AL West Penant Race Tough for Angels After Blue Jays Win Series

August 14, 2011

Friday begins a weekend series visiting the Blue Jays (59-58) in Toronto after dropping the series to the Yankees two games to one. The Angels come into the game with a 64-54 record, and an even 5 and 5 over the past 10 games.  They lost 2 of 3 to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre after a Jordan Walden blown save in the bottom of the 9th, his 8th of the year.

Welcome Back: Vernon Wells and Scott Downs visit the Blue Jays in the Rogers Center for the first time in their Angel uniforms. Ervin Santana, Jered Weaver, and Dan Haren will all pitch during this weekend series.  Result: Wells was cold and Aybar and Kendrick couldn't support the lineup.  Weaver had his worst outing of the year Saturday.

Hunting Pitchers: Torii Hunter is the hottest halo bat in the lineup hitting .500 over the past 9 games.  His leadership will be important this weekend to continue the winning ways of the Angels from July into the middle of August.

League Leader: Jose Bautista has been among the best in baseball this year. He currently leads all MLB players with 33 home runs,  walks with 91, on base percentage at .446, and slugging at .632.

Taking the Mound: Ervin Santana has been brilliant in his last three starts, and he’ll face Brandon Morrow of the Blue Jays Friday.

Blogwatch Stat: Watch those bases!  This weekend gave the Angels the opportunities to break 100 stolen bases on the year, and they did!

Listen to this song now for free! Sun Fields is one of the more tracks for the album for a relaxing morning or evening and I have found this song to be great background for home chores, reading, or cleaning up. Hard rock? No, but there are some good alternative tunes on the album to check out. Albums
