Monday through Wednesday: at Seattle Friday through Sunday: at Oakland When the calendar flips from August to September, the Angels are usually beginning to think about their postseason rotation. Not this year. But that doesn't mean they don't have anything to play for in the final month of the season. The Angels need a strong September to avoid their first losing season since 2003. And more than a few players need strong finishes if they hope to be back next season — only nine Angels are signed for 2011.

Show business is ruled by the "elevator pitch" - the need for any project to lend itself to a short, immediately comprehensible summation. Part of the glory of "Angels in America" is that it's impossible to give one.

KEY MOMENT: The Angels put the first two runners on base in the first inning when Kole Calhoun doubled to right field and Mike Trout walked. But Albert Pujols grounded into a double play and David Freese lined out to center field, killing the rally and setting the tone for a frustrating evening. The Angels scored twice in the ninth on Trout's run-scoring triple and Freese's sacrifice fly. AT THE PLATE: Justin Smoak capped a superb series with a ninth-inning home run, giving the Seattle first baseman six hits, including two home runs, and seven runs batted in. Corey Hart also singled and homered, and Brad Miller, Robinson Cano and Stefen Romero each had two hits and an RBI for the Mariners.

PEORIA, Ariz. -- The first at-bat went well for the Angels. Robinson Cano, the Seattle Mariners' $240-million man, could haunt the Angels this season. On Saturday, facing the Angels for the first time in a Seattle uniform, Cano struck out against C.J. Wilson. The next two at-bats did not go as well for the Angels, and neither did the game. Cano singled in two other at-bats, driving in one run and scoring another, in the Mariners' 5-3 victory over the Angels. The game was called in the bottom of the seventh inning because of rain -- lots of it. In a game in which the Angels' lineup included one regular -- outfielder Kole Calhoun -- the Angels got two of their seven hits from utility infielder Grant Green.
