TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Mike Trout wrapped up an eventful spring in Arizona on Friday with his third home run, and first since signing his record new deal.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — For the first time since 2000, a new manager will be in the home clubhouse at Tempe Diablo Stadium when the Los Angeles Angels report to spring training.
Mike Scioscia spent 19 years in charge of the Halos, and Brad Ausmus is aware of the enormity of the shoes he is about to fill.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani gave yet another glimpse of what he could do at the plate just hours after announcing he planned to undergo Tommy John surgery and return next season only as a hitter.
Ohtani's bat was broken by a Yovani Gallardo slider, but he was strong enough to punch it into center for a single that tied the score and ignite a four-run rally Tuesday to lead the Angels to a 4-1 comeback over the Texas Rangers.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Kole Calhoun and Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia were surprised to find out just how long the right fielder's hitless streak really was, considering how good a second half of the season he's had.
On Sunday, Calhoun broke out of his 0-for-25 slump in a big way.
Calhoun hit a tiebreaking home run and Justin Upton homered in his third straight game as the Angels avoided a four-game sweep with a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
PHOENIX (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have placed Justin Upton on the 10-day disabled list with a cut on his left index finger, but they expect Mike Trout will rejoin the team by the end of the week.
The Angels announced Upton's move Tuesday prior to a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, retroactive to Sunday. The Angels called up outfielder Jabari Blash from Triple-A Salt Lake to take Upton's place on the active roster.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Justin Upton caught one home run ball, just missed snatching another. And then he hit one of his own.
"Two for three on home run balls? I'll take that," Upton said after his two-run shot capped a four-run, 10th-inning rally that carried the Los Angeles Angels past the San Diego Padres 6-3 on Monday night.
Upton robbed pinch-hitter Eric Hosmer in the eighth when he went above the left-field wall to turn a go-ahead, three-run homer into a tying sacrifice fly.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ramon Laureano grabbed the spotlight, and that was just fine with Edwin Jackson.
Laureano made an outstanding defensive play in the third inning, helping Jackson and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 7-0 on Saturday night.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Against one of the best bullpens in baseball, the Los Angeles Angels treated all of the late innings like they were the ninth and the tactic was rewarded when they rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics.
Kole Calhoun and Justin Upton hit two-run homers and Albert Pujols reached another milestone as the Angels were forced into comeback mode early on Friday night.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — After getting three big homers and nine innings of outstanding pitching to complete a series sweep, the Los Angeles Angels are headed into a day off with a rare feeling of contentment in their disappointing season.
The Detroit Tigers are just grateful to be going home after a horrific California road trip ended with nothing but losses.
Justin Upton and Albert Pujols hit back-to-back homers in the fifth inning, and the Angels swept the Tigers with a 6-0 victory Wednesday.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Dallas Keuchel didn't allow a debatable scoring decision to ruin his dominant night.
Keuchel took a no-hitter into the seventh and finished with 7 2/3 innings of two-hit ball in the Houston Astros' 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Justin Upton ended Dallas Keuchel's bid for a no-hitter in the seventh inning when shortstop Marwin Gonzalez couldn't snag his high line drive.
The Houston Astros left-hander hadn't allowed a hit with two outs in the seventh inning Friday night when Upton smoked a line drive. Gonzalez leaped and got a glove on the Los Angeles Angels slugger's drive, but it trickled into the outfield.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — On a night when Albert Pujols moved up the career home run ladder, rookie teammate David Fletcher grabbed onto the bottom rung.
Pujols hit two home runs to tie Ken Griffey Jr. for sixth place with 630, and Fletcher connected for his first in the majors as the Los Angeles Angels romped to an 11-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday.
Pujols rarely talks about personal achievements. But matching Griffey, a former Mariners star, had him feeling an extra sense of pride.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani's versatility was on display again Sunday.
The two-way star launched a pinch-hit home run in the seventh inning that sent Andrew Heaney and the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Bothered by a sore knee, Ohtani drove his first career pinch-hit homer a projected 443 feet to center field, breaking a 3-all tie. It also was the Angels' first pinch-hit home run of the season.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani's pinch-hit home run in the seventh inning sent Andrew Heaney and the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.
Albert Pujols also went deep for the Angels, tying the score at 3 in the sixth. Justin Upton had a two-run single.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Neither Jarrod Dyson nor Justin Upton could tell whether Upton's bases-loaded line drive to the deepest part of center field would have made it out of Angel Stadium.
Dyson made sure nobody will ever know with a leaping, lunging catch that might have saved a win for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels are missing some significant pieces of their team. The Minnesota Twins are down several important players, too.
With a couple of clutch hits and a strong night by the bullpen, the Angels taught a lesson in resiliency. The Twins are still searching for theirs.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Not even an early exit by Shohei Ohtani could stop the Los Angeles Angels from beating Kansas City again.
Justin Upton homered for the third time in four games and the Angels defeated the Royals 4-3 after Ohtani was removed following the fourth inning because of a blister on his pitching hand Wednesday night.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Give the Los Angeles Angels enough opportunities and they find ways to score runs.
It's a lesson they have taught the Kansas City Royals plenty of times this season.
Mike Trout had three hits, including a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning, and the Angels beat the Royals 9-6 on Monday night.
"I thought we did a good job in the batter's box all night, and you have to when you're down 5-2 and you come back," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — After Justin Anderson got two outs in the ninth inning, the Angels reliever got two strikes on three consecutive batters. All three drew full-count walks when Anderson couldn't get a call.
With the Angels' bullpen on the brink of collapse for the second straight day, Anderson dug in and made sure another Angels starter's strong effort wasn't wasted.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Rougned Odor keeps finding himself at the center of critical moments, and Los Angeles Angels fans keep finding him with their jeers.
It worked out a little better for the Texas Rangers' fiery second baseman Saturday night.
Odor beat a throw home by left fielder Justin Upton on Ronald Guzman's single in the 10th inning, lifting Texas over the Angels 3-2.
