    Angels Get the W 4-0.

    after weeks and weeks of seeing close games go and his team not showing up. the Angels finally broke the 6 gm losing skid with a 4-0 blanking of the Twins. Joel Pinerio is 1-1 after going 8 strong innings with 1 k and 2 bb.

    the start for the angels was a great start with rivera homering in the 1st to stake a 1-0 lead. the pineiro ran into trouble in the bottom of the 1st. Span hit a little dribbler to which the P or C could not make up their minds on who was going to field it. then after 2 GO, pineiro walked thome and morneau to load the bases, then got Cuddyer to ground out to 2nd to end a very tense 1st inning.

    then Matsui Homered in the 2nd for a 2-0 lead. pinerio had no trouble in the 2nd.

    then in the 3rd the angels got a double from Napoli (who was hitless til then) then aybar tried to move him to 3rd but failed, Kendrick then hit a shot to center to drive in napoli for a 3-0 lead. In the bottom of the 3rd Mauer hit a shot to center for a single, Thome struck out, Mourneau then hit a single to center, then Cuddyer hit a shot to right, in which Abreau then threw home to cut down Mauer at home.

    In the 5th Hunter added his 3rd Homer of the Season for a 4-0 lead.
    Twins had a runner on in the bottom of the 5th, but Grounded into a double play to end the threat.

    then after quiet 6-7-and 8th innings, the 9th was another gut wrencher, Thome doubled to Left Center, after that Pineiro was relieved by Shields, who hit the 1st batter he faced, then got a double play for 2 quick outs. then got Young to Strike out to end the Ballgame.

    Manager Grad was Very Happy with this Win and Hopes his ball Club can build on this. "its been a learning yr so far for this ball club and i hope we can turn it around to salvage the season".

    Winning P. Pineiro 1-1
    Losing P. Pavano 0-2
