KANSAS CITY, Mo. [url= http://www.cheapadidasaustr...om/]Adidas Shoes Australia Cheap[/url] . - Neither rain nor the Kansas City Royals could stop the Los Angeles Angels from winning again. Albert Pujols and David Freese combined to drive in five runs as the Angels beat the Royals 6-2 on Saturday for their seventh victory in eight games. There were two rain delays with the second after the fourth inning lasting 3:58. The game didnt end until nearly 7 hours after it started. "We had a lot of waiting in between a baseball game," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. The official game time was 2:48, while the rain delays totalled 4:06. "Its a waiting game," said Eric Hosmer, who had one of the six Royals hits and scored a run. "You basically hang out. We heard it was going to be a couple of hours. It wasnt one of those things where we were thinking it could start any minute, so we had a little heads up. Its all part of the grind of the season. There are going to be days like that. Its what we all sign up for." Pujols, who has 14 RBIs in his past 13 games, singled home runs in the third and sixth innings. Freese, who had three hits, drove in three runs, two in the four-run sixth and the other in fourth. He has six RBIs in his past seven games, after driving in only three in his previous 26 games. "It was nice to come out and get some runs after the rain," Freese said. "It was almost like starting a new game so it was nice to get some runs, and nice to get the win." Kole Calhoun added three hits, scored two runs and drove in one. The Angels four-run sixth included four hits, two walks and three stolen bases. Rookie right-hander Mike Morin (2-1), who went to high school at a Kansas City suburb, allowed two runs on two hits over two innings to pick up the victory. "It was cool," Morin said. "Scioscia told me I was going to get the ball and I had all my family and friends here. They were probably the only ones left after the rain delay. Its been a great weekend. Ill never forget it. It was just fortunate that I could be in there to get the win in front of them." Angels left-hander Hector Santiago was not allowed to come back out after the second delay. He pitched four scoreless innings, giving up four hits. "Somebody sent me a message and asked me did you make a witch angry?" said Santiago, who needed to pitch one more inning to claim his first victory of the season and losing his first seven decisions. "It seems like everything that can have an effect on me getting a win has happened. But I gave four scoreless innings and gave us a chance to win, and the team got the win, so thats what I care about." Royals rookie Yordano Ventura (5-7) took the loss, yielding two runs on seven hits over four innings. "I felt like I was in command of the strike zone, but unfortunately the rain got to me and I couldnt go back out," Ventura said with Royals catching coach Pedro Grifol acting as his interpreter. "I prepared to pitch today and I wanted to go back out, but there was no way I could go back after that long rain delay." Veteran left-hander Bruce Chen, who had not pitched since April 24 and going on the disabled list with a bulging disc, replaced Ventura after the game resumed. He allowed four runs on four hits, all in the sixth, walked two and struck out eight over five innings. Jason Grilli made his Angels debut after being acquired in a Friday trade with the Pirates and worked a perfect eighth, striking out one.

If Torres time with the Yankees always felt like a family affair why should the day his No. 6 was retired be any different? "Its a long, long journey from the field to Monument Park," Torre said. "However, I was blessed to make that journey on the shoulders of some very special players." The recently inducted Hall of Famer unveiled his number alongside those of 16 other retired numbers in Monument Park at the start of the ceremony. With No. 6 forever out of circulation, that leaves Derek Jeters 2 as the only single digit number still being worn on Yankees pinstripes. The Yankees captain, who is retiring after this season, escorted Soot Zimmer, the wife of the late Don Zimmer, onto the field to present Torre with a proclamation from New York Mayor Bill de Blasio naming Saturday Joe Torre Day. Torre rode in a golf cart with Yogi Berra to the area in front of the mound, where the Yankees presented him with the 29th plaque to be placed in the area beyond the centre field wall at the stadium. The team also gave Torre a flashy commemorative ring. Torre, now an executive vice-president for Major League Baseball, is the fourth member of the Yankees teams that won four World Series titles from 1996-2000 to be honoured in Monument Park. Mariano Rivera was celebrated last season and Tino Martinez and Paul ONeill were givve plaques earlier this summer. [url= http://www.cheapadidasaustr...om/]Adidas Shoes Australia[/url]. Bernie Williams will be recognized next year. All but Rivera were on hand Saturday to pay tribute to the man who guided the Yankees to their first title since 1978 with a sense of calm and familial congeniality under George Steinbrenner, the combative owner. "Joes demeanour was always the same during the course of a game, during good times, bad times," said Joe Girardi, the Yankees current manager and catcher on three of Torres World Series teams. Torre, a Brooklyn native, took over as manager of the Bronx Bombers in 1996, and found instant success despite a losing record in 14 seasons at the helm of the New York Mets, Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals. The Yankees made the playoffs in each of Torres 12 seasons, winning six AL pennants. He was 1,173-767-2 in the regular season and 76-47 record in the post-season. "This group I had as far as nobody really cares who went to the All-Star game and nobody cared who got the headline in the newspaper -- it was all about rolling up their sleeves and pretty much letting me decide on the direction we were going," Torre said. "I wasnt always right but they always respected the fact that it was my decision." Torre left after the 2007 season after turning down a one-year contract, his relationship with the organization strained. But when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in July, Torre said, "Lets cut to the chase, Im here because of the New York Yankees." ' ' '
