The Angels head to San Francisco to take on their victims from the 2002 World Series as inter-league play continues. Los Angeles is coming off an encouraging three game sweep of the San Diego Padres. Angels received outstanding pitching performances from Jered Weaver (complete game shut out) and Joe Saunders against the Friars, but the highlight of the series was Saturday night's 3 home-run performance from Torii Hunter.

After the Halos 11-6 win on Friday, Angels manager Mike Scioscia decided to send down struggling second baseman Howie Kendrick to AAA Salt Lake City. The move is designed for Kendrick to get healthy on AAA pitching and regain some confidence in his swing. To replace Kendrick on the roster, the Angels recalled second baseman Sean Rodriguez.

The Angels did receive some bad news over the weekend as they learned reliever Scot Shields would need season-ending knee surgery. Shields is expected to be out six months but should be recovered in time for Spring Training 2010.

Newly converted reliever Kelvim Escobar feels he can fill the void left by Shields.
