Angels decline 2018 options on Huston Street, Ricky Nolasco
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have declined their contract options for next season on former closer Huston Street and right-hander Ricky Nolasco.
The Angels also announced Friday that outfielders Eric Young Jr. and Shane Robinson and reliever Deolis Guerra have elected to become free agents.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Late-inning dramatics are becoming commonplace these days for the Oakland Athletics.

Trout homers on Griffey’s day, but Angels lose 8-6
SEATTLE (AP) — Mike Trout did his part to upstage Seattle's celebration for Ken Griffey Jr.
The Los Angeles Angels bullpen failed to finish what Trout started.
Trout hit a three-run home run in the first inning and added an RBI triple in the third, but the Mariners rallied for four runs in the seventh inning and beat the Angels 8-6 on Saturday night.
Shawn O'Malley, once a property of the Angels, delivered the decisive blow with a three-run homer off Deolis...
SEATTLE (AP) — A night that began with cheers for new Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. echoing through Safeco Field ended with chants for Shawn O'Malley, a kid that grew up a few hours southeast of Seattle idolizing the Hall of Famer.
A little surreal for O'Malley? Yep. Deserved? Absolutely.
"The fact it ended like that, it just seemed like a Griffey type of night," O'Malley said. "A home run to go up, late in the innings, it was just fitting."
