Angels-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- Pitching for the AL's worst team could hurt Sonny Gray's bid for the Cy Young Award, but he's continued to do his part even when the offense or defense have failed him.

He had only himself to blame the last time he faced the Los Angeles Angels, though.

The right-hander makes his fifth start against the visiting Angels as the Oakland Athletics look to win for the fourth time in five games Wednesday.
