Angels, A's to Battle for First Place in AL West

The American League West race won't be decided this weekend, not with a month remaining in the season and not with two of the season's best teams battling at the top, but the next four games could shape who's chasing who -- and how much ground will separate them.

Up one game in the division, the Angels host the A's for a four-game set starting tonight, and it'll be the last time the teams meet until the second-to-last series of the season, in Oakland.

Sonny Gray will get the ball for Oakland. He's 13-7 with a 3.00 ERA, and his previous start was a victory over the Angels, a game in which he allowed three runs on six hits in 8 1/3 innings.

Left-hander C.J. Wilson will start for the Angels, and he also last pitched against his division rival. Wilson, 10-8 with a 4.45 ERA, held the A's to just one run on five hits in 6 1/3 innings.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
