The Los Angeles Angels proved they're far from out of the Wild Card race as they swept the Oakland Athletics to begin their week. On Friday, they will return home to face the very tough Detroit Tigers for a three-game series. The Angels are 8-2 over their last 10 games and will be wary of the playoff repercussions of this set of games. The Tigers will come to the Big A just a half-game behind the Halos in the Wild Card chase and one game in back of the Chicago White Sox in the American League Central.
