Stealing Signals: Halo Power.

Angels 2, A's 1 - A good old fashioned pitchers' duel between John Lackey and Dan Haren, and Lackey comes out on top when an error in the 7th allows Garret Anderson to score on Casey Kotchmann's infield hit. From there, Hector Carrasco and Scot Shields lock it down for the Angels.

Astros 5, Cardinals 1 - Roy Oswalt tosses a five-hit complete game to get Houston into the win column. Carlos Lee and Lance Berkman go yard, but Craig Biggio's two-run double is the hit that blows it open.

Rangers 8, Red Sox 4 - Sawx Nation is already cursing the name of Julian Tavarez this morning after he coughed up six runs in four innings. Red Sox management is getting ready to make more phone calls to Roger Clemens' agent -- also, Sammy Sosa hits number 589, and he will hit 600 by the season's end.

White Sox 3, Twins 0 - Javier Vazquez and four Pale Hose relievers make the Twins look bad in very, very cold weather with a three-hit shutout.

Dodgers 4, Giants 1 - Derek Lowe throws his usual junk, the Dodgers dink and dunk for runs, and San Francisco can't get any offense going. Wilson Valdez, filling in for Furcal at short, has an absolutely insane game with three hits and good defensive plays.

Yankees 10, Orioles 7 - A-Rod hits a walk-off grand slam. Yankee Nation yawns and says, "It's not the Red Sox and it's not October." More pressing would be the Yanks' pitching problems, with another lame start, this time courtesy of Kei Igawa, who deflects it by asking not to be compared to Daisuke Matsuzaka.

Braves 5, Mets 3 - John Smoltz beats old buddy Tom Glavine, but it's not Glavine's fault -- a costly error by Shawn Green once again reveals that having sunglasses on your hat out in the field doesn't do you much good.
