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.

Josh Hamilton is not the only superstar in the Angels' clubhouse who had a bitter breakup with the fans of his old team. Albert Pujols is no longer universally beloved in St. Louis. Hamilton had a harsh homecoming reception in Texas over the weekend. Pujols said he does not worry about what kind of reaction would await him when he returns to St. Louis. "I'm way past that," Pujols told The Times. "When the time comes, I'll deal with it. " The Angels do play the Cardinals this season, but the games are in Anaheim.

CINCINNATI - Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton, who had expressed curiosity about how he would be greeted in Cincinnati, received a warm ovation from fans here before the season opener between the Angels and Reds. Angels first baseman Albert Pujols, who starred for the rival St. Louis Cardinals, was booed loudly. Hamilton made his major league debut for the Reds on April 2, 2007, as a pinch-hitter. The Reds had acquired him four months earlier, in the Rule 5 draft. Hamilton had grown up in North Carolina and had spent the previous seven years of his career in the Tampa Bay organization.
