLAA 830
After the Angels' offense errupted last night, the team very well may be on track for another offensive tear. Tonight's match up will be telling for the Angels' offense and whether they will be making yet another run in attempt to finally catch the Texas Rangers. 

The Angels face a tough pitcher in Ryan Vogelsong, who has pitched 6+ innings in each of his outings, all season long. The great thing about the Angels is when they're hot at the plate, they have a tendency to jump on teams early, and if they're really feelin' groovy, they'll continue to score into the later innings. Perhaps this will throw Vogelsong off of his consistent game.

As unfortunate as it is that the Halos are not facing another Barry Zito tonight, these offensive sruges carry over a game or two. With Mike Trout catching fire once more and Mark Trumbo finding his swing again, this offense should be able to put up enough runs to walk away with a victory over the Giants tonight.

Jered Weaver is making a triumphant return after his freak injury against the Yankees and I honestly couldn't be happier. The fact that Weaver is off the DL (and back in the rotation) helps me sleep a little easier at night. This offense loves to give this guy run support, and that usually means a solid victory. 

In honor of the return of the Dream Weaver, it's victory time.  [follow]
