Angels update

Fresh off a four-game split with Boston, the Angels have opened a 2 1/2 -game lead in the American League West. They've been in first place for 133 of 140 days. Chone Figgins ranks second in the AL with a career-high 41 steals, and the Angels are first in the league, second in the majors, with 122. Colon is the only pitcher in the majors with 14 or more wins in each of the past eight seasons. The Angels' starters rank first in the AL in team ERA. Center fielder Steve Finley, signed over the winter to help fill the offensive void created by the departures of Troy Glaus and Jose Guillen, is batting .217, a drop of 54 points from last season. He's 8-for-56 this month. Sam Perlozzo's first game, and victory, as Orioles interim manager came against the Angels on Aug. 4.
