Aug. 22-24, vs. Angels; Aug. 28-31 at Angels
A package deal between two division rivals who currently sport the best records in the majors. The A’s lead the Angels by 1 ½ games. So far, they also lead the season series 6-3. They swept a series at the Coliseum in late May and have split six games in Anaheim. Of course, the importance of these back-to-back weekend series depends largely on how well each team fares in the weeks leading up to them.
