Jeff Mathis = Jeff Awesome!

Well, maybe more like Jeff Mathis = Jeff Rightplacerightime, but the comment stands. Jeff Mathis won the game in the bottom of the 12th with a sac fly that scored Vernon Wells (!). It was a great pitching match-up, and the Angels bats were pretty cool all night. It seemed like the game would go on forever. Thankfully, Mathis got the key hit (er, flyout to center) which ended the game. This may continue to befuddle Mike Scioscia, as Hank Conger (who started the game) had a really solid game, both at the plate and behind it. But if Mathis can get key hits (again, flyouts to center), maybe this is a revitalization of his bat.

Or maybe he just came up with the Bases Loaded and 1 out, and all he had to do was hit the ball more than 300 feet.
