Salt Lake Bees - Salt Lake has dropped 7 out of their last 10. However, catcher Hank Conger has really begun to swing the stick well. In his last 10 games, Conger is hitting .350 with a .920 OPS in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. But his defense behind the plate has remained average at best. With Scioscia...
The puns are way too easy to make, but Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim hit some bombs on Tuesday night at Comerica Park. It's fortunate that their offensive explosion was able to take place, though, as the game went off without a hitch despite a bomb threat against Comerica Park in Detroit.

Don't double take too hard now, but the Angels have finally gotten a real quality start off of a starter other than Weaver and Wilson. Yes technically Santana's game yesterday was logged in as a quality start, but with the way he constantly kept his team in hot water even with the offense trying their hardest to give him a comfortable lead. Garrett Richards has a lot to thank...
