Boxscore Breakdown #136: OakLOLand – Angels 8, Athletics 1

Well, that couldn’t have gone better. Not only did the Angels beat the pants off the A’s in the finale, but they sent them into full-on self-destruct mode afterwards.

Scott Kazmir continues to implode...

How the Angels won (08/31): Angels sweep the A's and extend their AL West lead to 5 games

How the Angels Won: It's a simple formula. The Angels pitched well enough to stay in games 1-4 and when their opponents made mistakes, they capitalized. The same formula proved effective on Sunday in an 8-1 win over the Oakland A's at Angel Stadium, effectively completing the four-game sweep over their AL West rivals.  "I think the whole series we played that way,"...
