Maicer Izturis hit an RBI single in the top of the third inning to drive in Alberto Callaspo and take a 1-0 lead. The Angels managed to hold on for a few innings, but in the bottom of the sixth inning, Seth Smith hit a home run to straightaway center field to tie things up.

The two bullpens duked out out into extra innings. In the top of the 11th, the Angels got runners on the corners with two out and Callaspo managed to drive in Peter Bourjos and Howie Kendrick with a two-run double down the left-field line.

Angels Vs. Athletics Final Score: C.J. Wilson 1-Hits Oakland In 5-0 Win

Tuesday night was a rare evening where everything went right for the Los Angeles Angels. The Halos evened up their series against the Oakland Athletics and snapped their three-game losing streak with a 5-0 win behind a spectacular C.J. Wilson.

The game was decidedly lopsided as the Angels rapped out 10 hits in the game. They did the big damage in the top of the first inning, as Albert Pujols drove in a run with a sacrifice fly and Mark Trumbo and Howie Kendrick added RBI singles to put Los Angeles up 3-0.

Albert Pujols added his fourth home run of the season in the top of the third to make it 4-0 Angels and Erick Aybar took a bases-loaded hit by pitch to drive in the fifth run in the top of the seventh.

Wilson allowed just one hit and two walks in eight innings of work to pick up his fifth win of the year. Trumbo and Kendrys Morales had two hits each.

The Angels will try for the series win in the rubber game on Wednesday.

Angels Vs. Athletics Final Score: Halos Can't Muster Enough Offense In 2-1 Loss

The Los Angeles Angels found out earlier on Monday that they would be losing Vernon Wells for about two months. That was certainly a bad way to start the day, but things quickly went downhill from there with a 2-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics at the O.co Coliseum to stretch their losing streak to three games.

The A's opened the scoring in the bottom of the second inning, when they were able to score on a double-play grounder from Kurt Suzuki. They added their second run in the bottom of the third on an RBI single from Kila Ka'aihue.

Mike Trout cut the Oakland lead to 2-1 with an RBI double in the top of the fifth, but the Angels would go quietly the rest of the day, held down by the Oakland bullpen.

The Angels managed just five hits and one walk off of Oakland starter Tom Milone and were unable to reach base against either pitcher they faced from the A's bullpen. Halos starter Jerome Williams had a quality start of two runs over 6.1 innings of work. Williams allowed only five hits but also issued five walks to Oakland batters.

No Angels hitter reached base more than once and Trout's double was the only extra-base hit for Los Angeles.

Angels Call Up Kole Calhoun, Bobby Cassevah

The Los Angeles Angels have made a crucial move to ensure the

Bill Plunkett of OCRegister has more on why the Angels made these moves.

Calhoun tore up the Class-A California League last season (.324, 22 home runs and 99 RBI) then skipped Double-A entirely after an impressive spring training with the Angels during which he hit .354 with eight extra-base hits (seven doubles and a triple) in 23 preseason games.

An eighth-round pick out of Arizona State in 2010, Calhoun is not on the 40-man roster and the Angels will need to make a move to free up a spot for him.

After that performance in spring training, this is what Angels GM Jerry Dipoto had to say about Calhoun:

"Loved him. Very well-rounded."

With Ryan Langerhans and Vernon Wells headed to the DL, it was clear the Angels needed to get more players from their farm system, and they have a special one in Calhoun. Calhoun won the Fred Haney Award this spring, given annually to the top Angels rookie in spring training. He was in Class A last year but managed to skip Double A entirely.

This probably means more OF playing time for Peter Bourjos, which they should have done anyway.

Cassevah has been up and down with the Angels for a while, but hasn't been anything special.

Wells and Langerhans are out, and Torii Hunter is still on the restricted list. The Angels will have to make do with the players they have.


Talk about Calhoun, Cassevah, Wells and Langerhans with Angels fans over at Halos Heaven.
