Chris Young and Robinson Cano arrived in Seattle with fanfare at opposite ends of the spectrum. Seattle couldn't celebrate the arrival of Cano enough. Young was a last-second addition plucked at the end of spring training.
During their surge to get back near the top of the AL West, hitting has not been the problem for the Los Angeles Angels.
Jason Vargas had quite a homecoming at Angel Stadium on Sunday, taking a two-hit shutout into the seventh inning.
The Houston Astros saw a completely different Jered Weaver than the one they faced 6½ weeks ago at Minute Maid Park, when they hit four home runs off him.
On most nights, Collin McHugh would have put himself in the win column with this kind of performance. On Wednesday, he had the misfortune of going up against Jered Weaver.
Dallas Keuchel couldn't complain after he got two chances to record the final out for what would have been his second consecutive shutout.
Just five batters into his start, Garrett Richards had given up three runs on three hits, two walks, a wild pitch and a comical pickoff throw that ended up somewhere down the left-field line.
Albert Pujols hit a pair of solo homers against David Price, and Matt Shoemaker took a shutout into the seventh inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels over the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 Sunday.
The Tampa Ray Rays have been the victim of both of C.J. Wilson's major league shutouts - and both of Grant Green's big league home runs.
Albert Pujols added David Price's name to a growing list of pitchers he has homered off during 13 power-packed years in the majors.
Even when he hit his spot, David Price couldn't keep Albert Pujols in the ballpark.
Everything went right for the Tampa Bay Rays after a mind-numbing loss the night before. Chris Archer escaped a bases-loaded jam with Albert Pujols at the plate, Grant Balfour was able to redeem himself, and Yunel Escobar continued his success against Jered Weaver.
Garrett Richards helped Mike Trout have a perfect homecoming trip.
For the second straight year, the Los Angeles Angels' management went out of its way to honor a retiring member of the New York Yankees' "Core Four." Last season it was Mariano Rivera, who retired as the all-time saves leader and received a painting of himself.
A few minutes after Mike Trout and Albert Pujols combined on the Los Angeles Angels' tying eighth-inning rally, one bad fastball by Ernesto Frieri undid his teammates' work yet again.
"For me, if I ever have a great start, that is awesome, and that is something that can take the pressure off a little bit," said Pujols. "But, I still have a lot of at-bats left. There is a little frustration at times because I am getting some pitches I know I can do some damage with. At the same time, this is just part of the game, and you can't let it get to you."
"I talked to Tony last night for 25 minutes," Pujols said before his Los Angeles Angels played the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night. "He kept mentioning ... 2001, Day 1, when I was making the ballclub and all that."
