Covers Preview - The Los Angeles Angels may still be reeling from the loss of their ace but enter the weekend with the best record in baseball. The previous owners of that title, the Oakland Athletics, trail the Angels by two games in the American League West and will look to make up some of that ground when they host Los Angeles in the opener of a three-game series on Friday. The Angels learned on Thursday that pitching ace Garrett Richards would miss the rest of the season with a torn patellar tendon.
