Even after a late flight home from Texas led into an early three-run deficit, the Los Angeles Angels’ incredible late-season offensive barrage still wouldn’t stop. David Freese hit a two-run homer and Mike Trout had an RBI triple during Los Angeles’ seven-run fifth inning, and the Angels beat the Houston Astros 11-3 Friday night for their ninth consecutive victory. Kole Calhoun had a tiebreaking, two-run single in the fifth for the major league-leading Angels (92-55), who began their final homestand by reducing their magic number to five for their first AL West title since 2009. It’s been fun coming to the yard every day.” Trout had an RBI double in the fourth and Howie Kendrick added a two-run double in the sixth for Los Angeles.

Struggling to keep pace in the NL wild-card race, the Atlanta Braves appear to be catching a break with their series against the lowly Texas Rangers. Giving the ball to Alex Wood would also seem to help their chances of picking up a win. Wood looks to continue his impressive stretch in Friday night’s opener against a Rangers team that’s won once in the last two weeks. Atlanta (75-71) is resigned to the fact it can’t catch NL East-leading Washington, trailing by 8 1/2 games with 16 to play, and has shifted its focus to the wild card.

Albert Pujols almost had consecutive triples after going more than four years without one. It didn’t keep the Angels from adding to their big lead in the AL West. Pujols tripled to open the scoring and finished a home run shy of the cycle, rookie Matt Shoemaker had another strong start, and the Angels beat the Texas Rangers 8-1 on Wednesday night. ”It would have been pretty cool,” Pujols said.

Kole Calhoun got the Los Angeles Angels started with a leadoff homer, and No. 9 batter Collin Cowgill had a big eighth inning. Manager Mike Scioscia’s team is rolling down the stretch, scoring plenty of runs and piling up wins. Cowgill reached on an infield single to start a seven-run eighth, scored on Mike Trout’s triple and capped the outburst with a bases-loaded triple as the Angels stretched their winning streak to six with a 9-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night. ”Obviously, it’s a potent offense when everybody’s contributing,” Cowgill said.
