Well, the Angels were in the mix then an extended losing streak and a hot patch by the Rangers and the Angels are now six games back. And that’s even after taking two straight. That four game series against the Rangers was the killer and while the Angels managed to win the finale, it didn’t make for the other three losses. There’s still some time, but it doesn’t look like baseball playoff tickets are in Angels’ fans futures.
Last night, the Angels took care of the Orioles 8-3. Torii Hunter had a big day at the plate with a pair of home runs and five RBIs. Peter Bourjos also had a nice game and he went three for five with a solo home run.
Dan Haren picked up the win. He gave up three runs on nine hits with eight strikeouts in seven frames. Scott Downs and Fernando Rodney pitched a shutout inning a piece to close out the game.
Joel Pineiro gets the start tonight and Tommy Hunter throws for the Orioles. The Rangers continue their series against the White Sox. Last night was tough because the White Sox led 3-0 but ended up losing 7-4.
