The Los Angeles Angels host the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-game interleague series. Can the Angels continue to gain ground in the West?

The Los Angeles Angels will continue their interleague dealings starting on Friday night, as they return to Angel Stadium to host the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Angels are just coming off of a successful series at Dodger Stadium, where they took the Freeway Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers by winning two out of three games in enemy territory. The Diamondbacks, meanwhile, lost two of three to the Texas Rangers, although their most recent game was a blowout win against the first-place team, inadvertently helping out the cause of the Angels.

The Halos hope to continue to gain ground on the slumping Rangers, as they now stand just three games in back of Texas in the American League West.

TV Schedule & Probable Pitchers

Friday's game will begin at 7:05 p.m. PT and will be televised on FOX Sports West. You can catch the radio broadcast on KLAA 830 AM. The resurgent Trevor Cahill will get the start for the D-backs, attempting to even up his 4-5 record. Dan Haren is also on the road back to .500 and will take the mound for the Angels.

First pitch on Saturday will be at 7:05 p.m. PT and the game will be televised on FOX Sports West. You can catch the radio broadcast on KLAA 830 AM. Lefty Joe Saunders returns to the Big A for the first time since being traded to Arizona in 2010. He'll go up against Ervin Santana as he tries to get one over on his old team.

Sunday's finale will begin at 12:35 p.m. PT and will be televised on FOX Sports West. You can catch the radio broadcast on KLAA 830 AM. Right-hander Ian Kennedy starts for Arizona and always presents a significant threat. He'll take on Jered Weaver's replacement in the order, Garrett Richards, who is 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA in his two starts this season.
