Unprodcutive Outs

With pinch-runner Reggie Willits on second base, representing the tying run in the bottom of the ninth, and nobody out, the Angels had a great chance to score an important run.

Juan Rivera, though, was unable to move Willits to second.  After a walk by Mike Napoli, Erick Aybar came to the plate and proceeded to swing from his heels in the process of striking out.    

Those two at-bats ruined any chance the Angels had of completing the comeback.  Simply, Juan Rivera must move that runner over.  

Of course, had Justin Speier done his job in the top of the ninth, Torii Hunter‘s home run would have tied the game.  

Shoulda, woulda, coulda.
