Tigers' Justin Verlander has no-hitter through 6 innings

DETROIT (AP) Justin Verlander has not allowed a hit for the Detroit Tigers through six innings against the Los Angeles Angels.

Monkeying around with the most important Angels road trip of the year

The Angels are a mess. They have been an embarrassment on the road since the All-Star break going 1-12. They then embarrassed themselves again in their last homestand, losing four in a row and setting franchise records for how badly they got their butt whipped by the Jays. Now they get the privilege of going back on the road for a nine-game roadie with their playoff chances hanging...

Series Takeaways: The Hall of Fame Weekend Massacre

If this weekend made one thing abundantly clear, it’s that no team in baseball was more in need of a day off than the Angels. The club went into the weekend having played 14 days in a row and in 23 of the last 24 overall. Every other AL team but the Twins had at least two days rest in that span, and Minnesota’s day off mercifully came midway through their stretch. The only contending...

Boxscore Breakdown #120: Repellent Shark – Angels 1, White Sox 0

Oh my Flying Spaghetti Monster, what a disastrous night for the Angels offense. A night after they scored five runs on five hits, the Angels didn’t go down in order until the seventh inning. Of the first 15 outs they made, 10(!) came with runners in scoring position, so they basically spent most of the first half of the game on the verge of scoring, only they didn’t. Jeff Samardzija...

Rookie Cowart on finally making Angels' debut: 'It's honestly still a dream'

The story of Kaleb Cowart is one of resilience. Drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in 2010, Cowart toiled in the minor leagues for years, unable to really put together the kind of stat line and progression that most expected from him as a first-round pick. On Tuesday, the Halos rewarded Cowart for his determination by promoting him to play third base and start in his very first MLB...

Searching for Kaleb Cowart

Ever since he was drafted, Kaleb Cowart has intrigued me as a prospect analyst.  He’s a unique player in that many of his perceived strengths are typically weaknesses in other players while his weaknesses are things that come to other prospects rather easily.  Case in point…. 1. Cowart is well-built, but his power is still predominantly gap power because of a line-drive type...
