Angels Stay Hot by Sweeping Mariners

The Los Angeles Angels appeared to be dead and buried for a large portion of this season. Many fans and members of the media had completely written them off when Mike Trout went on the disabled list earlier this year. However, the team played surprisingly well during Trout's absence. They managed to avoid any prolonged losing streaks that would bury them in the playoff race. They have been on fire since Trout has returned to the lineup. They are now playing their best baseball of the year when it matters most.
