Weekly Rundown 4- Angels Summary 5/16-5/29

Well due to an afternoon game I wasn't able to post a Weekly Rundown last week. I'll try to make up for it now.

Since the 16th of May the Angels have gone an unfortunate 6-8 between a 7 game home stand and 7 games spent on the road. Of those losses the Angels played the A's 6 times and only won twice. The Angels are currently a game behind the Texas Rangers for the division lead and sit at 28-27, constantly flirting with a .500 record.

 The offense has not been able to really get going for the past two weeks and as a result Angel aces Haren and Weaver continued to look for their first win in the month of May.

On the 28th Jered Weaver went 9 strong innings giving up no runs but received no run support at all for a game that eventually was settled in extra innings. In six May starts Weaver took 4 losses and 2 no decisions. Dan Haren finally received his first win since April 17th to finally hit the 5 win mark.

In injury news Angel starter Scott Kazmir made his first rehab start in AAA Salt Lake and was only able to last 1 2/3 innings. He continues to search for his best stuff and return to top of the rotation form. Outfielder Vernon Wells has increased his workout regimen to return to the Angels batting order and could be back in action in a week and a half. Second baseman Howie Kendrick hit the DL retroactive to May 20th due to tightness in his hamstring and has not played since May 19th.

I'll go more in depth with some of this news later this week when I post the Angels Monthly Summary.
