Gio Fabulous! He pitched 7 1/3 innings of 3 hit ball. He left after two one-out walks in the seventh and was replaced by Balfour, who got the second out, but loaded the bases. He went 3-1 on Kendrick, but got him to fly out to DeJesus who made the catch just about in the stands. And then hit a home run to give Bailey the cushion. Jemile hit another home run to lead off the game (yes, really!!!) and singled in the go-ahead run. Fun fact: The Angels surpassed the Dodgers in attendance in tonight's game for the first time in 50 years.
