Angels 1 Indians 4

Losing a feeling that I couldn't give away

Counting' and breathing', disappearing' in the fade

They don't know, I never do you any good

Stoppin' and stayin', I would if I could

Ain't gonna worry

Just live till you die, I wanna drown

With nowhere to fall into the arms of someone

There's nothing to save, I know

You live till you die

Angels fall to Tribe, can't gain WC ground

For the second consecutive day, Francisco Lindor helped sink the Angels with a tiebreaking home run, launching a three-run, go-ahead shot to complete the Indians' three-game sweep with a 4-1 victory in Thursday afternoon's series finale at Angel Stadium.

Justin Upton’s homer in the can won’t yield $1 million donation from Sherwin-Williams due to technicality

If you are familiar with the Angels, then you know there is a giant paint can beyond the fence in left field at Angel Stadium sitting there as a target for home run balls. The oversized can is sponsored by paint retailer Sherwin-Williams, and the promotion calls for a $1 million donation to the Angels Baseball Foundation if a home run lands in the can. But it depends on what your definition of “landing” is. On Tuesday night, Justin Upton hit a home run ball over the left field fence, and...

Mike Trout’s Never Won a Playoff Game and It’s Weird

Mike Trout can do everything. Almost. (Photo: Keith Allison) In one form or another, the majority of posts at this site are based on some type of leaderboard. Highest average velocity among qualified pitchers, lowest ground-ball rate among qualified batters: these are the sort of distinctions that attract the attention both of writers and readers — and even illustrate the game’s trends towards one pole or another. Generally speaking, when Mike Trout appears on a leaderboard at...

Thor'sLinks: Midnight, pumpkins, and glass slippers

The second hand is approaching the strike of midnight, when the miracle turns back into a pumpkin. The Halos showed a bit of life last second, but time is still running out.

The Angels put up a fight last night, but the bullpen is turning back into a pumpkin and the glass slipper of clutchiness has been left on the castle steps. The Angels lost again, 6 to 5. It didn't hurt as bad as it could have. If you look at the AL WC standings, the AL Division leaders are all hot as pistols, as are...

Scioscia isn't worried about Petit's rare hiccup

Yusmeiro Petit has been arguably the Angels' most reliable reliever all season, but the veteran right-hander suffered a rare misstep on Wednesday night, surrendering a tiebreaking home run to Francisco Lindor that helped propel the Indians to a 6-5 win at Angel Stadium.

Wild Card-seeking Angels look to solve Indians

The Indians have a 1 1/2-game lead on the Astros for the AL's top seed and are within one game of the Dodgers for the best record in the Major Leagues -- a gap they'll try to close on Thursday at Angel Stadium, with Halos righty Parker Bridwell taking on Danny Salazar. The Angels remain 1 1/2 games behind the Twins for the second AL Wild Card spot.

Man, how come the Indians can’t be cool & let the Angels win a game & gain Wild Card ground?

Just like last night, the Angels would battle back against Cleveland all game long, but the Indians just wouldn’t die. Halos lose 6-5.

Angels 5 Indians 6

Alright, this is getting to be really frustrating. The Angels are finding out that the Cleveland Indians are for real, and they’re finding out in the worst way possible: By getting beat in hard-fought games, all while the Twins lose their game, thus blowing an opportunity to gain Wild Card ground. That’s two nights in a row that the...

Halos, Tribe thinking of families in Puerto Rico

Martin Maldonado sat in front of his locker in the Angels' clubhouse on Wednesday afternoon and scrolled through his social-media feeds, his attention fixated on videos and photos of the destruction wrought by Hurricane Maria in his native Puerto Rico.

Justin Upton didn’t hit a HR into the Sherwin Williams paint can: An explainer

Some fans (and a TON of writers) are wondering why Sherwin Williams isn’t donating $1 million to charity after Justin Upton’s HR last night, so I figured I’d do a public service and clear up this situation.

Last night, Justin Upton, who has been mashing baseballs with aplomb in the past week, continued his hot streak by hitting a home run into left-center during the ninth inning. It brought the Angels within three runs of the Indians, and it was hit really well, but outside of those...

Mid-playoff race, the Angels seem to be screwing over their pitchers to save a few bucks

On Sept. 15, the Los Angeles Angels, short-handed in the rotation due to an Andrew Heaney injury, tabbed Bud Norris to start a crucial game against the Rangers. This was odd for the simple reason that Norris had made 56 appearances on the season, all of them out of the bullpen. The last time Norris had gotten more than four outs in appearance had come on April 11. The Angels, meanwhile, had other options: They could have gone with Jesse Chavez, who started for more than half the season...

The Angels Anonymous Rotation

Anonymous may be a stretch, but I’m a sucker for alliteration. Chances are you know a couple of the names in the current Angels starting rotation, but their stat lines wouldn’t usually be recognizable on a team that finds themselves in a playoff hunt more than halfway through September. The Los Angeles Angels find themselves just 1.5 games out of the second wild card spot with under two weeks left in the season. It is almost inexplicable how the Angels have 76 wins and an actual chance...

HumpLinks: Halos Duck a win on Ducks Night

Deflated offense abandons Skaggs, Bullpen abandons their reputation, and team abandons chance to gain ground in WC race.

Mike Clevinger was a beast last night, allowing LAA batters only 3 hits and 2 walks over 6 innings while striking out 6. Only 1 run was scored (barely) against him. BUT THAT'S OK! Because Mike Scioscia could counter with Vinnie Pestano!! Um...no...no he could not. Clevinger was once OUR guy. But in 2014 Jerry Dipoto sent Clevinger away to the Indians in exchange for a...
