Mike Trout nearly hits for cycle in lopsided Angels loss

There was one bright spot for the Angels on Sunday, and it was not the spherical ball of hot plasma that caused problems for their outfielders, who lost two balls in the sun in the team's 9-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians.

Blue Jays 9, Tigers 2: Everything was the same

Blue Jays 9, Tigers 2: Everything was the same

The Tigers and Blue Jays played a game on Sunday that bore a striking resemblance to the game they played Saturday, which is not a good thing. Day two of my quiet vigil beside the dying corpse of the Tigers season went much like the first game. With a dizzying array of possibilities before me on a Sunday afternoon, I again watched the Tigers play the Blue Jays. The Blue Jays again shelled Tigers pitchers. The Tigers again failed to muster much offense. The Tigers again made mental mistakes. JD Martinez moved up in the order, but everything else was eerily similar. Fangraphs could have...

Indians grand again in 9-2 win against Los Angeles Angels to finish three-game sweep

The Indians hit another grand slam to break a game open and Josh Tomlin turned in a terrific outing to take down the Los Angeles Angels 9-2 and finish a three-game sweep. The Indians (63-66) entered the fifth inning holding a modest 2-0 lead against Angels starter Jered Weaver (6-10). Michael Brantley singled and Carlos Santana followed with a double that fell after Angels (65-65) right fielder Kole Calhoun lost it in the sun, the second time an Angels outfielder lost a fly ball off Santana’s bat and let it drop. Lonnie Chisenhall, in a similar situation as Saturday night, was...
