GAME 138 - ANGELS AT DEVIL RAYS
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The first thing Adam Kennedy will do this afternoon when he walks into the Angels clubhouse at Tropicana Field is check the lineup. After all, a left-handed pitcher is starting for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and that usually has meant a seat on the bench for the left-handed-hitting second baseman.
Kennedy, though, has rendered meaningless the statistical matchups game many managers play with a hot bat that continued to sizzle in the Angels' 4-2 victory before 10,161 fans. Kennedy went 3 for 4, scored two runs, drove in another, stole a base and played solid defense as the Angels won their sixth game in a row.
Angels starting pitcher Kevin Appier maintained his status as the club's most consistent pitcher, giving up two runs and six hits in seven innings to improve to 14-9. Scott Schoeneweis and Troy Percival (33rd save) combined for the final two in...

One pitcher who really opened some eyes during Spring Training this year was Victor Alcatara. Pronounced "all-KAWN-truh", he lit up the radar guns, hitting triple digits several times. This was partially how in only his second season of professional baseball, and at age 20, the Angels brought him straight...

What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title

Collin Cowgill hit a three-run double, one of 11 hits the Los Angeles Angels got against reigning AL Cy Young winner David Price through his first 2 1-3 innings, and Jerome Williams ended a streak of eight straight losing decisions in a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night.

Jerome Williams got back into the win column for the first time in more than 2 1-2 months. The fact that he beat reigning AL Cy Young Award winner David Price and the contending Tampa Bay Rays made it that much sweeter.

Like a visit from your Uncle Charley, scheduled for a couple of weeks, now turned into months. The refrigerator cleaned of beer, the TV clicker worn to black, your car without gas, and cigarette butts now littering your lawn. This season has stayed too long.
A ship’s visible manager and crew now turned into human dart boards...
Jered Weaver has rounded back into form as the season has worn on, but tonight, he didn't quite have his sharpest command. The ace surrendered two long home runs to Rays rookie Will Myers, and just didn't seem to ever get his fastball control quite where it needed to be. Still, the pitcher didn't really ever give in and battled the whole night through.
Last night, the Ray's Chris Archer fell apart against an Angels team that he absolutely dominated the week before. Tonight, it was Jason Vargas' turn to do the ol' switcheroo. A week after holding the Rays to just two hits in 7 innings, the Angels lefty struggle mightily with command, surrendering 10 hits and five runs before mercifully being yanked for a bullpen...
