5-23-08: Angels 3 - Sox 1

May 23, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois


Sometimes a win streak has to end. It's inevitable. Eventually, everything will end. Win streaks will come and go, but this one didn't have to end so prematurely. One bad inning led to the loss. That's just the way it goes sometimes.

Gavin Floyd pitched a complete game loss. Orlando Cabrera continued to beat up on his former team. The only real mistake was the home run to Torii Hunter. Unfortunately, Jermaine Dye was only able to muster out 1 RBI in the ninth inning. The effort was there, but it just wasn't enough today.

The good:
Stolen bases by A.J. and Cabrera!

Gavin Floyd pitched a great game, except for one inning.

The bad:
The home run to Torii Hunter.

The bottom of the lineup went 0 for 8.

The ugly:
Jim Thome and Joe Crede both went 0 for 4.

5 men left on base.

This was a winnable game, but the winning streak had to end sometime. It was good to see the top of the lineup be so productive. The rest of the lineup has to catch up or it means nothing.
