MLB Team Report - Los Angeles Angels - INSIDE PITCH
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- With his batting average dropping, David Freese dropped down in the batting order.
The Los Angeles Angels third baseman, who batted either fourth, fifth or sixth all season, was dropped to the No. 7 spot in the lineup Tuesday against the Oakland A's.
The move paid some immediate dividends, as Freese went 2-for-4 in the Angels' 10-9, 11-inning loss. He is now hitting .170 (8-for-47) this season.
