I'm worn out/Lackey mad about being pulled

Yesterday's game took a lot out of me. I have to recharge. Let's hope Mike is up to the challenge.

Lackey is fuming over getting pulled.

Angel starter John Lackey sat in the dugout with a towel over his head and stewed.

"I felt great; I felt like I had a lot left," Lackey said after giving up one run and two hits in 5 2/3 innings, a brilliant, 78-pitch effort delivered on three days' rest and on short notice -- scheduled Game 4 starter Jarrod Washburn was scratched because of a throat infection about seven hours before the first pitch.

"I was a little disappointed. Not to take anything away from Scotty, he's had a great year, but you want to be the guy making pitches with the game on the line, and I felt I pitched well enough to decide that game for us."
