By Joe Haakenson, AngelsWin.com Contributor -  MAY 22, 2002 GAME 44 - ROYALS AT ANGELS ANAHEIM – It would have been completely understandable had the Angels lost Wednesday night's game to the Kansas City Royals.

But Byrd eventually tired and the Angels started scoring. And scoring. Tim Salmon's two-run homer in the seventh got the Angels going, before a five-run eighth inning pushed the Angels past the Royals for a 7-6 victory before 16,163 at Edison Field. The big hits in the fateful eighth were Darin Erstad's two-run double, which tied the game at 5, and Garret Anderson's two-run double, which gave the Angels the lead.

Can Mike Trout snatch the MVP?

On May 21st, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout became the youngest American League player to hit for the cycle since 1930 at 21 years old.

VIDEO: Idiot KC fan runs on field, steals rosin bag, earns tweet response from Angel reliever

Last night's Angels-Royals game was an eventful one between tape measure home runs, copious pitching changes and a narrowly avoided blown save. Still, the Angels managed to win their fifth game in a row, yet that is not the highlight of the game. That distinction goes to the insane and/or brave Royals fan who sprinted on the field and avoided security long enough that he not...

How The West Was Lost

There is plenty of attention on Los Angeles baseball right now, but it’s for all the wrong reasons.  Both LA teams (We’ll go ahead and consider the Angels a Los Angeles team for this exercise) have huge payrolls and are grossly underperforming.  Both teams have offensive stars that are providing very little offense.  Both teams have suffered their fair share of physical injuries...
