GAME 68 - ANGELS AT CARDINALS
ST. LOUIS -- The Angels starting pitchers are a tight group. Beginning in spring training, they went to dinner together, talked pitching together and simply spent a lot of time together.
And in the last week or so, they've pitched poorly together.
Wednesday it was Aaron Sele's turn, and he gave up six runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings in a 6-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals before 35,432 at Busch Stadium.
All six runs scored on home runs, two by Placido Polanco, who entered the game with one home run all season. Albert Pujols also hit one, as the Angels starters have given up 15 homers in the past five games.
``It tells me they're pitching aggressively and throwing strikes,'' Angels pitching coach Bud Black said. ``They might not be hitting the locations they need to hit. What I tell them is they're going to give up home runs, every pitching staff...

Josh Hamilton has seen his star go from red hot on the Rangers to ice cold on the Angels, and he’s just in year one of a five year deal.
Hamilton’s struggles at the plate have reached historic lows and there’s no signs indicating a turnaround in sight. Hamilton has 4 more years left on a 5 year $125 million contract he signed in the off season with the Angels.
The award for the most creative stadium giveaway this season goes to the Los Angeles Angels.On Tuesday, the Angels gave away mesh hats featuring a fish protruding from the center in honor of All-Star center fielder Mike Trout. How awesome is that, folks?A big round of applause goes to the team's marketing department for coming up with the clever idea.The fashionable cap sure...
We’ll continue our look at the ten fantasy baseball trade hounds you may or may not want to find yourself in negotiations with this season. Every league has that dude that sends you a low-ball offer for Mike Trout, or maybe worse the guy who gives Mike Trout away for next to nothing because he just got back from his two year cruise in Aruba. We've all interacted with one at...
Josh Hamilton grounded into three double plays and struck out the other two times he came to the plate. Mike Trout did everything he could to will his team's offense into something resembling legitimacy. Instead, he was anchored at first, with Scioscia failing to employ his favorite (until this year) offensive tactic of activating his speedy base runners.
C.J. Wilson pitched two-hit ball for seven innings, Mike Trout scored the only run on a wild pitch by Joe Saunders and the Los Angeles Angels edged the Seattle Mariners 1-0 Wednesday night.
Wilson (6-5) struck out three, walked two and allowed only two runners as far as second base en route to his fifth straight victory over the Mariners.
Trout legged out a leadoff double in the...
It's been a time of transition for the Angels minor league system this season, but quite a few prospects are making the most of their opportunity and climbing the prospect ranks. Keep in mind folks, this is NOT a top prospect list, this is simply the best performers so far on the season.

Faith is a funny thing. For some it defines who they are as a person. It serves as the guiding principle of their entire life. For others, it is a crutch, a convenient excuse, a self-defense mechanism. In a lot of cases, it is both of those things for one person and there is no better example of that than Josh Hamilton.
We all know that Josh Hamilton is a man of great faith....
Last night in Anaheim, Josh Hamilton had a really bad game. In five trips to the plate, he hit into three double plays, and in the two at-bats where he didn’t make two outs, he struck out, including a ninth inning strikeout with the winning run in scoring position. For the day, he finished with a -.48 WPA, so while he didn’t single handedly cost them the game, he was the primary...
Alberto Callaspo drew a bases-loaded walk to bring home the tiebreaking run with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels rallied from an early seven-run deficit for a 10-9 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.

“One thing I’ll always knows, is that you’ll never know what will happen in baseball. Today, I’m wearing a hat with a fish on it.” – Reuben, the usher to the Angel Stadium press box.
Well, it seemed like that quote was true, as tonight, four solo home runs, and extra inning heroics were the final offensive factor in tonight’s 3-2 victory for the Seattle Mariners, over...

ST. LOUIS -- Troy Percival knows Jim Edmonds well. So well, the Angels closer wasn't about to challenge his friend and former teammate with the game on the line.
With a one-run lead and the potential tying run on third base with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Percival walked...
