Found July 10, 2013 on Fox Sports West:
CHICAGO (AP) -- Josh Hamilton hit two home runs, Albert Pujols also connected and the Los Angeles went deep a season-high five times in a 13-2 rout of the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night. Mark Trumbo and Brendan Harris also homered for the Angels. All five of the Angels' home runs were no-doubters. They hit a pair during a five-run first inning and then followed with three more in a six-run fifth, providing more than enough support for C.J. Wilson (9-6). The Angels have won 11 of 14. Once 12 games under .500, they are now within two games of the break-even mark -- since June 12, they have the best record in baseball at 17-8. The Cubs had their four-game winning streak snapped, a day after they hit five home runs to beat the Angels 7-2.

The Los Angeles Angels could soon get Tommy Hanson back.  The veteran starter has been rehabbing a right forearm strain, but he is about to take a major step forward.  Hanson is still likely going to be out for a few weeks after the All-Star break, but at least the Angels can start looking forward to his return, barring nay setbacks of course.

Angels Trade Candidate: Prospects

Thanks a lot, Angels. Here I am doing a weekly series on which players on your MLB roster you should trade at the deadline since you are so obviously going to be a seller and you have to go and rattle off a winning streak to put yourselves within striking distance of .500 and spitting distance of the Wild Card race. Now I don't know if the Halos are going to be buyers or...

The Fun Is Just Starting, Angels Beat The Cubs 13-2

Holy guacamole! The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim put a pretty serious butt kicking on the Chicago Cubs tonight, with a 13-2 win. It seemed like everyone in the Angels lineup was “on” tonight, as all starters, including starting pitcher C.J. Wilson, had at least one hit tonight and the team had a total of 15 by the end of the game. Speaking of C.J. Wilson, he didn’t have too...

Angels fall, listlessly, to the Woeful Cubs, 7-2

It was as if a fairy tale had come to a shuddering, depressing, fiery end. Joe Blanton, bringer of home runs, feigning effectiveness as a major league starting pitcher the past few weeks, decided to lay a new rotten egg. The latest trick of his was to surrender four home runs to the second-to-last-place Cubs. It's difficult to put into words just how badly the Blanton signing...

The Halos clobber Samardzija; Angels defeat the Cubs, 13-2

If this is how it's going to be the rest of the season, the Angels may still be in for quite the postseason run. When owner Arte Moreno lured Josh Hamilton away from the Texas Rangers last winter, he envisioned nights like this one occurring all summer long. Angels fans anticipated an offense so prodigious that every ballpark the ballclub set foot in would be painted red after...

Angels-Mariners Preview

Seattle Mariners starter Joe Saunders is still looking for his first victory over his first major-league club, although that's not entirely his fault. He's enjoyed success against several of the Los Angeles Angels' stars, and has shut down Josh Hamilton this season after previously struggling in those matchups.
