Los Angeles Angels staying alive, back in NY for game 6

The Los Angeles Angels are back in New York tonight for game six after getting a huge 7-6 win at home in game five.  John Lackey pitched well in the game five win and the Angels have built some momentum heading into game six in New York.  Closer Brian Fuentes made things interesting last game, as he loaded the bases with two walks and hit batsmen, but was able to get Nick Swisher to pop out to end the game and extend the series.  The heart of the Angels’ lineup needs another big game tonight.  Vladimir Guerrero, Torrie Hunter, and Kendry Morales combined for six hits and six RBIs in game five.  The Angels have Joe Saunders starting tomorrow night.  The lefthander has to be very careful with Alex Rodriguez, who is hitting .368 in this series with three homers.  He hits lefthanders very well, so when the opportunity arises to pitch around Arod, they should do it every time.  The Angels are still in desperation time and it is win or go home.  I would love to see the Angels force a game 7 and continue to make this an exciting series.
