After a quick stop in Kansas City to play a make-up game against the Royals, the Angels now face the challenge of a nine-game road stretch. The first stop for the Halos is Boston where they will play a threegame series against the Red Sox. The Red Sox (52-27) are tied at the top of the American League East with the New York Yankees while the Angels (41-38) sit in a tie for third place in the AL West. The Angels have an opportunity on their hands to shine on the East Coast. If the Halos' bats catch fire in Boston then the ball club will have a chance to build a nice winning streak against a top team in the MLB.

Angels vs. Red Sox: The One to Watch
For this series 'The One to Watch' we'll focus on Angels infielder Luis Valbuena. In the series against the Blue Jays last week Valbuena's bat was on fire. The 32-year-old from Venezula hit three home runs in just four games. If the Angels want to get the series win, their bats have to be on-point. If Valbuena can continue to hit the ball out of the park like he did against Toronto then the Angels can give the Red Sox a run for their money this week.
