The Angels grabbed the opener of their doubleheader against the Athletics 4-2, and look for the twinbill sweep in the second game. Ervin Santana gets the start for the Angels, while Rich Harden starts for Oakland. Here are the starting lineups for Game 2 of the doubleheader:

The Angels used just two relievers in Game 1, Scott Downs and Jordan Walden. One night after using six relievers to throw 3 2/3 innings, Oakland used three relievers in the first game today: Michael Wuertz, Brian Fuentes, and Fautino De Los Santos. Wuertz is the only A's reliever to be used last night and today. To help their bullpen depth, Oakland in between games recalled pitcher Jerry Blevins and optioned infielder Adam Rosales, per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The second game will be televised by Fox Sports West. For more news and information on the Angels, or on today's games, be sure to read the SB Nation blog Halos Heaven.
