The Los Angeles Angels

ANAHEIM Prince Fielder Jersey , Calif. (AP) — opted out of their Angel Stadium lease with the city of Anaheim on Tuesday, renewing the possibility they could build a stadium somewhere near their longtime Orange County home.The team and the city will negotiate on a new deal to keep the Angels in the fourth-oldest ballpark in the major leagues. The Angels also will renew their explorations of the feasibility of building a stadium elsewhere in Southern California.“As we look to the future, we need the ability to continue to deliver a high-quality fan experience beyond what the original lease allows,” Angels President John Carpino said in a statement. “It is important that we look at all our options and how we can best serve our fans now and in the future.”The Angels terminated their lease on the last day possible before 2028. The decision means the club has the ability to leave Angel Stadium after the 2019 season.The renewed possibility of the Angels leaving their longtime hometown could become an issue in the upcoming city elections: Anaheim will elect a new mayor and three city councilmembers next month.City of Anaheim spokesman Mike Lyster said the Angels’ decision was understandable.“We look forward to many great years of Angels baseball in Anaheim,” Lyster said in a statement. “We don’t believe there is a better place for the team than in the heart of Orange County’s most exciting city. … As fun as baseball is in Anaheim, this is a reminder that this is still a business. And we understand that the Angels need to preserve all options available. We welcome talking with the team about the future of baseball in Anaheim.”Owner Arte Moreno said before the 2017 season that he expected the Angels to stay at their ballpark for at least another decade, but the club is clearly open to the possibility of building a new stadium nearby if a favorable deal could be reached. Moreno also said last year that any move to a new stadium would require at least three years of preparation.After previous negotiations with Anaheim ended in 2014, the Angels actively explored building a new ballpark in Los Angeles, Irvine http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authent...tre-jersey , Carson or Tustin, an Orange County suburb just a few miles southeast of Angel Stadium. The Angels ultimately decided to stay home, and they spent millions on improvements to the city-owned stadium.Only Fenway Park, Chicago’s Wrigley Field and Dodger Stadium are older than the Anaheim ballpark also known as the Big A, which opened in 1966 on land formerly occupied by Orange County’s famed orange groves. Before that, the AL club founded in 1961 played its inaugural season at Los Angeles’ long-demolished Wrigley Field and four seasons at Dodger Stadium.The Angels have drawn at least 3 million fans in each of the past 16 seasons at Angel Stadium. They’ve kept up the remarkable streak even during their current nine-season drought on the field with no playoff victories and just one postseason appearance.Moreno irked many Orange County fans in 2005 when he changed his franchise’s name from the Anaheim Angels to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The “of Anaheim” suffix was dropped for the 2016 season, although the team rarely uses any geographical identifiers in its official communications. HOUSTON (AP) — In a stretch where the Arizona Diamondbacks feel like things haven’t been going their way, a lucky break on Friday night helped them to a much-needed win.Pinch-hitter Jon Jay’s tiebreaking triple in the eighth inning sent them past the Houston Astros 4-2, tightening a pair of playoff races.The AL West-leading Astros had their edge cut by Oakland to 2 ½ games. Arizona moved within three games of St. Louis and Los Angeles for the second NL wild-card spot.It was 2-all when Nick Ahmed doubled off Hector Rondon (2-4) with one out in the Arizona eighth. Jay hit a two-out Nolan Ryan Jersey , tiebreaking drive into the right field corner and later scored when a flyball by A.J. Pollock dropped in shallow center field for a single.The triple by Jay came on a ball he said hit twice off his bat and that he thought was probably going to be foul.“It kind of hooked back and that’s when I realized what had happened and I just ran,” Jay said. “It fell through and … that was a big break for us right there. We needed it.”Manager Torey Lovullo was impressed with the way his team persevered.“I know that we’ve been dealing with some frustrating circumstances,” he said. “For us to come out against the world champs and play the way we did, I was really proud of these guys.”Arizona starter Robbie Ray yielded two hits and two runs with six strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings. Brad Ziegler (2-6) pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings and Yoshihisa Hirano allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth for his second save.David Peralta had three hits and drove in two runs and Paul Goldschmidt doubled twice for Arizona.Astros starter Dallas Keuchel allowed five hits and two runs in six innings.Ray retired 13 of the last 14 batters he faced with Houston’s only baserunner in that span coming when he walked Carlos Correa with one out in the fourth.“It was frustrating,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “We didn’t do a ton between the first inning and the sixth inning, offensively. Ray settled in and flashed his good stuff. We did get a couple of opportunities but just couldn’t break through with the big hit.”The Diamondbacks scored twice in the first when Eduardo Escobar walked, Goldschmidt hit a ground-rule double and Peralta followed with a single.Houston came back with two in the bottom half. George Springer led off with a single, Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman walked to load the bases and Yuli Gurriel hit an RBI single. A double-play grounder by Correa tied it.TRAINER’S ROOMDiamondbacks: RHP Clay Buchholz, scratched from his scheduled start on Thursday with tightness in his right elbow http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authent...dor-jersey , has a flexor strain in his right forearm and Lovullo said after the game that he won’t pitch again this season. He added that he’d have more information about his condition in the coming days. … LHP T.J. McFarland has inflammation of a bone spur around his elbow, but Lovullo said he doesn’t think that it will keep him out long.TRIPLES ON TRIPLESJay’s triple was his fifth with the Diamondbacks this season and seventh overall. It also gave Arizona 46 triples this season which leads the majors.SIPP KEEPS STRANDINGHouston left-hander Tony Sipp struck out David Peralta with two runners in scoring position in the seventh inning on Friday night. He’s now stranded 31 of 35 runners he’s inherited this season, which is the third-highest percentage in the majors.UP NEXTHouston’s Charlie Morton (14-3, 3.15 ERA) opposes Arizona’s Zack Godley (14-9, 4.67) when the series continues Saturday night. Morton has won two straight and tied his career high for wins. Godley has dropped two in a row and allowed seven hits and five runs in four innings of a loss to the Rockies in his last start.
