LA Angels: 3-point checklist for September baseball
By Evan Desai
The LA Angels need to win or tie every series in the ten game home stand
The LA Angels have all road games after this upcoming Rangers series, other than a ten game home stand from September 17th to September 26th.
All of these games are going to be against good teams, in all three of the other AL West rivals.
The first series is going to be a three-game series against the A’s, the second is going to be a four-game series against the Astros, and the last is going to be a three-game series against the Mariners.
That’s a brutal stretch right there, but if the Angels want to gain respect from their rivals, they need to win or tie each series.
Also, they could possibly crawl back into the playoff race if they can go 6-4 or better in this race, as they’d be beating up on some teams ahead of them. They also would then have an easier road trip than it was for the home stand, as they’ll be playing three games against the Rangers after that and their final three against the Mariners.
