Los Angeles Angels and Texas Rangers push for postseason

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Jered WeaverThe Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have been a playoff contender for years, and after missing the postseason last year, they’re back in the mix in 2011, trailing the Texas Rangers by four games in the AL West with 41 games left on the schedule, 10 of which are against those same boys from Arlington. They’ll play a four-game series this week and then a three-gamer on the last weekend of the month. Then, and we can only hope the division is still to be decided, the two teams will close out the season with three more games against each other.

The most bizarre April game in MLB history

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Blue Jays @ Angels (Christine Cotter)Peter Bourjos scored from second on a Maicer Izturis single to right field to end what can only be described as one of the wildest April games in MLB history. The Anaheim Angels took the 6-5, 14-inning victory from the Toronto Blue Jays in a game that took five hours and three minutes to play. The lead traded hands five times before settling at 5-5 after four innings. However, nobody could fully crack the bullpens. The game featured the use of 14 total relievers (including Angels starter Dan Haren), four double plays, three outfield assists, a combined 4-for37 with runners in scoring position and 26 runners left on base.

Re-defining “DH” with Dan Haren

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Dan HarenWho needs a designated hitter? Not the Arizona Diamondbacks; or at least not when they have Dan Haren on the mound. Haren made hitting look easy on Friday night when he single-handedly took on the Toronto Blue Jays. Haren gave up four solo home runs in an 8-6 victory, but contributed to his own cause on the offensive side by cracking a pair of doubles – one after faking a bunt – and driving in three runs.
