Found July 19, 2012 on Monkey with a Halo:
When you hit your spots, you hit your spots. And the Angels hit nothing but a bump in the road.

Tigers 7, Angels 2

The Angels' offense came to play against a young Josh Turner just yesterday, but tonight, the Angels bats were not quite as lively.

Doug Fister was on his A-game this evening against the Halos, sans the mistake he threw to Albert Pujols in the top of the first inning. But from then on out, he was dialed in.

A great deal of the struggle came from starter C.J. Wilson. Being one of the few starters the Angels can count on in their rotation, tonight wasn't his night against the Tigers. He struggled with his command and allowed the Tigers to get those key hits with runners on base.

This game has sparked conversation regarding help in the Angels' starting rotation, and as the trade deadline nears, I hope that the Angels have something up their sleeves. 

This game was simply a bump in the road. We've all seen how they're capable of playing.

Momentum momentum momentum.  

Los Angeles Angels Prospect Report

By Scott Stedman - Prospect Reporter Salt Lake Bees - Salt Lake has dropped 7 out of their last 10.  However, catcher Hank Conger has really begun to swing the stick well.  In his last 10 games, Conger is hitting .350 with a .920 OPS in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.  But his defense behind the plate has remained average at best.  With Scioscia at...

Comerica Park Bomb Threat Can't Keep Mike Trout, Angels Offense From Exploding Against Tigers

The puns are way too easy to make, but Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim hit some bombs on Tuesday night at Comerica Park. It's fortunate that their offensive explosion was able to take place, though, as the game went off without a hitch despite a bomb threat against Comerica Park in Detroit. The Detroit Free Press reports that the bomb threat was called in to...

Enough with the contrived Mike Trout nicknames already

Stop it, America.  Just stop it. When the baseball loving free world isn't busy trying to figure out which Hall of famer Trout best compares to, they are busy trying to fabricate a nickname for the phenom. The Millville Meteor?  Maybe if it was 1947. The Franchise?  How very original. The Natural?  Original to the nth degree, but also the nickname of the best player of...

Trout (four hits, HR) powers Angels

Mike Trout had another four-hit game for Los Angeles, including a 430-foot homer that was part of an early power show in the Angels' 13-0 rout of the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. Trout, Mark Trumbo and Albert Pujols all homered off Jacob Turner in the first two innings, and Alberto Callaspo and Kendrys Morales went deep later in the game. It was the fourth four-hit game...

Five Angels go deep in rout of Tigers

DETROIT (AP) -- Earlier this week, Mike Trout had a chance to meet Al Kaline, the Hall of Famer who played for the Detroit Tigers and won a batting title in 1955 when he was 20 years old. After another four-hit night, Trout looks like he's on his way to a similar feat. Trout raised his American League-leading average to .355 on Tuesday night with the fourth four-hit game of...

Bats come alive in Fister’s gem, Tigers beat Angels 7-2

Things can certainly change a lot in a 24 hour period and the Tigers proved just that as they were able to put last night’s 13-0 disaster behind them and beat the Angels 7-2 Wednesday from Comerica. Start Doug Fister continues to look like the 2011 Fister that the Tigers acquired at the trade deadline. After a shaky start to the season and two trips to the DL, Fister was strong...

Improvement by Fister and Scherzer could be key to Tigers' second half

Two consecutive solid starts by Doug Fister may have taken some of the pressure off the Detroit Tigers to give up a prime prospect to get a rotation-stabilizing pitcher. The Tigers don't have a bad rotation, but they have a two-tier goal this year -- win the AL Central and the World Series -- and what they have right now might not be enough. Detroit wouldn't be ashamed...

Fister of Fury

It’s not the Year of the Tiger, but don’t tell Doug Fister that.  And don’t ask Mr. Fister to sing Kyrie, because that song kills kittens.  Fact!  He just followed up a strong start @BAL with a dominating performance against the T & T Angels:  8 IP, 10K, 1 ER, 4 baserunners.  It’s like September 2011 all over again.  I can’t wait to see that Straw Dogs remake...

Nick Punto Recalls Albert Pujols Home Run As Inception of 'Shredder' Nickname (Video)

As Cody Ross rounded third base after his walkoff home run on Thursday night, the Red Sox were there to greet with him hugs and cheers. But Nick Punto took on his alter-ego during the celebration and was intent on making the moment one to remember. Punto, who has been nicknamed "the shredder" for his role in past walkoff wins, has made quite an impact on his teammate, enough...

MLB first half highs and lows, bro

The first half of the 2012 season has not been what we’ve expected.  After all the hype surrounding the Miami Marlins and Albert Pujols, neither are living up to expectations.  Pujols is having the worst offensive season of his career and it’s truly an odd experience hearing fans boo him after a double play ground out or a weak pop fly.  The Marlins signed Jose Reyes, Health...
