MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Garret Anderson has his manager's vote for the All-Star Game.
"He's the best-kept secret in our league,'' Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia said after Anderson drove in four runs with two doubles to lead the Angels to an 11-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.
"There's no doubt in my mind that he's an All-Star. He's doing a lot for us.''
"Everything's clicking pretty good for everybody, and that's
why we're putting up a lot of runs,'' Anderson said.
Ortiz (8-5) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings. He
struck out seven and walked one.
"I feel good and the team won,'' Ortiz said. The team won, and
that's all I need. I feel very consistent right now. I want to keep
it going like that.''
Fullmer homered on the first pitch from Ruben Quevedo (3-6) in
the second inning and Anderson's double in the third scored Darin
Erstad, who singled and stole second.
The Angels got run-scoring singles from Adam Kennedy and Erstad and a three-run double by Anderson for a 7-1 lead in the fourth.
Quevedo hit a batter and walked two in the inning.
"He just totally lost it,'' Milwaukee manager Jerry Royster
said. "I can't explain it. We got a double play -- a big double
play -- and he hits a guy. It just opens up the floodgates.
"It's tough to overcome that. We've done it so many times, but that's tough to overcome, especially against a team like that. That team is red-hot.''
Quevedo departed after the fourth, giving up seven runs on nine
hits. He has allowed 19 runs in 14 2/3 innings over his last three
starts after giving up only three runs in 30 2/3 innings over four
"They made him throw a lot of pitches,'' Machado said. "That's
not Ruben. They wore him out.''
After giving up a run in the fourth on a sacrifice fly by Matt
Stairs, the Angels made it 10-2 with three runs in the fifth. One
scored on an error and two on a single by David Eckstein.
Ortiz allowed more than one hit only in the fourth when Eric
Young and Richie Sexson singled.
The Brewers scored two runs on doubles by Young, Tyler Houston and Stairs in the eighth.
Glaus hit a solo homer, his 14th of the season, in the ninth.
Milwaukee CF Alex Sanchez was back in the lineup after
missing three games with a sprained wrist and bruised knee. His
availability allowed OF Jeffrey Hammonds to rest his sore shoulder.
... 1B Richie Sexson is batting .393 (22-of-56) in his last 15 home
games. ... Erstad is the all-time leader in interleague play with
140 hits. ... Of Machado's eight hits with the Brewers, six are for
extra bases _ a homer and five doubles.
