Hey, this is getting fun - the Angels defeated the Twins again today, 6-1, behind a strong, seven-inning start by Jarrod Washburn and a three-hit game by Scott Spiezio. The turnaround in the starting pitching has been nothing short of amazing. The bullpen has been consistently great all year - at present, their ERA is more than a full run lower than the #2 pen in the league (which happens to be Minnesota's) - but the recent resurgence of the starters has moved the pitching staff's overall ERA to 3.98, third in the AL (not counting today's game).
