Dammit, I just lost a fairly lengthy post about last night's game, just when I have no time to reconstruct it. So here's the dime version:

Lackey - excellent job getting that first strike; 21 of 24! The wheels came off in the sixth, possibly due to loss of velocity and/or command (fastball was around 88 mph by then). Layne blew a call at first, but isn't responsible for Chone Figgins' or Garret Anderson's bad defense. Anderson's throw was so far over Halter's head it was quoting Schopenhauer.

Ryan Franklin pitched beautifully. Hudson and Mulder must be thinking pretty hard about how the Angels had a hard time with that breaking ball.

Glaus is said to be returning to the lineup tonight. Assuming the Molina brothers continue to trade starts, we may see the Angels' regular lineup for the first time this season on Saturday.

The full version was much smarter. I promise.
