Despite a rather rough loss in our second game of our home opener there is something to be said for David Phelps 5.1 innings of relief of Hughes allowing just one run and striking out 4. Jeter went 2-5 as the leadoff guy providing spark that a floundering offense couldn't take advantage of.
Hughes lasted just 3.1 innings giving up 6 runs. Not a great start especially with Pettitte is looking to take someones spot in the next number of weeks.
Everybody not named Albert Pujols on the Angels hit a homerun. It was tough to see, especially for the Angels who watched Albert cash one of his multi-million dollar checks over the weekend.
