  • Angels' little deal for relief trumped by A's big one for starters

    Cespedes' throw, Cowgill's homer highlight Angels' 14-inning win over A's
    That Collin Cowgill hit a walk-off home run with two outs in the 14th inning to lift the Angels to a thrilling 2-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night wasn’t all that surprising. Despite his smallish 5-foot-9, 185-pound frame and...

    BALTIMORE — Entering a 10-game homestand on June 6, the Baltimore Orioles were in second place in the American League East, 5 1-2 games behind the Toronto Blue Jays. With the Jays, fellow AL East rival Boston, and AL West-leading Oakland coming...

    Angels slide past Twins, 8-6
    KEY MOMENT: With the Angels leading, 7-6, Kevin Jepsen allowed a leadoff double to Danny Santana and walked Brian Dozier to open the seventh. But Howie Kendrick turned a nifty double play when he backhanded Joe Mauer's grounder, stepped on second,...
  • Kevin Jepsen lets Howie Kendrick turn key double play in Angels' win

    The natural instinct for a pitcher on a grounder up the middle is to lunge for the ball with your glove, stop it with your foot, do anything to knock it down. Angels reliever Kevin Jepsen fought that urge in the seventh inning Tuesday night, and it led to...
  • Angels' Albert Pujols remains focused and gets results

    Angels' Albert Pujols remains focused and gets results
    The word "slump" exists for Albert Pujols, and the Angels slugger will occasionally drop it into conversation, but that doesn't mean he puts much stock into it. "I don't believe in slumps," Pujols said. "I think that's something people have created to...
  • Garrett Richards doesn't get caught in jam this time for Angels

    The Angels were four batters into a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday when Garrett Richards put them in a three-run hole by walking two and giving up a three-run home run to Jose Abreu. The Richards of 2012 or 2013 may have...
  • Joe Smith double dips in Angels' doubleheader sweep of White Sox

    Joe Smith double dips in Angels' doubleheader sweep of White Sox
    Sidearm-throwing Joe Smith is not your prototypical closer, a guy “who comes in throwing 97 miles per hour with a nasty breaking ball,” as Manager Mike Scioscia said. The Angels don’t care as long as Smith continues to do what he did...
  • Mike Trout thinks small, comes up huge in Angels' win over White Sox

    Chris Sale’s full-count changeup to Angels slugger Mike Trout with the bases loaded in the eighth inning Saturday night was shin-high and several inches off the plate, a pitch Chicago White Sox Manager Robin Ventura said was “probably ball...
  • Angels seem to have benefited from bad trip

    To hear pitcher C.J. Wilson tell it, the Angels might look back on their most recent trip as the turning point of a season. The club won only three of 10 games on the trip, which included the Angels being swept in three games by the division-leading...
  • Collin Cowgill powers Angels to 2-1 victory over Athletics

    KEY MOMENT: Collin Cowgill ended the game in the 14th inning on a two-out home run to left field that barely cleared the glove of Oakland outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. Athletics pitcher Jeff Francis took the loss as the Angels posted their fifth consecutive...

    Angels to have Josh Hamilton, Mike Trout for Astros series
    The Angels’ lineup is expected to be at full strength for the first time since the opening week of the season when the team begins a three-game series against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park on Tuesday night. Left fielder Josh Hamilton, out...
