Tuesday through Thursday: at San Diego Padres Friday through Sunday: at San Francisco Giants The Padres have looked like a different team since the All-Star break. The offensively impotent club has been scoring runs at an unusual rate and averaged 5.4 per game in their first seven games after the midseason intermission. Of those seven games, they won five. But the Padres were 1-4 against the Dodgers in the first half and were swept by them in a three-game series in San Diego from May 14-16.

"This is a pivotal time for us." So said Manager Joe Torre on Monday as the Dodgers opened a critical four-game series against the first-place San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium. With the Dodgers dropping fast in the National League West, Torre agreed "there's a sense of urgency" for the club to start winning again. But he said that while his players were frustrated with their recent record, their effort remained intact. "We're not very good right now," Torre said.

Scott Kazmir was barely audible when speaking to reporters after his last outing before Saturday, so embarrassed was he by giving up a franchise-worst 13 runs. Nearly a month later, the Angels pitcher didn't need to utter one word to convey what his pitching said for him. He's back. And he might be better than ever as an Angel. In his first start since spending nearly a month on the disabled list because of shoulder fatigue, Kazmir pitched five superb innings at Comerica Park during the Angels' 10-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers.

Angels: Week Ahead Monday through Wednesday: Kansas City Royals Friday through Sunday: Toronto Blue Jays Time is rapidly running out on the Angels' playoff hopes. But given recent history, it's going to be tough to make up ground any time soon. Although the Angels are six games over .500 in the AL West, they have a losing record against the rest of the league — bad news, given the fact they play only six games in their division over the next month. And beginning with the Blues Jays' series this week, they play 12 consecutive games against clubs with winning records.

Mannywood may have left Dodger Stadium, but its featured attraction could be back in left field as soon as Saturday. Manager Joe Torre said Friday it was possible Manny Ramirez would return to the Dodgers after only three minor league rehabilitation games with Class-A Inland Empire, considerably faster than initially expected. Ramirez played in the outfield Friday with the 66ers. He was initially expected to spend about a week with Inland Empire, which opens a three-game series Saturday in Bakersfield.

The Texas Rangers continue to hold their ground. The Angels just confound. One game after amassing 12 runs and 17 hits against one of baseball's best teams (Tampa Bay), the Angels were handcuffed by one of its worst teams in a 3-1 loss to Baltimore on Friday night. Orioles right-hander Brad Bergesen , 23, gave up one run and four hits in eight innings to improve to 6-9 and trump Angels right-hander Trevor Bell's solid seven-inning, two-run, six-hit start. The Angels scored their only run on a first-inning balk, they went hitless in six at-bats with runners in scoring position and fell 10½ games behind the Rangers in the American League West, their largest division deficit since July 28, 2003.
