Quotes from the visitor’s clubhouse … Angels manager Mike Scioscia
On the game-changing 7th inning: “Luis [Valbuena] is going to drive the ball, he’s going to take his walks when they’re there…he’s hit some big home runs, that’s a huge home run tonightto get us back into the game. He’s working hard and getting some big hits for us.”
“[Throwing out Alonso] is a huge play. You’ve got two tremendous arms in Kole Calhoun and Andrelton Simmons at short and Martin Maldonado made a nice pick and tag. That’s a huge play for us at the time, no doubt.”
