Dave Gallagher said third base coach Bobby Knoop's decision to send him from second base on Gary Gaetti's eighth-inning single was "the right thing to do," even though the Angels trailed, 5-2, and Gallagher was thrown out at the plate. Mark Whiten's throw from right field and a good block by catcher Joel Skinner erased that scoring attempt. "Right now, we're not winning, so (that play) is bigger than it is," Gallagher said.

Dave Gallagher, the newest Angel, is a member of the New Jersey Inventors' Hall of Fame and once bowled a 300 game. Or so he told beat writers during his first stint with the Angels in 1991. Turned out that in addition to being a solid outfielder and a quality hitter, he has been known to tell a tall tale or two. "He's an excellent player," Manager Marcel Lachemann said. "And he has a great personality on top of it. I think he fits in great."

To make his biography in the Angels' media guide more impressive, reserve outfielder Dave Gallagher took some license with a few facts. Despite his claims, he never was an All-American soccer player, and he certainly isn't a member of the New Jersey Inventors' Hall of Fame. There probably isn't a New Jersey Inventors' Hall of Fame. But when next year's media guide lists a five-hit day for Gallagher against the Baltimore Orioles, it will be truthful.

Angel outfielder Dave Gallagher gained a measure of satisfaction by preventing his former team from gaining ground in the AL West. Gallagher's bases-clearing double in the eighth inning Thursday off White Sox reliever Brian Drahman completed the Angels' second rally of the game and gave them a 7-4 victory over Chicago at Anaheim Stadium. Gallagher broke a 4-4 tie and lifted the Angels to .500 at 70-70.

The guy named Dave who sparked the Angels on Saturday night doesn't cast a long shadow or create huge gusts of wind when he swings the bat. Dave Gallagher, the little Dave on a team that features Dave Winfield and Dave Parker, made the offense go in his own little way. Gallagher, who at 6 feet is dwarfed by Winfield (6-6) and Parker (6-5), had two singles and scored the go-ahead run in the eighth inning to give the Angels a 2-1 victory over Minnesota at Anaheim Stadium.

Dave Gallagher, an Angel outfielder and one of the leaders of a group of spirited reserves, is too friendly to be a loner. But when he uncovers a reason, he will go his own way in a heartbeat. Take 1987, when Gallagher left baseball, flying home to New Jersey from a triple-A game in Vancouver. It was August, and he was hitting .306 for the Calgary Cannons. But after almost eight seasons in the minors and four in triple A, he had decided that he would set a deadline and then face facts.

Wally Joyner doesn't usually warm up at the plate until the weather does. But if he waited until the end of this damp and chilly spring to get his offensive game together, he might never thaw out. So, although the elements are conspiring against him, the Angel first baseman is combatting the cold with hot hitting. He was two for two with two walks and two runs batted in Wednesday in the Angels' 5-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs, a strong follow-up to his two doubles in four at-bats Tuesday.

Yes, it's true: The Angels have pitched back-to-back shutouts. No, hell hasn't frozen over, although Comiskey Park nearly did before reliever Bryan Harvey iced Kirk McCaskill's 3-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox Monday night. Amid extraordinary conditions--temperatures dipped below 40 degrees and winds provided a mighty chill factor--the Angels accomplished an extraordinary feat, matching Bert Blyleven's Sunday shutout with another on Monday to extend the pitching staff's scoreless streak to 24 2/3 innings.
