Angels win review, get a scoring change Dan Haren just went from being the seventh-best pitcher in the American League to being No. 5 and he didn't have to get sweaty.
The Angels appealed an official scoring decision from their May 14 game at Texas and the MLB office agreed with them, taking an RBI hit away from Michael Young, an earned run away from Haren and saddling Erick Aybar with an error.
After that game, Mike Scioscia was adamant that the play was an error, saying Aybar would have it nine times out of 10.
Haren's ERA went from 2.24 to 2.13, sliding him ahead of Oakland's Gio Gonzalez and Seattle's Michael Pineda.
