Jered Weaver Grant Green & Chris Iannetta lead LA Angels in a sneak attack upon the Houston Astros claiming an unusual result of a victory 6 to 2.
Well whaddaya know??? Jered Weaver tossed 6 decent innings which Chris Iannetta and Grant Green parlayed at the plate into a surprising victory over the MLB juggernaut that is the Houston Astros. Final score 6 runs across the plate for the home boys against only 2 runs plated for the opposition.
Mike Trout continues to feast on the Bases on Balls although it might be a nice time to restart that whole phenomenon of base hits and such. His On Base Percentage climbs even ans his Batting and Slugging Averages dwindle. Just an observation.

Mike Trout - Trout had a rough week by his standards, hitting just .136. His OBP was still .424 though, so I guess that'll just have to do.

GAME 148 - RANGERS AT ANGELS
ANAHEIM – Angels starter Kevin Appier gave up a five-spot to the Texas Rangers in the top of the first inning, but he settled down and allowed the Angels bats to take control, coming back for an 8-6 victory before 39,909 at Edison Field.
The win was the Angels’ fifth in a row...
Jerome Williams wants to be a starter for the Angels next season.
Williams kept on making his case Sunday winning a third straight start for the first time since April 2004 as the Angels beat Houston 2-1 to send the Astros to their 98th loss.

I simply could not care less about this game. This is what it must have felt like to be a Pirates fan for the last 20 years. What we have here is a meaningless game between two teams who are all just counting the days till their seasons are over. All tonight did was highlight jsut how crushing losing 10 games to the Astros this year has been. There is no excuse for losing to this...
Take that Orbit, whatever you are!

MONDAY, 9/16: C.J. Wilson vs. Sonny Gray: Prodigal Son
Yep, that's right a rookie that the Angels haven't faced before... only they have. He pitched two innings of relief against the Halos back in July, but if he shuts down the Angels tonight, everyone will surely use the fallacious excuse that this team just can't beat rookie pitchers...
After a long and particularly rough season against the Astros the Angels have finally managed to take a series from the Astros in a rather painless fashion. The team was led by the exceptional pitching of Jerome Williams in addition to strong situation hitting by Josh Hamilton. The Angels haven't just won a game today however, they've made history.
Well, Mike Trout has...

The Houston Astros needed Brett Oberholtzer to be near-perfect on a night they simply couldn't get much going against Jered Weaver.
Houston's improved offense - which had helped them to four straight wins coming in - was ineffective against Weaver and the Los Angeles bullpen, striking out nine times in a 6-2 loss to the Angels on Saturday night.
The Astros set an American...
