Angels shutout Red Sox to complete 4-game sweep

It was the first time since 1962 that the Angels sweep the Red Sox in Boston. Final score in Boston: Angels 2, Red Sox 0 On the day when the club found out one of the most important pitchers in the Angels starting rotation will be lost for 6 to 9 months, Matt Shoemaker showed the type of players this first-place team is made of.  Using pinpoint control of his fastball and slider over 7.2 innings Thursday night, Shoemaker took a no-hitter into the 7th inning before giving up a two-out double to Will Middlebrooks.  The rookie right-hander gave up one hit, while striking out nine and...

Rapid Reaction: Angels 2, Red Sox 0

Sox gave Beckham every opportunity

CHICAGO – If there is one thing the Chicago White Sox can’t be accused of, it is quitting on Gordon Beckham too soon. Beckham, who was traded Thursday to the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named later or cash considerations, played six seasons on the South Side and never did manage to meet the expectations he set for himself as an eighth overall pick in the 2008 draft. Only one year later the infielder arrived at the major league level and turned heads.

Losing Richards changes Angels' season

Here are six names: Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Hector Santiago, Matt Shoemaker, Tyler Skaggs and Garrett Richards. These are the only pitchers to start a game for the 2014 Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. It’s a small list that is an example of good health and good luck. For context, the Texas Rangers have relied on 13 different starting pitchers so far in 2014, seven more than the Angels. The Angels' barely-larger-than-necessary catalog starters also helps explain some of their success this year.
