Angels 3; Yankees 1

Fine outing by Lackey, and MAJOR props to Scioscia who didn't make the mistake of leaving him in too long again. He's been burned a couple of times, most notably in Texas a couple of weeks ago. The bullpen is living up to their promise. Excellent for three and two thirds, topped off by Frankie's two strike outs.

Legs Figgins has been on fire lately, and had the average almost up to .300. Vlad is Vlad. D-Mac had another couple of hits, including another double to the opposite field. It hasn't been mentioned much, but his power and willingness to go the other way is very encouraging. He continues to play solid defense, and almost made a terrific catch on a funky little pop-up by Sheffield, which quite honestly, should have been taken by Brendan Donnelly. But Donnelly pitched his way out of it, so no harm done.

Good start to the road trip, and they essentially kept pace with the A's, who took two of the three from what's left of the White Sox earlier in the week.

Next up are the Twins, including a start by Johan Santana on Sunday. I hate when my pitchers go against the Angels. Hopefully I'll have a big enough lead that it won't matter. I honestly don't think the Twins are that good, so I'd settle for another two out of three, which makes Paul Byrd's start tomorrow very important. I think Escobar will be nails on Saturday.

This makes 7 of the last 10 for the Halos, and while they still don't look like they're going to run away with anything yet, I still get the feeling that they should win every game before it starts. Probably just a carry-over from the fabulous season by the Fighting Illini.
