The Angels broke out of a four-game offensive slump today with a 7-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals in Kauffman Stadium, increasing their American League West lead over Texas to 5 1/2 games. Erick Aybar tied a club record with two triples, and Bobby Abreu had a big two-run double to back the pitching of Joe Saunders, who allowed two runs and 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings to win his third straight game since coming off the disabled list Aug. 26. The Angels scored all of five runs in their previous four games, though two came against Cy Young Award contenders, Kansas City's Zack Greinke and Seattle's Felix Hernandez.

Monday through Thursday: at Oakland Athletics Friday through Sunday: at Dodgers The Moneyball era is dead, and the A's are imitating the San Diego Padres, trying to mount an unlikely playoff run with virtually no offense and a deep but unheralded pitching staff. The depth is evaporating, and even the healthy arms are struggling to succeed. Dallas Braden has not won in five starts since his perfect game, though the A's have scored a total of eight runs in those five games.

The Angels have launched their own ticket resale program, hoping to help season-seat holders save a few bucks while reducing the number of cut-rate tickets available on third-party websites. The Angels and New York Yankees are the only two of the 30 teams to opt out of an agreement between Major League Baseball and Stub Hub. The Angels had grown frustrated as fans realized they often could buy a cheaper ticket from Stub Hub than from the team itself. "What we're trying to accomplish is to build pricing integrity back into the secondary marketplace," said Robert Alvarado, the Angels' vice president of marketing and ticket sales.
