The Oakland A's are hosting the Los Angeles Angels for a three-game series. Second place in the American League West is at stake.

The Oakland Athletics have been surprising a lot of people. As the Los Angeles Angels head to the O.co Coliseum to begin a three-game series on Monday, the A's hold a half-game lead over the Halos for second place in the American League West. The Angels will hope to switch places with the A's in the division by the time they leave Oakland.

The Coliseum has held a special kind of magic for the A's over the course of the season. Oakland leads the Majors in walk-off wins, with 13 in all. With the Angels having bullpen troubles all season, that number may make Angels fans cringe. It will be up to the Angels lineup to put some big numbers up on the board and give the middle relief plenty of cushion.
