Found August 04, 2012 on Fox Sports:
Alex Rios hit his second homer of the game, connecting for a two-run shot in the 10th inning Friday night that lifted the Chicago White Sox over the Los Angeles Angels 8-6. Rios also hit a solo homer as the White Sox won their third in a row. The Angels lost their third straight, with starter Zack Greinke roughed up in his second start for his new team. Adam Dunn singled off Hisanori Takahashi (0-3) to open the 10th. Pinch runner Jordan Danks stole second with one out before Rios hit his 18th home run. Matt Thornton (4-6) pitched a scoreless 10th. A.J. Pierzynski's three-run homer highlighted a four-run first. Greinke allowed six runs and 10 hits over seven innings. Albert Pujols and Mike Trout homered for the Angels.

2011 seems long ago for Rios

Alex Rios quietly had a stellar first half, but the second half is now a little louder. The latest example of that came Friday night in the Chicago White Sox's 8-6, 10-inning win over the Los Angeles Angels, when Rios' second homer of the game was a walk-off shot. Rios is now hitting .318 with 18 homers, after looking like a bust last season, when he batted .227 with...

Trout reels in greater awards, more followers

One of the problems with playing on the West Coast is that players sometimes get overlooked at post-season awards time. That's not likely to happen this year, certainly not with Angels rookie Mike Trout on virtually everyone's radar. Trout has been at the head of the American League Rookie of the Year class almost since he joined the Angels on April 28. He's been a...

Albert Pujols gets angry after fan prevents him from catching foul ball (Video)

Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols was pretty angry Saturday night after a Chicago White Sox fan in the second row of the stands prevented him from catching a foul ball. It happened in the first inning on a foul popup by White Sox batter A.J. Pierzynski. Pujols reached into the front row of the stands to catch the ball and would have caught it, had it not been...

Scioscia protests 1st inning call in Angels' loss

Mike Scioscia contends that a first-inning call by the umpires changed the course of the Los Angeles Angels' extra-inning loss to the Chicago White Sox.

Angels playing game under protest

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Los Angeles Angels are playing their Friday night game against the Chicago White under protest.

After getting the out at home, catcher Chris Iannetta fired wide to first, pulling Albert Pujols off the bag. Angels manager Mike Scioscia...

MLB American League Keeps Getting Better via Anaheim Angels

Making the playoffs just got that much harder. That is, if your team plays in the American League. The MLB non-waiver trade deadline continued the wave of talent heading out to the land where the pitchers do not pick up a bat and Adam Dunn can still hit bombs. Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols flocked to the superior league in the winter but the happenings over the past few days...

Angels have yet to start extension talks with Greinke

Los Angeles Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto paid a fairly steep price to acquire Zack Greinke from the Milwaukee Brewers last week. The Angels sent their top position prospect, infielder Jean Segura, and two more top-10 prospects (right-handers Johnny Hellweg and Ariel Pena) to the Brewers for the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner. That price will only look steeper if the Angels...

The Angels really need a reliever, so why not Marmol?

Everybody knows the Angels need bullpen help if they want to get to the postseason, and the last two games against the Rangers have been the “Exhibit A” of why they need bullpen help. On Wednesday, the Angels blew a six runs lead (five earned runs allowed by the bullpen) and lost 11-10 in ten innings, and yesterday, the bullpen worked hard again, allowing six more earned runs...

Game Recap 8/2/12: Perspective - Rangers 15, Angels 9

The Angels lost again.  The bullpen was a mess again.  The defense was miserable again.  Everything sucks again... ...but not really. It is a shame that the Angels finished this series in Texas with a split given how the series started.  But if you take a step back for some perspective, can we really be upset about a split?  In case you forgot, Texas is a really, really good...

How Do August Waiver Trades Work?

Every year there is a ton of hype surrounding the trade deadline, but the big misconception is that teams can no longer make trades after 4:00 PM on July 31st.  Teams can, in fact, make trades after the July 31st deadline.  It’s just not as simple. The big advantage to making deals prior to the July 31st deadline is that there are no restrictions on deals that can be made. ...
