Angels update

After winning last night's series finale against the Seattle Mariners, the Angels had won 11 of 14 games to take a 5 1/2 -game lead in the American League West. That stretch included a three-game sweep of the New York Yankees last weekend. The Angels struggled on offense until recently, but their pitching has been a consistent asset. The Angels' 3.71 staff ERA was the third lowest in the American League as of yesterday. Escobar, often a forgotten man on the talented staff, has pitched like its ace, winning five of his past six games and going at least seven innings in each victory. The Orioles were spared a meeting with Bartolo Colon, who was expected to pitch Saturday but now could be headed to the disabled list with triceps tendinitis. But they do get Ervin Santana, who is 4-1 with a 2.12 ERA at home this season and 0-5 with a 9.30 ERA on the road. The Orioles are just 4-11 at Angel Stadium the past three seasons.
