Inching towards mediocrity.


Escape from New York. (Now with slightly less of a chance of the Angels not making it to the World Series!)

It seems that reports of the Angel’s loss were greatly exaggerated.

My god, what a game THAT was!

The Angels managed to battle their way back from the brink at the last moment, toppling the Yankees 7-6 last night in Los Angeles. It was an epic battle, with the Angels leading for most of the game until the sixth inning – when ace John Lackey loaded the bases, and then the Yankees hammered the bullpen for six runs, giving them a 6-4 lead.

Luckily, the Angels rallied in their half of the seventh inning, chasing away Yankee ace (and former Blue Jay) A.J. Burnett, to seal the game at 7-6.

Now it’s on to Game 6 in the Bronx…if the Yankees win this game, they’ll be heading to the World Series – and celebrating this accomplishment on their own turf.

If not, it’s on to a final showdown for the American League in Game 7. Even disregarding my hatred for the Yankees, I still hope it makes it that far. I want to see the Angels win, sure, but I’d REALLY like to see some exciting baseball.

Let’s go Angels!
