Athletics-Angels Preview

(AP) -- After dropping the first two in this crucial four-game series, the Oakland Athletics are hoping Jeff Samardzija can stop the bleeding.

Samardzija and the visiting A's try to make up some ground against the AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.

Oakland (78-56) fell three games behind Los Angeles (81-53) after coming up empty in Friday's 4-0 defeat. Chris Iannetta homered and drove in a season-high three runs while Jered Weaver combined with two relievers on a five-hitter.
