Crucial week ahead as the trade deadline approaches. Rangers return home to face the Red Sox and White Sox. Angels are at home all week as well, facing the Royals and the Rays. The hot A’s are on the road at Toronto and Baltimore. The Royals have given the Angels fits the past two years. If they can do it again, there’ a chance at keeping the lead at 5. If not, they could pick up another game on the Rangers heading into next week’s 4-game showdown in Arlington.
