Perhaps this is all too little, too late for the Angels. Perhaps it won't matter how well they finish out the season because the A's Cinderella story won't include enough losses. Perhaps, in the end, the holes the Angels dug -- by losing 14 of the first 20 games of the season, then 22 of the first 36 after the All-Star break, then six of 10 going into this weekend set -- will prove too deep.

But it seems they're not going down without a fight.

The Angels continued to prove that on Sunday, when a workman-like outing by Jered Weaver and some timely hitting against Gavin Floyd gave the Angels a 4-1 victory and a three-game, rejuvenating sweep over the American League Central-leading White Sox at Angel Stadium.
