It's easy to slag on Anthony Vasquez in this game, but he threw 98 pitches and of the 42 swings the Angels took against him, eight missed for an 81% contact rate which is slightly better than average. Of the 21 balls put in play, only two were classified as line drives (though Anaheim has a scoring bias that diminishes line drive calls) and he induced five pop ups. The home run surrendered to Mark Trumbo was hit on a pitch around Trumbo's mid-shins. Vasquez obviously could have pitched better, but do not discount the unlucky breaks he got from the defense tonight and that he have to face nine right-handed hitters. I'm not claiming Vasquez pitched a hidden gem, but it's not the worst outing either.
