  1. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 17, 2013, 6:23 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Tampa Bay Rays

    Rays 6, Rangers 2: A homer and three RBI for Wil Myers as the Rays send the Rangers spiraling ever further into despair. Because the Indians lost too the Rangers didn’t fall out of the wild card slot, but they did fall out of the top spot, meaning that they’re now closer to falling out…

  2. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 12, 2013, 7:12 AM EDT

    Mike Napoli

    Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Mike Carp with a tenth inning grand slam. Good job extending your lead, Boston! Good job letting the Yankees pull to within one game of the wild card, Rays! Apropos of nothing, I’d give a lot to hear what Red Sox fans who love this beards thing had to say…

  3. C.J. Wilson is one big Angels signing that has gone well

    Aug 21, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    C.J, Wilson

    Handing out huge long-term contracts to Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton has worked out horribly for the Angels and only figures to get worse, but one of their big free agent commitments is going just fine. When the Angels inked C.J. Wilson to a five-year, $77.5 million deal it was met with a lot of…

  4. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 16, 2013, 6:46 AM EDT

    Houston Astros v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 5, Astros 0: Sonny Gray only has a couple of major league starts under his belt, but this one was a spiffy one: eight shutout innings, nine strikeouts. Of course a lot of guys have had spiffy starts against the Astros lately. Rule 5 pick Nate Freiman had himself a nice day too, going…

  5. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 1, 2013, 6:51 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 6, Padres 2: An improbable walkoff grand slam from Jeff Mathis caps an improbable winning month from the Miami Marlins. 15-10 in June for the worst team in baseball. Not bad. Oh, and Mathis’ homer was the 3,000th in team history. Pirates 2, Brewers 1: A 14th inning walkoff win for the hottest and…

  6. Two words for you: mini bar

    Jun 17, 2013, 5:42 PM EDT

    Mini Bar

    USA Today talked with Bronson Arroyo, David Freese, C.J. Wilson and David Wright about their travel preferences. Here’s the short version: The longer version: food is important. First thing they check when they check in to a hotel? Room service hours and if breakfast is still being served. And they all like that minibar: Arroyo, Freese and Wright unite over…

  7. Angels will skip Joe Blanton’s next turn in the rotation

    Jun 12, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Joe Blanton

    Joe Blanton is 1-10 with a 5.87 ERA and the Angels just announced that the veteran right-hander’s next turn in the rotation will be skipped. That means he won’t start Sunday against the Yankees as scheduled, with the Angels lining up C.J. Wilson, Tommy Hanson, and Jered Weaver for the three-game series instead. It’s tough…

  8. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 3, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

  9. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 23, 2013, 6:57 AM EDT

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…

    May 18, 2013, 8:58 AM EDT

    Chris Sale Getty

    After tossing a one-hit shutout against the Angels in his last start on Sunday, Chris Sale got the best of them again last night. Sale struck out a season-high 12 over 7 2/3 scoreless innings as the White Sox topped the Angels 3-0 at Angel Stadium. The 24-year-old southpaw gave up just three hits and…

  11. For first time ever, Jason Bay is a leadoff man

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    Facing a lefty in Anaheim’s C.J. Wilson on Friday, the Mariners have Jason Bay leading off for the first time in his career. With Franklin Gutierrez sidelined, Endy Chavez had been leading off for the Mariners of late, but he’s only an option there against righties. Bay, who is hitting .220 overall, is 4-for-14 with…

    Early in the offseason the Angels were shopping Ervin Santana (who they eventually traded) and Dan Haren (whose option they eventually declined) because they wanted to clear payroll space to re-sign Zack Greinke, making that the focus of their winter. Unfortunately for the Angels once Greinke actually hit the open market and the offers started…

    gold glove

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

Wilson did last…
