Angels seek bounce-back win over A's

The Los Angeles Angels will host the Oakland A's on Saturday night in Anaheim, Calif., looking to get their bullpen back to where it was in the first six weeks of the season.

Heading into Friday's 4-2 loss to the A's, the Angels' bullpen ranked 15th in the majors with a 3.72 ERA. While it's in the middle of the pack, it has vastly improved from last season, when it ranked No. 24 out of the 30 clubs with a 4.59 ERA.

But the staff hit a snag recently in being swept by the Texas Rangers. The Angels gave up 23 runs in the three games, 12 of which were allowed by the bullpen.
