Los Angeles Angels
New York Yankees
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- J.J. Hardy and Manny Machado each hit a two-run homer off Jerome Williams in his first start of the season, leading the Baltimore Orioles to an 8-4 victory over the reeling Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.
Jason Hammel (4-1) allowed four runs and nine hits through six innings, helping the Orioles tie the New York Yankees for second place in the AL East. The right-hander came in 0-3 with a 7.31 ERA in three previous starts against the Angels.
Mike Trout homered for the Angels, whose 11-20 start has matched the worst in franchise history. They have lost seven of nine and are a season-worst nine games behind first-place Texas in the AL West despite the offseason addition of 2010 AL MVP Josh Hamilton. Their only victory in this four-game series came Friday night, when Jason Vargas won 4-0 with a three-hitter.
Hammel's biggest pitch of the game was his 107th and final one, when he slipped a called third strike past Trout to strand Erick Aybar at second base an...
BEST OF MAXIM
One more note on the Angels - Orioles game. As everyone knows, Josh Hamilton has been awful so far with the Angels after signing this huge contract. He is continuing his trend from last year at swinging at everything and is batting like .208 or something. And so his manager sat him yesterday against the Orioles. That was dumb.
Why was it dumb when Hamilton just went zero for...

I’m sure by now you’ve realized that many of the Angels faithful have a problem with the playing of Build Me Up, Buttercup by The Foundations during the seventh inning. And by “problem” I mean the absolute hatred and revulsion that most hardcore Angels fans feel toward this song.
And it’s really a pity...
The Baltimore Orioles have purchased the contract of veteran starter Freddy Garcia from Triple-A Norfolk. To make room for him Baltimiore has designated pitcher Zach Clark for assignment. Clark will have to clear waivers for the Orioles to have a shot at retaining his services. In an unrelated move, Baltimore has outrighted catcher Luis Exposito to the same minor league affiliate...
Baltimore Orioles general manager Dan Duquette is always
looking for ways of improving his club, and the team has been tied to starting pitching and an impact bench bat recently. One National League GM told Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe that the O’s are specifically seeking a “veteran,
battle-tested pitcher to really finish off their staff,” which he believes

You know variations of the line, “He could have fallen down, gotten back up and still beaten it out”? Well, Angels catcher Hank Conger did just that. On Sunday, the Orioles were defending the left-handed hitting Conger with a hefty infield shift swung around toward first base. Manny Machado, the O’s third baseman was playing where the shortstop is normally...
Pitcher Zach Clark was outrighted to the Baltimore Orioles Double-A Bowie minor league affiliate today. He had been designated for assignment a few days ago and will provide pitching depth for the organization.

There is a new entry on the extinct species list: the Scioscia apologist. As of today, I am done. Done with sticking up for Mike Scioscia. In the struggles of the last few years there have been few who have defended Scioscia as ardently as I have. But now I must relent and admit that it is now time for the Angels to fire Mike Scioscia.
And I mean that literally they need to fire...

During this offseason, the biggest free agent on the market Josh Hamilton signed with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Texas Rangers failed to resign him and he decided to sign with their American League West rival the Angels to the tune of 5 yrs/ $125M.
So far Hamilton is batting .207 with only 2 long balls and 9 RBI’s, not quite the stat line the Angeles had anticipated...
Baltimore fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief, as the knee injury first baseman Chris Davis sustained in Friday's game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim does not appear to be as severe as initially thought.
Davis did some running on the field. Said everything felt good. Is wearing brace on that right knee.

The Los Angeles Angels will be giving away trout hats in honor of superstar phenom Mike Trout on June 18 against the Seattle Mariners.
Steve Pearce's RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning lifted the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday.
Baltimore also got homers from Manny Machado, J.J. Hardy and Nolan Reimold.
Garrett Richards (1-3) making his first relief appearance after five starts in place of the injured Jered Weaver, gave up a leadoff single through the box...
Watching the Angels this season, I keep thinking, "Why does Mike Scioscia need this?"
This is his 14th season in Anaheim. His best teams had an aggressive, distinctive style. This one revolves largely around two free-agent sluggers whose worst years are ahead of them, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton.
The Angels no longer run. They no longer play crisp defense. They'...
You can snag one of these fancy Trout caps when the Los Angeles Angels face the Seattle Mariners (how fitting) on June 18. Not in the Anaheim area? No problem. Since the less-fancy, first edition foam Trout hats are going for roughly $25 on eBay, the newer models will likely be bartered online in no time. Besides, they really don't look any more ridiculous...
ANAHEM, Calif. -- With the Angels tying their worst start in franchise history -- an 11-20 record matching the futility of their 1961 inaugural season -- manager Mike Scioscia is under fire from the media and, of course, some fans.
They're already calling for his head; Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com has suggested Scioscia and owner Arte Moreno should workout a contract settlement...
