MLB.COM: Eight Run Seventh Catapults Angels to Comeback Win

I was resigned to a loss tonight as Hector Santiago gave up a grand slam early and the Angels were down 5-2 in the 7th.  Then…..

David Freese, Albert Pujols and C.J. Cron all homered in the (seventh) inning, with Freese’s two-run shot trimming the deficit to one, Pujols’ two-run dinger putting the Angels up by one and Cron’s three-run blast supplying insurance runs.

For the Angels, the eight runs were a season high in one inning.

This season is starting to resemble 2002 in the AL West.  The Angels get hot and go on a crazy streak (10 in a row at home and 18-3 in their last 21 at home) but they look up to see the A’s doing as well or better!

Toronto Blue Jays’ Dustin McGowan wins a rotation spot as club sets opening-day roster

McGowan, 32, lost the better part of five years to shoulder injuries. Once a promising starter, he told management at the end of last season that he wanted to try to win a rotation job. But a 10-day bout with the flu seemed to knock him out of the running because he had not been stretched out enough to set himself up for that role.

He expected to wind up in the bullpen again. “It seemed like time was running short on me,” he said Thursday before learning of his new assignment.

But in his past two outings, he has thrown 48 and 62 pitches, and assuming no setbacks, management is betting that another start on Sunday will prepare him for the job.

The Jays will use an 8 man bullpen and Josh Thole beat out Erik Kratz to win the backup/knuckleball catcher job.
