Downing Is Angel of Week
Brian Downing, who was six for 15 with four runs batted in, has been named Angel of the Week by The Times’ Orange County Edition.
Downing also walked four times and scored four runs during the week as the Angels extended their winning streak to five. His home run on Wednesday against the New York Yankees was his 12th of the season and 246th of his career, placing him 98th on the all-time list. His batting average, now at .302, peaked at .307 during the week.
