The Angels will get their fill of Texas next season. The team’s 2013 schedule was officially released on Wednesday, and there are no trips combining the Rangers and new American League West member Houston.
So, the Angels will make six different stops in Texas to play the Rangers and Astros.
As was reported last week, the Angels will open the season on April 1 at Cincinnati, their three-game interleague series against the Reds followed by three games at Texas. The home opener is April 9 against Oakland.
There are no trips that would be considered extreme in terms of travel, but there are peculiar three-city trips, in late August (Seattle-Tampa Bay-Milwaukee), and mid-September (Toronto-Houston-Oakland). There is an off day between Seattle and Tampa Bay on Aug. 26.
The Angels will play 19 games (76 total) against AL West opponents Texas, Houston, Seattle and Oakland, 66 games against AL East and Central clubs and 20 interleague games, including only four against the Dodgers, at Los Angeles May 27-28 and in Anaheim on May 29-30.
