The Angels have plenty of work to do if they want to make the postseason, but they got off to a good start with a win on Friday. Both Mark Trumbo and Mike Trout hit home runs as the Angels scored 6 runs and all. Today they will send Ervin Santana to the mound who has struggled so far this season. He’s pitching to a 5.60 ERA in 109 innings of work.
