The Angels have a chance to move into a Wild Card berth in their second-to-last season series. Can they make a statement against the Rangers as they hit the road one last time?
The Los Angeles Angels will be hitting the road for their final six games of the 2012 regular season. They will kick off a three-game series against the Texas Rangers in Arlington on Friday before wrapping things up with a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners.
While the Angels missed out on a crucial chance to close the gap to one game behind the Oakland Athletics for the second American League Wild Card spot, they are still very much in the hunt -- although they may need to win out the season to make that happen. It will be possible, but difficult. The last push for the postseason begins in Texas.

Friday's game will begin at 5:05 p.m. PT and will be televised on FOX Sports West. You can catch the radio broadcast on KLAA 830.
