The Angels are still not healthy, still receiving lackluster seasons from an array of hitters, still struggling to capture the public’s interest, still unlikely to actually qualify for the postseason.
But they are undeniably making this thing interesting. They secured their fourth straight victory and sixth in seven tries Friday, scoring six unanswered runs to come back to beat Oakland 8-6 at Angel Stadium. They are 55-55, and only two games separate them from playoff position.
“Better late than never,” said Ben Revere, who scored Friday’s winning run.
It has become the team’s refrain this summer, enjoyed because of its duality: “We’re still in it.”
