The atmosphere was electric when the SS Dodgers and LB Angels took the field at Ernie Howlett Field for a battle among intermediate division unbeatens. Wes Wang took the mound for his first start of the season against the powerful Dodgers lineup. Wang kept the Angels in the game through the first two innings, and despite a few early defensive miscues, the Angels defense kept the game close. The Dodgers took a 1 run lead into the top of the 4th when the Angel's bats came alive. The entire Angel's lineup contributed to the 8 run 4th inning to crush the Dodger's spirit. Ian "Drago" Malishka beat out a close play at 1st to get the offense started and the Angels never looked back.
The "key play" of the game came in the bottom of the 4th when Avi Desai made a diving play in the outfield to take away a bomb hit by the Dodger's cleanup batter.
After the game several reporters asked Manager Shannon Townley about the Angel's defensive play in the early innings, to which he responded, "Things could be worse. Suppose your errors were counted and published every day, like those of a baseball player."
The Angels are off for the next 10 days while all the smart kids go to the Outdoor Science Camp. Go Angels!!
