Start checking the engraver's spelling: Miguel Tejada singled in the winning run tonight as the A's beat the Angels 4-3. With the press already solidly behind Tejada, a decent series would just serve to solidify his stranglehold on the MVP votes.
The Angels had gone up 3-0 in the top of the first on a Troy Glaus 3-run home run. The Angels not only failed to score, they only had two hits for the final eight and two-thirds innings.
By the way, the rumors of my death yuddah yuddah...the A's bullpen recorded two perfect innings while the Angels' allowed two runs in three and one-third.
So now it's all tied up again with three games left in the series and 12 in the season. Tomorrow it's 18-game-winner Jarrod Washburn for the Angels against 17-gamer-winner Mark Mulder for the A's. In a move reminiscent of Wilbur Wood, ESPN has Washburn scheduled to pitch the next two games.
