Los Angeles is painted red and the Angels plan to keep it that way. After winning the first installment of the Freeway Series last weekend, taking two of three at the Big A, the Halos will head north to Dodger Stadium to round out the first half of the season. The Angels (48-46) followed up the Interleague Play with a big divisional series win, stealing two from the visiting Seattle Mariners to make up some room in the Wildcard hunt. While the Halos took care of business in Anaheim, the Dodgers did the same a bit further south. The Blue and White (51-42) took three out of four against the Padres in San Diego.
After struggling at home against the Dodgers (0-of-10), Kole Calhoun returned to his vintage form at the plate during the three-game stint with the Mariners. Calhoun collected four hits, including a home run, driving in three in the process. In nine career games in Dodger Stadium, the Red Rocket is batting .296 with a homer and four walks. Look for Calhoun to keep the momentum moving into the All-Star break with a big weekend to make up for his lackluster first installment.
