Angels manager Mike Scioscia shook up his lineup a bit the next day, including moving Mike Trout to the lead-off spot. Trout reached first, stole second, and scored a run in both of his first two PAs. Another Angels run in the fourth gave them a 3-1 lead, but Tigers starter George Uhle got in a zone and faced the minimum 15 batters over the last five innings. For Anaheim, Nolan Ryan did his usual wild twirling, and three of the seven Tigers who took a walk came around to score to help the Tigers come back and finish off the sweep. Norm Cash had a huge series for Detroit, going a combined 5-for-8 with three walks, a triple, and a dong.
