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 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.

Is Arte Moreno bluffing, or would he really move the Angels out of Anaheim? That has emerged as a pivotal question as the team and city try to negotiate a deal that would keep the Angels where they are. Moreno, the Angels' owner, met last month with officials in Tustin about a possible new ballpark there, and said talks with Anaheim officials were “at a stalemate.” Dan Barrett, a sports industry consultant advising the city,...

The Angels have hired Bill Richardson, who spent the last five seasons in the Texas Rangers organization, to manage their short-season Class-A team at Orem, Utah, General Manager Jerry Dipoto said Friday. Richardson, 52, will replace Tom Kotchman, who resigned in October after 29 years in the Angels organization, 23 of them managing short-season Class-A clubs in Idaho and Utah. Dipoto had asked Kotchman, the father of big league first baseman Casey Kotchman, to give up his on-field duties at Orem to focus on scouting.

The home-run count might be up at Angel Stadium this year, but so might the calorie count. The Angels unveiled an assortment of new food items on Monday, including a deep-fried hot dog, a bacon-wrapped hot dog and a hot dog topped with barbecued beef. The "Cali Dog" is a hot dog wrapped in a tortilla, deep fried and served with a choice of toppings -- either chili and cheese, or pico de gallo, shredded lettuce, avocado and sour cream. For dessert, the Angels will offer "Arctic Nachos" -- that is, cinnamon-sugar nachos topped with vanilla ice cream, then doused in caramel and chocolate sauce.

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.
