Series Preview: @ Oakland Athletics

New, 17 comments

The top two teams in the American League go face-to-face this weekend in the O.co Coliseum.

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Calling this the most important series of the season thus far might be an understatement. The Angels sit at 30-23, just 1.5 games behind the Athletics who have a 32-22 record. Each game is setup for a pitching duel, especially if Tyler Skaggs rebounds from his last outing. Mike Trout has been slowly warming up, batting .440 in the seven days. While Josh Hamilton may not be in the lineup, the Halos have certainly had everyone putting in their share of work.
