Hank Conger and Mark Trumbo each hit two-run homers and C.J. Wilson worked out of a pair of bases-loaded jams to help give the Los Angeles Angels a 6-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners Friday night. Wilson (2-0) went 5 1-3 innings, allowing seven hits and three runs. He walked two and struck out a season-high nine. Ernesto Frieri pitched the ninth for his third save in three chances.

What to do about the Angels bullpen?

This season so far has been....some sort of ride. A rash of injuries has plagued the Angels, sending a good number of their starting regulars on the DL. A sudden outbreak of injuries opened up a sizeable number of spots for the kids on their way up from the minors to show off their goods out of the bullpen. Take, for instance, Angels 2012 9th round draft pick Michael Roth. This is...

Pitchers walk the high wire, Angels win 6-3 over Mariners

Games in which the Angels take a 5-0 lead should not end up being this stressful. But when your pitching staff is a collection of youngsters and reclammation projects, nothing is going to come easy. The hurlers almost threw this game up on more than one occassion but managed to wiggle out of enough trouble to get the win. I want to say the Mariners lost this game as much as the Halos...

Bats Go Silent; Angels Shutout by Mariners 6- 0

  Maurer came into tonight’s game with a 7.45 ERA.  Apparently, that was good enough because he was able to shutout the Angels through 6 1/3 innings.  But, that had more to do with the Angels’ bats, than Maurer’s pitching (I refuse to give him any credit).  The Angels just couldn’t find any momentum.  It was just one of those games.  No player reached third base...
