The Angels had a huge opportunity to stretch their winning streak to nine games on Monday, and it blew up in their faces. Los Angeles jumped out to a 6-2 lead over the Dodgers after the fourth. But CJ Wilson broke down in the fifth, allowing four runs to tie the game at six. AJ Ellis put the Dodgers in front in the sixth with a sac fly off of Michael Kohn, but the Angels tiied it up in the seventh after a Howard Kendrick single. That didn't last long though, as Robert Coello had his first rough outing with Anaheim, allowing a run on three hits in two innings to finish off the game. On the bright side, their winning streak has moved the Angels to third in the AL West. On the not so bright side, the Angels are still 8.5 games behind the Rangers in the division, and they really could have used the extra game they would have picked up with a loss, especially after the Rangers got swept in a doubleheader in Arizona.

Game of the Day: Diamondbacks 5, Rangers 4. The Diamondbacks swept a doubleheader from Texas, and it couldn't have come in more stunning fashion. Arizona trailed 4-2 through seven and through that point, Yu Darvish had allowed two runs on five hits, striking out 13 and walking none. Of course, after allowing a single to Wil Nieves, Darvish allowed a game-tying homer to Didi Gregorius. In the ninth, Texas put men on the corners with two outs, but Elvis Andrus grounded out to end the inning. In the bottom of the inning, Miguel Montero led off with a double, and the wheels came off from there. Jason Frasor struck out AJ Pollock, but Robbie Ross replaced him just to intentionally walk Martin Prado. Cliff Pennington proceeded to single in Montero to hand Texas a tough loss.
