8/26/2015 | Thinking on fly helped Iannetta end no-hitter
With one out in the top of the sixth inning of the Angels' 5-0 loss to the Tigers on Wednesday night, Chris Iannetta reached full desperation mode. The Angels' catcher had just popped up another hittable fastball, dropping his batting average to .184 and making an out for the 48th time in his last 54 at-bats. Iannetta walked back into the dugout and told Paul Sorrento, one of the team's assistant hitting coaches, "All right, man, I've got nothing."

8/25/2015 | Emotional win may be Angels' turning point
For those who spent the last month asking the question: "The Angels have to be better than this, don't they?" In Tuesday night's 8-7 win over the Tigers, yes, they were better.

An emotional outburst from starting pitcher Jered Weaver seemed to help more than it hurt.
