It’s only a four-team division and the Rangers still have a comfortable lead, but the Angels are suddenly in second place in the American League West.
Albert Pujols hit his fourth home run in five games and Ernesto Frieri converted his second save in as many chances as the Halos rolled to a 5-3 victory over the Mariners on Saturday evening in Seattle.
Pujols is working on a six-game hitting streak and has raised his batting average from .211 (on May 21) to .232 as of May 26. Frieri, meanwhile, boasts a dominant 22/7 K/BB ratio and 0.00 ERA in 10 innings since being acquired from the Padres.
Things are finally going right for the Angels, who have rattled off five straight wins.
