Heartbreak: Rangers 11, Angels 10 (10 Innings)
If the Angels lose the division by one game, this is the one they'll rue. Losing leads of six runs and then three runs, the latter in extras? It reminds me that Scioscia was smarter when he had Joe Maddon as his bench coach, or maybe it's easy to be smart when you have a bullpen full of aces. Frieri showed why the Padres were willing to trade him in the first place, and now that Scott Downs has hit the 15-day DL with a strained shoulder, the Angels' bullpen looks thinner and thinner.
Sure, tell me that the Angels are now guaranteed a split in Texas, and that's not a bad thing. But with victory within reach? Not so good.
