It took a while, but the Los Angeles Angels are back at .500. Anthony Rendon homered and drove in four runs, and the Angels rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-7 on Saturday. The win moved Los Angeles to .500 (32-32) for the first time since May 2.
Reliever Hunter Strickland is switching teams again as the Milwaukee Brewers attempt to see if he can regain his early-season form. The Brewers announced Saturday they have acquired Strickland from the Los Angeles Angels for cash. The Angels purchased Strickland from the Tampa Bay Rays on May 15 before designating him for assignment Monday.
Patrick Sandoval is turning into a pretty good pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels. Max Stassi hit a two-run homer in the first, Sandoval delivered the winning lineup card for a sixth straight game and the Los Angeles Angels rolled to a 10-3 victory over the plunging Arizona Diamondbacks. The left-handed Sandoval also delivered on the mound on Sunday, multi-tasking by pitching four-hit ball over six innings.
