Torii Hunter scored on a double play in the eighth to give the Angels the go-ahead run and their second victory in two days over the Rays. It wasn't a particularly great outing for wither starting pitcher, as Tyler Chatwood was pulled from the game after just four innings after giving up five runs and Alex Cobb went four and a third for the Rays, allowing four.
The Angels have very quietly moved into a tie with the Rangers for the AL West. They've been pulling it off via a team-effort, with contributions from many players on the team. For example, before this season, I thought Hank Cogner was a country singer who passed away last year. But I've been wrong before, and will be wrong again.
