Allsports Commentary: The L.A. Angels live another Day

Walt WebbCorrespondent IOctober 24, 2009

Well did you watch the game the other night? Did you think when the Yankees had that big inning that it was all over for the Angels?

Even if you did not watch the game on the tube you have likely seen by now in the sports news or looking up sports on the web that the L.A. Angels forced the American League Championship series back to New York with a come from behind 7-6 victory.

Things were looking good for the Angels as they tagged A.J. Burnett for four runs in the bottom of the first. John Lackey was cruising along through 6 and two thirds innings, pitching a shut out but then the umpire called a ball on what Lackey thought was a strike. The call got under Lackey’s skin and he lost his focus. Next thing you knew the Yank’s had scored six runs with two out in the inning. It looked like game over for the Halo’s but to give them credit they fought back, scoring three in the bottom half of the inning and then made the one run stick for the victory and force the series back to the Big Apple with the Yankees leading 3-2.

The Angels have to win two in New York now in order to get to the World Series. Allsports thinks that will be a pretty tall order.
