GAME 72 - ANGELS AT BREWERS
MILWAUKEE -- The Angels offense was so good during the series against the Milwaukee Brewers, it only needed two innings Sunday afternoon to complete its work for the day.
The Angels got all five runs and six of their nine hits in the first two innings and made it stand up in a 5-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in front of 23,751 at Miller Park, completing a three-game sweep and winning their fourth in a row.
Because Seattle also won, the Angels remain two games back of the first-place Mariners in the American League West, and one game ahead of third-place Oakland.
Darin Erstad had the big hit, a three-run double with two outs in the second inning off Brewers starter Ben Sheets (4-8). The last time the Angels faced Sheets was the final spring training game in Arizona on March 28. Erstad wasn't in the lineup that day but the first nine Angels hitters in that game got a hit off...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Los Angeles Angels have elected to give outfielder Josh Hamilton the weekend off due to a sore wrist, according to Alden Gonzalez of
MLB.com. Hamilton will sit for the team’s weekend series against the Pittsburgh
Pirates and won’t rejoin the lineup until at least Tuesday.
Hamilton’s right wrist injury flared up during an intense
pregame hitting drill roughly...
In this day and age, it seems like everyone and everything gets its own meme. As such, it should be no surprise that Mike Trout now has a burgeoning meme in his honor, what with him being the best player alive and all. The new trend taking Twitter by storm is #Trouting, which is basically taking pictures of themselves striking a pose that resemble the famous photo of Trout running...
The terrible month of June for Hamilton just got a ‘shot’ of bittersweet news.
Hamilton’s wrist became inflamed about 10 days after an ‘intense’ hitting drill, and on Friday he received a cortisone shot.
It’s expected that the slumping former MVP will be out at least until Tuesday as he tries to recover from the injury.
Could the days off getting better prove to be...

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have signed Hunter Green, their first pick of the 2013 MLB Draft. Green is a 6-foot-4, 180 pound, seventeen-year-old (eighteen on July 12), left-handed pitcher out of Warren East High School in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
The wait to draft Green was long for Angels Scouting Director Ric Wilson, as the Angels did not have a first round pick, and had...
The Los Angeles Angels lost center fielder Peter Bourjos
yesterday, as he exited the team’s contest against the Pittsburgh Pirates after
injuring his left thumb. As of last night, the Angels were still awaiting results
of initial tests on Bourjos’ thumb, according to William Boor of MLB.com.
While it’s unclear exactly when the injury was sustained, it

What a game
Despite the Angels taking an early lead on some fielding shenanigans by the Pirates offense that Joe Blanton held marvelously through 7 innings the Angels bullpen was not able to keep it together to give the Angels and Blanton a much needed win. It's a shame to see the Angels lose so much momentum so fast after an incredible game against the Seattle Mariners just...
When Josh Hamilton signed with the LA Angels this offseason for five years and $125 million, the Angels front office was assuming that they were getting the Josh Hamilton that hit the would-be game winning home run in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. They were gambling that the fact that Josh had hit for .245/.322/.487 and 22 HR since June 2012 thru the rest of last season was just...

ANGELS AT BREWERS
MILWAUKEE -- A masterpiece it wasn't, but Jarrod Washburn's paint-by-numbers pitching performance Saturday night was all about the results.
The Angels' starter needed 122 pitches to work his way through six innings, but when he was finished the Milwaukee Brewers had scored...
When dealing with unknown commodities of future potential, the most common analogy used within the prospect world is the stock market. Investors put their money on the line with the potential opportunity of receiving a big pay out if a company "goes big", but at the same time they are in danger of losing it all if a stock is busted. Similarly with prospects, Major League...

10:05 PM–Angel Stadium, Anaheim
The Bucs look to keep things rolling in another late game tonight out in Los Angeles. They’ll go for three in a row and a series win. So far the Bucs have played quite well against the AL – they are 7-3 with 9 more game to go.
Francisco Liriano (5-3, 2.44) vs....
Normally, I'd be plenty happy with two wins in three games on the road, particularly on the West Coast with AL rules against a decent offense like the Angels with a ton of pitchers on the disabled list. Here's the thing, though: Joe Blanton is starting for the Angels today. Joe Blanton has served up taters like a lunch lady this year. He's got a 5.62 ERA and the Angels...
It's getting harder and harder to write something original about the Angels these days. It sure looks like the team is starting to realize this won't be there year. Tonight's game was a perfect showcase of a team that just doesn't seem to know what to do. They have struggled all season to get any sort of rhythm and rather than get angry the team seems to be going...
