ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Bartolo Colon threw 38 consecutive strikes at one point and pitched four-hit ball for eight innings to help the Oakland Athletics beat the cellar-dwelling Los Angeles Angels 6-0 on Wednesday night. Colon (3-1) struck out five and walked none, helping drop his former team six games behind two-time defending AL champion Texas in the AL West -- just 12 games into the season. The 38-year-old's consecutive strikes streak ended on an 0-1 pitch to Bobby Abreu with one out in the eighth. Colon won the 2005 AL Cy Young Award after helping lead the Angels to a division title with a 21-8 record and 3.48 ERA. The two-time All-Star is 3-2 with a 2.05 ERA in five starts against them since leaving the organization and signing with Boston as a free agent in February 2008. Colon, whose three previous starts this season all were against Seattle, has walked only two batters in his first 27 1-3 innings and has made 18 consecutive starts with fewer than three -- one off hi...

Aybar signs extension with Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The agreement between the Angels and shortstop Erick Aybar on a contract extension can only be viewed in positive terms, both for the club and the player. By signing Aybar for four years and 35 million after earlier locking up second baseman Howie Kendrick long term, the team has now secured its middle infielders through the 2016 season. But shelling out big contracts...

Trumbo not angered by lack of playing time

It has become one of the questions surrounding the Angels as they've stumbled to a 4-7 start: Why isn't Mark Trumbo playing more? The young slugger led the team with 29 home runs and 87 RBI last season and finished second in the American League Rookie of the Year voting. However, he was displaced from first base by the signing of Albert Pujols. The plan was to get Trumbo...

Mistakes haunt Angels as slump continues

ANAHEIM, Calif. The day started with a celebration, but it ended glumly again for the Angels. No matter what they do, it doesn't seem to come out well. Their losses are starting to look bizarre. Thursday night at Angel Stadium, they out-hit the Oakland A's but left 11 base runners and lost 4-2. Every little thing works against them; every mistake comes back to haunt them...

Angels lack consistency, time to 'grind it out'

ANAHEIM, Calif. If there was a blueprint to the Angels' season, it looked nothing like this. The pitching was supposed to be dependable every night. The hitting was a sure thing. The defense was solid. But 12 games into the season, there isn't consistency in any area. The Angels lack energy and focus. Is it any wonder that manager Mike Scioscia addressed his concerns with...

Game Recap 4/17/12 -- Wow.....just...wow - Athletics 5 Angels 3

You know... I'm glad the game went the way it did in the 8th because maybe now Scioscia will stop putting so much undeserved trust into Kevin Jepsen. Jesus Christ the guy is garbage, he's always been bad and people think just because he put up a tolerable year in '10 that he's going to somehow find the potential that he doesn't have. Maybe Dipoto will be able...

Angels stay winless vs. Athletics, lose series

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Kurt Suzuki and Kila Ka'aihue drove in runs, Oakland scored two more on C.J. Wilson's throwing error in his home debut, and the Athletics beat the struggling Los Angeles Angels 4-2 Thursday night for their third straight victory. Tommy Milone (2-1) allowed seven hits in five innings in his native Southern California to win the eighth start of his...

MLB Update: Angels/Yankees No Match For Red Sox/Yankees; Ratings Flat For FOX Season Debut

Orioles-Angels Preview

If there was ever a time for Albert Pujols to hit his first home run with the Los Angeles Angels, Friday night's series opener with the Baltimore Orioles would seem to be it. Pujols and the Angels look to continue the nightmare for Baltimore's Brian Matusz, who has been dreadful while losing 11 straight decisions. Much has been made of Pujols still without a homer in his...
