By Joe Haakenson, Contributor -  JUNE 16, 2002 GAME 66 - ANGELS AT DODGERS LOS ANGELES – A Tim Salmon home run helped push the Angels to an early lead, but Jarrod Washburn gave up back-to-back home runs in the sixth and the Dodgers rallied for a 5-4 victory before 52,183 at Dodger Stadium. Salmon’s two-run homer in the fourth inning off Dodgers starter Hideo Nomo gave the Angels a 2-0 lead. After the Dodgers scored in the bottom of the fourth, the Angels added two more on an RBI triple by Adam Kennedy and a successful squeeze bunt by David Eckstein to go up 4-1. But Washburn surrendered a two-run homer to Eric Karros and a solo homer to Marquis Grissom to allow the Dodgers to get even. Angels reliever Al Levine gave up an RBI single to Mark Grudzielanek in the seventh inning, which proved to be the difference. With the loss, the Angels missed another chance to catch the Mariners for the A.L. West lead. Los Angeles Angels Tickets

Erick Aybar Homers, Tommy Hanson Fans Eight, Howie Kendrick Putting Up MVP Numbers

The pinstripes need to check their bats for holes. The New York Yankees, for a better lack of a term, are absolutely awful right now. Many in the sports world are happy about this due to their hatred for the “Yanks” but it’s becoming a serious issue for New York, and they fell for the fifth day in a row, this time at the hands of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, by a final...

Angels Player Power Rankings - Week 12

RANK PLAYER CHANGE COMMENTS 1 -- 0 Last Week: 1 Mike Trout - With the week he just had, the Angels should see to it that his entire extended family attends every single one of his games. I imagine giving him a fat contract extension would allow for him to pay for that himself. Sounds like a win-win...

Angels starting to look vintage; defeat Yankees 6-2

Hey, I remember this team. The decent starting pitchng. The shut down bullpen. The timely hitting and agressive baserunnig. The occasionally boneheaded play that ends up meaning nothing in the end. It's as if someone went down to the clubhouse and reminded Mik Scioscia what his teams used to excel at. Over the past two games the Angels have been the team on the offensive. Granted...

Initial impressions of the Angels 2013 draft class

During the recent draft, I happened to be on vacation, and even though I love this game and I LOVE prospects, there isn’t much that could take my focus away from my wife, the Atlantic waves and a cocktail.  Still, I’d done some homework before the draft on some players and did a little more digging following the draft as well.  We here at MWAH do our best to talk to the right...

Tim Tebow Nearly an Angel?

Don't take the title too literal folks. No, the man didn't have a near death experience and almost become an angel. It was something totally different. Back in the high school days he was nearly drafted by the Angels--Los Angeles Angles (or Anaheim back in his day I believe). Like many kids in high school, Tebow was a multi-sport athlete and played baseball in the...

Angels open the flood gates in the sixth to sing the Mariners, 11-3

Over the years the Angels have done well by themselves by beating up on the drecks of the AL West. If they are going to emerge from their season long slumber, they'd be wise to start doing that very thing once more. Granted, it didn't work out so well against the Astros, but when all else fails, there are the Seattle Mariners. For a minute there it looked like the Halos...
