Angels 7, Rangers 0
Mike Napoli connects with his first RBI double Sunday. (Danny Moloshok/AP)
After two of the Angels' top hurlers were shelled to kick off the set, Joe Saunders put an end to the drubbings by tossing six scoreless innings to help the 2008 Halos become the first in franchise history to reach 100 wins. Mike Napoli did his best to show his postseason readiness by driving in four runs with a homer and two doubles.
