Angels Tonight

July 16, 2009|Mike DiGiovanna

AT OAKLAND

When: 7.

Where: McAfee Coliseum.

On the air: TV: Fox Sports West. Radio: 830, 980, 1330.

Pitchers: Ervin Santana vs. Dallas Braden. Friday, 7 p.m. -- Joe Saunders (8-5, 4.65) vs. Trevor Cahill (5-8, 4.67); Saturday, 6 p.m. -- Jered Weaver (10-3, 3.22) vs. Vin Mazzaro (2-5, 3.59); Sunday, 1 p.m. -- John Lackey (4-4, 4.93) vs. Brett Anderson (5-7, 4.64).

Update: Santana, who has been on the disabled list twice this season, says he is sound and that he has cleared the mental hurdle of cutting loose on his fastball after a significant elbow injury. In his first two starts since returning from his second DL stint, Santana has given up nine earned runs and 15 hits in nine innings of losses to Baltimore and Texas, and his fastball seemed to lack the late life that made him difficult to hit last year. Braden has held left-handers to a .176 average, but right-handers are hitting .281.
