GAME 37 - ANGELS AT TIGERS
DETROIT -- Told the Seattle Mariners had lost Tuesday night, Angels manager Mike Scioscia responded: ''Did they? I didn't see.''
That's the mindset Scioscia is preaching to his club, 9-2 winners over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday before 12,745 at Comerica Park. Coupled with the Mariners' loss to the Blue Jays, the Angels are 4 1/2 games out in the A.L. West, the closest they've been since April 12.
The Angels have won six in a row and 15 of their past 17, matching the best 17-game stretch in club history (June 1-17 1998). But Scioscia says his players aren't patting themselves on the back.
''We're not looking at it in terms like that, because we also got off to the worst start in franchise history,'' he said of the 6-14 start. ''We're trying to keep the short-term focus. We're not looking past anything but (ton...
BEST OF MAXIM
When Josh Hamilton left after six innings of the Angels' 11-4 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Monday, it was not because of the lopsided score. Instead, Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said, Hamilton was "a little lightheaded."
Said Hamilton: "I was not lightheaded. I was just sick."

OFF DAY - NOTEBOOK
DETROIT -- While the Angels offense as a whole got off to a slow start, there were three in particular who struggled more noticeably than the others. But during the offense's surge in the past few weeks, the same three -- Tim Salmon, Brad Fullmer and Adam Kennedy -- have been a big part of it...
The Los Angeles Angels removed outfielder Josh Hamilton from last night's loss to the Kansas City Royals prior to the seventh inning.

Whatever the case, the Halos...

All the Angels want is a chance to turn things around but their thin, decimated roster just isn't affording them one. Take tonight for example. By the third inning the game was essentially over because of how far down the depth chart the Angels have had to go.
Barry Enright, who is the ninth starting pitcher the Halos have used this year, once again proved that he has no...

The state of Angels baseball, explained in commercials
By Glen McKee, AngelsWin.com columnist -
Wow, it’s been a rough season so far and the light on the horizon is dim at best. Injuries, bad contracts, uninspired play, and a lack of depth have conspired to give the Angels one of their worst starts ever and now even making the playoffs seems a Herculean task (and not...
