John Lackey threw his first career shutout last night against Texas, a purt' fair hittin' team. The Angels have now won five of their last six, and can see the wild card with binoculars again. After finishing up with Texas tonight, they'll complete the pre-All-Star-Game portion of the schedule with a quick trip up to Oakland and a homestand against Kansas City and Minnesota - not exactly the easiest row to hoe, but certainly an opportunity to see if this team is going to rise to the occasion or keep puttering along.
