Having exhausted most of his options in an effort to spark the sagging Angels, Manager Mike Scioscia tried the Budde system Wednesday, pairing ace Jered Weaver with seldom-used reserve catcher Ryan Budde. That brought out the best in Weaver, who racked up a career-high 12 strikeouts and allowed one earned run and six hits in seven innings. As for the right-hander's battery mate … well, Budde can only hope that Weaver doesn't defriend him. Budde allowed two passed balls that helped the Tampa Bay Rays score two of their three unearned runs in a 4-3 victory at Angel Stadium, dropping the Angels to 15-21, their worst 36-game start since they went 14-22 in 1990.

With major league rosters expanding to 40 players for the final month of the season, the Angels on Monday recalled right-handers Darren O'Day and Dustin Moseley and catcher Ryan Budde from their triple-A affiliate in Salt Lake City. All three players had time with the team earlier this season and are expected to be in uniform tonight when the Angels begin a six-game trip in Detroit. O'Day, who made the opening-day roster, pitched in 27 games in relief for the Angels, going 0-1 with a 4.34 earned-run average in 37 1/3 innings.

The Angels should clinch the American League West any day now, perhaps with Brian Fuentes on the mound -- and then at the bottom of a dog pile -- for the first time in his major league career. "That's always a fascination for a lot of pitchers," Fuentes said. "To have the opportunity to do that would be great." He vividly recalled the last out of last year's World Series, with Brad Lidge of the Philadelphia Phillies on the mound. "He makes the pitch, falls to his knees, points to the sky," Fuentes said, "and the dog pile proceeds."

BALTIMORE -- If the Angels make a move before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline, it appears more and more likely it will be for a pitcher to bolster their bullpen or add rotation depth, not a hitter. While there are few quality bats available, there is a bustling market for relievers that is believed to include top-tier left-handers Brian Fuentes (Colorado), George Sherrill (Baltimore) and Will Ohman (Atlanta) and right-hander Huston Street (Oakland). Among the second-tier -- and less costly -- relievers available are left-handers Ron Mahay (Kansas City)

OAKLAND -- The Angels and Oakland Athletics have staged some wild finishes over the years, such as the 2005 game in which closer Francisco Rodriguez missed a throw back from the catcher, allowing the A's to score the winning run, and the June 8 game this year, when Oakland's Mark Ellis hit a 12th-inning walk-off grand slam. But the American League West rivals would be hard-pressed to pack any more drama into one inning than they did Sunday, when the Angels rallied for two runs against closer Huston Street in the top of the ninth and Rodriguez escaped a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the bottom of the ninth.

The Angels' pitching rotation, battered though it may be, is complete. Manager Mike Scioscia announced before Saturday's 11-3 victory over the San Diego Padres at Angel Stadium that right-hander Dustin Moseley, beginning his second full season in the majors, will be the fifth starter, joining Jered Weaver, Jon Garland, Joe Saunders and Ervin Santana. "I'm excited," said 26-year Moseley. "Hopefully I can step in and fill the void." It's quite a void.

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- While a team of Angels reserves was busy beating the Texas Rangers, 3-2, in a Cactus League game in Surprise Stadium on Friday, probable opening-day starter John Lackey was back in Tempe nursing a sore elbow. The right-hander, who was 19-9 with an American League-leading 3.01 earned-run average in 2007, felt fine before camp began but started to feel tightness in the elbow a week ago. He is not expected to pitch in an exhibition until Wednesday or Thursday.

A 6-3 trip through New York, Minnesota and Seattle came at a price: The Angels lost utility infielders Maicer Izturis and Lou Merloni to injuries, and reserve catcher Josh Paul could join them on the disabled list today or Friday. As he slid into second base while breaking up a potential double play in the sixth inning of the Angels' 5-2 win over the Mariners on Wednesday, Paul was struck on the base of the right thumb by shortstop Wilson Valdez's throw.

SEATTLE -- The Angels are among the front-runners to play the Boston Red Sox in a possible season-opening series in Japan at the Tokyo Dome next year, a Major League Baseball official said Wednesday. Oakland and Seattle are the other teams being considered, though the Mariners are seen as a remote possibility because the presence of outfielder Ichiro Suzuki might detract from the buzz surrounding Boston pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka's return to Japan.

When starting catcher Mike Napoli went down Friday because of a strained hamstring, only a week after the Angels had traded veteran catcher Jose Molina to the New York Yankees, the conventional wisdom was there could be big problems brewing. Enter 24-year-old backup Jeff Mathis, in his second major league season who was batting .095 and will be Napoli's replacement for the next two weeks while Napoli is on the disabled list.
