Matinee Today

The Angels have a 1 pm day game as they attempt to close-out the Orioles with their first series sweep since taking three from the Royals July 1 - 3.

Interesting start for what the Mariners hope will be their rookie phenom, Felix Hernandez. He is only 19 years old and has rocketed through the M's farm club. With Seattle going nowhere they decided he might as well see some big league hitters. Hernandez got into huge trouble in the first by giving up a two singles, and two walks that plated a run for Detroit. But with the bases loaded the kid got Dimitri Young to hit into a double play (first to home to first) and then struck out Pudge Rodriguez to get out of the jam. Later in the third he hit Polanco who stole second and made it to third on a groundout. With two outs catcher Wiki Gonzalez gives up a passed ball to allow Polanco to score. So the Tigers lead 2-0 in the top of the fourth. Get use to no run support and mediocre defense Felix.

Nice to see Matt Clement getting rocked by the Royals (4-0 in the third). Serves you right for not signing with the Angels you skinny prick.

In the 5th inning in Minnesota the A's & Twins are locked-up 1-1. The pitchers today are Zito & Lohse. In the bottom of the 5th the Twins have runners at first & second with nobody out...
