The Angels clubbed Devil Ray pitching but good, feasting on Edwin Jackson and Jae Seo before the middle relievers even had a chance to enlarge their ERAs.
The Rays got some nice pitching performances from James Shields (8 innings, 1 earned run) and Scott Kazmir (7 innings, 2 earned runs) to best the A's in the first and third games of their three game series.
B. J. Upton has continued to prosper at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a home run.
Casey Fossum took the lone loss to the A's in this series. He gave up six runs in the first inning.
