Angels in Sole Possession of First Place!

Final Score in Arlington: Padres 7, Rangers 3

The Angels at 40-32 are a half game ahead of the Texas for SOLE POSSESSION of first place in the American League West.

Alone in FIRST PLACE After these Tragic Twelve Facts:

  1. Promising rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart dies in a tragic accident after 3rd game of season
  2. Ervin Santana has a sprained TJ Ligament, misses two months, pitches in six games and is back on the DL
  3. John Lackey misses two months with a forearm strain, and is barely getting into form at the mid-season mark
  4. Kelvim Escobar makes it back into 1 game after shoulder surgery, goes back on the DL
  5. Twelve pitchers have started for the Angels this season
  6. DH Vladimir Guerrero misses over 30 games with a strained pectoral muscle, returns just in time to sit for NL parks
  7. Howie Kendrick, the opening day 2Bman is sent down to the minors after batting almost 100 points lower than his career average in over 50 games.
  8. Longtime reliable setup reliever Scot Shields is out for season with knee surgery
  9. Fan Dies on opening night on stadium steps after altercation
  10. Off-duty policeman shoots, wounds two in parking lot melee in late June
  11. Of 22 Angels pitchers appearing in an Angels uniform this season, only 7 have ERAs under 4.00: Adenhart (RIP), Escobar (DL), Sean O'Sullivan, Darren Oliver, Joe Saunders and Jered Weaver started the day there and Brian Fuentes went below 4 in his one inning of work Saturday.
  12. We started the season 6 - 11
