GAME 139 - ANGELS AT DEVIL RAYS
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Stepping into the batter's box in the sixth inning Thursday night at Tropicana Field, Garret Anderson had already hit a three-run homer, a double and a single. A triple away from hitting for the cycle for the first time in his career, the Angels' left fielder ripped a line drive to right-center field.
It went over the fence.
Anderson was kidded that if he didn't touch homeplate and the play was appealed, he would have had the triple and the cycle.
``I wouldn't give up one of those to hit for the cycle,'' said Anderson, who tied a career-high with seven RBIs in the Angels' 10-1 win over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. ``You get it the right way or don't get it at all.''
The two homers gave Anderson 23 this season, passing Troy Glaus for the team lead. The double was his 51st, most in the majors.
``The difference with...

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.

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...

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- C.J. Wilson has been the Los Angeles Angels' best starter this season and a model of durability in his two years since leaving the Texas Rangers.
He still hadn't beaten his former club until he got a little help from his surging teammates Friday night.
Mark Trumbo hit a three-run homer and Wilson pitched into the seventh inning of the Angels'...

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 only made two unfixable mistakes against the Tampa Bay Rays, and rookie Wil Myers hit them far enough to send the Los Angeles Angels' longtime ace to another defeat.
Myers hit two homers off Weaver, and the Rays kept pace in the AL wild-card race with a 3-1 victory over Los Angeles on Wednesday night.
Weaver (9-8) yielded six hits over seven innings, but gave up...
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.

I have given up hope that the Angels will finish the season in the bottom ten record-wise. So with that said; win all the games Angels. Win them all. Maybe cause a little bit of brouhaha to close out the season. Which would make it interesting to see the Rangers and A’s quiver a little bit with this all-of-a-sudden white-hot Angels team.
Please forgive my enthusiasm. But the Angels...
The Angels have added big names such as Josh Hamilton, Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson in the past couple of offseasons and have been very active in trying to acquire premium talent. The Angels have given those three players a combined $354.5 million in the past two offseasons, but that hasn't led to the team winning. With the Angels struggling, the team will be shopping some of...
