BASEBALL / DAILY REPORT : ANGELS : Valera Takes Full Advantage

This, pitcher Julio Valera said Sunday after the Angels' 6-2 victory over the Texas Rangers, is what he had in mind all along.

"I was waiting for my big chance," said Valera, who gave up four hits in six innings, "and now that I got it, I won't let it go. This is what I always wanted." Valera had been in the bullpen early in the season because of a tender elbow.
