ERV Boxscore for June 14, at California
The problem with baseball is that, although it appears to be pretty static, it has a number of moving parts that make it hard to tell why things happened. For the first six innings last night, I thought our feeble mid-May bats had returned and were the source of the problem. But that turned out to be Ervin Santana, and as soon as he left, and Frank fingered the cheater Donnelly, and Scioscia reacted like a baby, Santana's spell was not only gone, it had backfired and was now confounding the Angels. The rest is not only history, but another signpost game for us to look back on when the season is over.
