  • Angels can't hold back Indians in 4-1 loss

    Angels lose to Mariners, 4-3, and also lose their tempers
    SEATTLE — The Angels lost to the Seattle Mariners, 4-3, Sunday in Safeco Field, but they didn't go down without a fight … among themselves. Struggling right-hander Joe Blanton knocked a water cooler off the bench and snapped at pitching...
  • Angels must assess who'll pitch in to help turn things around

    It has been a nice little run for the Angels since Aug. 23, their 21-8 record before Monday's game against Oakland taking some sting out of another disappointing season, but they can't let it fool them into thinking they can roll into 2014 with this...
