Chone Figgins capped a 6-for-6 evening by hitting a game-winning triple in the bottom of the ninth as the Angels rallied to beat the Astros 10-9. LA ace John Lackey got chased in the fifth, and the Astros led 9-4 at the seventh inning stretch, but the Astros suck, so there you are.
In a related story, the acceptable ways to spell the name pronounced "shon" are Shawn, Shaun, and Sean. "Chone" is just a consonant switch away from "Choad." You're on notice, Figgins. If my parents were too stupid to spell my first name, I'd at least have the common decency (or shame) to go by my middle name.
Other MLB scores: Curt Schilling pitched like crap and got the loss against the Braves despite a mysterious power output from Coco Crisp, who hit two homers… Prince Fielder's 26th home run lifted the Brewers over the Giants, who are seriously the most ancient fucking team in baseball. Bonds, Vizquel, Ray Durham, Randy Winn — it's a great lineup 8 years ago… The Indians are obviously exhausted from playing non-stop since the snowed-out series in April, beating Cole Hamels and the Phillies 10-1.
