Game 23: Angels Bounce Back

May 1st, 2012

The Angels took the opening game of their three game set against the Minnesota Twins, winning by a score of 4-3. C.J. Wilson dominated the Twins through seven innings, but he got into some trouble in the eighth before the bullpen finished the job and actually held the lead.

The Angels offense only scraped together four runs, but it looked pretty doing it. Torii Hunter went 2-for-4 with three RBIs, knocking in Albert Pujols with a single in the first, then Kendrys Morales with a two-run trumbo in the fourth. Chris Iannetta offered some insurance (that turned out to be essential to the win) with a solo schwinger of his own in the bottom of the seventh.

The Halos got into some trouble in the eighth when Wilson opened the inning by plunking Chris Parmelee, whose had a rough few days. Alexi Casilla then doubled Parmelee in, before a Denard Span drove in Casilla himself.

After a fielder’s choice by Jamey Carroll, LaTroy Hawkins relieved Wilson. Hawkins allowed Carroll to advance on a single by Josh Willingham. A fielder’s choice by Sean Burroughs, whose also had a rough few days hours, created a first-and-third situation. Hawkins allowed the runner on third to come in on a Danny Valencia single, then Scott Downs entered the game.

Downs has been rock solid so far this season. Technically, he has yet to allow a run, even though he has allowed inherited runners to come in. Downs got out of the eighth with a groundball from Ryan Doumit. In the ninth, Downs was again rock solid, completing the save despite allowing a two-out hit.

Tonight, the Angels and Twins will play their second game of the series. Jerome Williams will take on Francisco Liriano.
