ANAHEIM Jeff Mathis Jersey , Calif. (AP) — After getting three big homers and nine innings of outstanding pitching to complete a series sweep, the Los Angeles Angels are headed into a day off with a rare feeling of contentment in their disappointing season.The Detroit Tigers are just grateful to be going home after a horrific California road trip ended with nothing but losses.Justin Upton and Albert Pujols hit back-to-back homers in the fifth inning, and the Angels swept the Tigers with a 6-0 victory Wednesday.Kole Calhoun hit a leadoff homer and rookie Jaime Barria (7-7) pitched five-hit ball into the sixth inning for the Angels, who were in a 1-6 skid before getting back to .500 with their first series sweep — and their first shutout victory — since early June.“It’s always good to win like this, especially when you sweep a series,” Barria said “Everybody is feeling much better. It’s a better atmosphere in the clubhouse.”The atmosphere was quiet down the hall as the struggling Tigers packed up for the plane: Detroit scored only eight runs on its 0-6 road trip, getting shut out three times. All but three of Detroit’s runs over 58 innings of play out West came in Tuesday night’s 11-5 loss to the Angels.“We’ve got a lot of guys struggling at the same time, a lot of guys fighting it,” Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire said. “We’ve got a day off, and we know we play better at home. We’ve got time to maybe work on a few things. We’ve got to get back on the positive side mentally.”Mike Trout missed his seventh consecutive game with a sore right wrist, but the Angels still scored 23 runs in the three-game series without their best player.“Obviously you never want to play many games without a guy like Mike in our lineup, but I think we’re holding our own http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authent ... kis-jersey ,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.The Angels broke it open in the fifth when Upton connected on a full-count changeup from Blaine Hardy (4-4) for a two-run homer. Moments later, Pujols added his 632nd career homer.Hardy yielded seven hits over five innings for the Tigers, who are headed home without a win on the West Coast. Detroit has lost 21 of its past 26 road games overall.Starting with three strikeouts in the first inning, Barria had another effective outing for the Angels, who have benefited greatly from his surprising emergence as a dependable starter in their injury-plagued rotation. He struck out five in total and walked one before leaving with two outs in the sixth. The Angels bullpen then got 10 consecutive outs to finish it.Jefry Marte had an RBI single in the first inning, and he doubled and scored on Jose Briceno’s single in the sixth.KOLE’S SHOTCalhoun led off for the Angels with his 15th homer. The blast was the ninth leadoff homer by Calhoun, who endured a miserable first half of the season before finding his stride since coming off the disabled list June 18. He has hit 14 homers since that DL stint, tops in the AL during that stretch.TROUT OUTThe Angels got more good news when Scioscia said he’s optimistic Trout could play Friday against the Oakland Athletics. Trout’s wrist has kept him out for the second-longest injury absence of his big-league career, but he will come in Thursday on the Angels’ day off to throw and perhaps to swing a bat.NO-HEIShohei Ohtani had the day off after homering Tuesday night as the Angels’ designated hitter. Ohtani frequently sits against left-handed starting pitchers such as Hardy.UNHAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTHThe Tigers haven’t won a series at Angel Stadium since August 2009, and they’ve lost 24 of their past 31 games in Anaheim. They’ve also lost 31 of their 43 meetings overall with the Angels since September 2012.TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: Catcher John Hicks went on the 10-day disabled list with a right groin strain. The move was retroactive to Tuesday. Detroit recalled catcher Grayson Greiner from Triple-A Toledo to back up James McCann.Angels: Manager Mike Scioscia is still hoping Tyler Skaggs can start Saturday against Oakland after coming off the 10-day disabled list. Skaggs went on the DL last weekend with a left adductor strain, but the move was retroactive to his previous start.UP NEXTTigers: After a day off, Jordan Zimmermann (4-4 Babe Ruth Jersey , 4.31 ERA) makes his 16th start of the season in the opener of a home series against Minnesota.Angels: After a day off, converted reliever Felix Pena (1-3, 4.97 ERA) makes his ninth start of the season Friday at home against Oakland. Pena has been a solid stopgap for the Halos’ troubled rotation. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning in Cleveland last weekend, but still took the loss. ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Rougned Odor and the Texas Rangers quickly got after yet another new Angels pitcher.Odor’s two-run single capped a five-run outburst in the second inning off recently acquired Odrisamer Despaigne, the 14th starting pitcher used by Los Angeles this season, and the Rangers went on to a 6-4 win on Friday night.“Hopefully we keep doing what we’re doing right now,” said Nomar Mazara, whose leadoff single started the second.“You’ve got to credit the hitters in the lineup, the job that they’re doing,” manager Jeff Banister said. “We’re constantly talking the message of grinding at-bats out, be able to keep the ball in the middle of the field http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authent ... phy-jersey , the at-bats to draw walks, to create run-scoring opportunities, to hit behind runners, and drive the baseball in the gap.”Joey Gallo’s two-run double into the right-field corner put the Rangers up 2-1 before he scored on a groundout by Isiah Kiner-Falefa. Odor’s two-run single was the fourth consecutive Rangers hit, and he added a sac fly in the seventh inning.Drew Hutchison (2-2) struck out six and allowed two runs over five innings in his third start for the Rangers.“Anytime you give up a run and then come back and score five … then I was able to kind of get in a rhythm after that and have a few good innings,” Hutchison said.Jose Leclerc struck out the side in the ninth for his fourth save.“He’s nasty. It’s fun to watch him when I’m playing the outfield,” Mazara said. “His pitches move a lot.” Andrelton Simmons hit a two-run homer , his eighth, that got the Angels within 5-4 in the sixth.Despaigne (2-1), acquired Tuesday from the Miami Marlins in exchange for cash considerations, allowed five runs in four innings while becoming the 34th pitcher used by Los Angeles, which had never before used more than 31 in a season. Two relievers made their big-league debuts in the series opener for the Angels Freddie Freeman Jersey , when Texas overcame a five-run deficit even before its first at-bat to win.“His stuff looked good. He obviously had a tough second inning,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “It looks like he lost his release point in the second. His ball-strike ratio was getting a little out of whack and he fought hard to get out of that inning with only five, but the damage was done at that point.”SHORT HOPSCarlos Tocci had his first career three-hit game and scored twice for Texas. …. The Angels have used 57 different players overall, also a team record.THE PLAYERS NAMED LATERThe Rangers acquired a pair of 19-year-old prospects, the players to be named later to complete trades they made last month with Pittsburgh and Arizona. Texas got 3B Sherten Apostel from the Pirates, who acquired right-hander Keone Kela in a July 30 deal. Left-hander Josh Javier is part of the July 31 trade that sent lefty reliever Jake Diekman to the Diamondbacks.TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: RHP Matt Shoemaker, who made only one start before going on the DL with a right forearm strain the first week of the season, is working out in Arizona. Scioscia said “Shoemaker is making some great strides, and that’s great to see.” The Angels play in Arizona next week.Rangers: CF Delino DeShields was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fracture on the tip of his right middle finger. He got hurt in the series opener Thursday night when he got hit by a pitch on an attempted bunt. … 3B Adrian Beltre missed his third consecutive game since coming out Monday night after aggravating his trouble left hamstring that has already landed him on the DL twice this season.UP NEXTAngels lefty Andrew Heaney has gone nearly three years since winning a start on the road. His streak of 16 consecutive winless road starts has already tied Rudy May (1965-69) for the longest such streak in team history. Heaney is 0-2 with a 10.57 ERA in two career starts at Texas. He is 0-5 in 11 road starts this year, and 7-2 in 11 starts at Angel Stadium. Martin Perez (2-5) will start for the Rangers.
