Angels Big Hit Over A's Arrives in Extras

Angels Big Hit Over A's Arrives in Extras

...finally... Some hits in a baseball game are more like a laxative than a fan would ever care to admit. And still we will have to wait and see if Major League Baseball upholds a protest filed in the game by A's manager Bob Melvin. But as it stands, the Angels are the first team to 80 wins in the major leagues and gives the Halos a two-game lead in the AL West Standings. Howie Kendrick hit a sac fly with nobody out in the bottom of the tenth inning to score Albert Pujols from 3B after the Halos walked away from numerous chances to score with the bases loaded. In the bottom of the ninth...

Angels' Albert Pujols is again showing stellar form

Every now and then, Albert Pujols reminds us of what he once did on a remarkably regular basis, unleashing the efficient, potent swings that were his trademark when he was voted the National League most valuable player three times and was one of the top power hitters of his generation, or any...

Matt Shoemaker pitches Angels back into first place, 8-2

Matt Shoemaker pitches Angels back into first place, 8-2

The Halo offense smack 16 hits in rout of Miami. Final in Anaheim: Angels 8, Marlins 2 After being beaten by Miami 7-1 in the opening game of their 3-game series on Monday night, the Angels lost their lone hold atop the AL West.  That lasted just one day however, as the Angels led by the pitching of Matt Shoemaker and the hitting of Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, and David Freese regained their one-game lead over the Oakland A's by pounding the Marlins Tuesday night, 8-2. Shoemaker (13-4, 3.33 ERA) tossed 7 shutout innings, giving up just 2 hits and 2 walks, while striking out six.  Over his...

First Place Angels Hand Friday Night Game To A's

First Place Angels Hand Friday Night Game To A's

Oakland makes the Halos pay for even the slightest miscues. The Angels lost a close game that was in hand when they made the most minor defensive misjudgements. Jason Grilli gave up what should have been a one-out groundout that Howie Kendrick just could not get out of his glove. A booming gapper scored the go ahead run to break a 2-2 tie and a sac fly scored Oakland's fourth run. Albert Pujols grounded into a double play to make A's starter Sonny Gray look masterful but as it was A.P.'s 23rd DeePee of the season it shouldn't make a guy look all that special. Hector Santiago started and...

Tuesday Angels Lineup - Hamilton Returns

Josh Hamilton back in the #4 spot Mike Scioscia's lineup card for Tuesday night's contest between his Angels and his host, the Boston Red Sox: Kole Calhoun RF Mike Trout CF Albert Pujols 1B Josh Hamilton LF Howie Kendrick 2B Erick Aybar SS David Freese 3B Brennan Boesch DH Chris Iannetta C All of this in support of Jered Weaver pitching. Hamilton is back after two days out to take a mental break. Perhaps just as interesting will be to watch Albert at 1B tonight after two days DHing... is he sharper?

Angels Go Gutless WIth Bases Loaded

Halos are 0 for 5 with bases loaded The Texas Rangers repeatedly tried to hand Sunday's baseball game to the Angels. The Halos declined like a champion dieter turning down free donuts. Mike Trout broke out of an 0 for 18 slump with a base hit only to be picked off first base. When he walked to lead off the eighth inning he was decoyed at 2B on a booming Albert Pujols double and only made it to 3B. Gary DiSarcina declined to send him home even though the LF was lobbing the ball back. Walking the next batter led to three straight outs with the bases loaded - the Halos were 0 for 5 with the...
