Angels-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- After the Los Angeles Angels derailed Oakland's pursuit of an AL West title, the division champions are trying to inch closer to home-field advantage throughout the playoffs at the Athletics' ballpark.

The division foes meet Tuesday night in the second of a three-game series with Oakland trying to build on its wild-card lead.

The A's (86-70), who lead Kansas City by one game and own a three-game cushion over Seattle, are trying to win three straight for the first time since Aug. 7-9 after kicking off the series on a positive note with a six-run first inning in Monday's 8-4 win.
