The LBLL Intermediate Angels have won 5 of their last 6 games, including season sweeps of the LBLL Intermediate Cubs and PVLL Blue Jays.  The team is firing on all cylinders down the home stretch with comfortable victories in nearly every outing.

The LBLL Intermediate division is very competitive this year, with deep pitching staffs on every team.  In particular, Stefen Brende (LBLL Astros), Jonah Cohen (LBLL Cubs), Antonio Robles (LBLL Cubs) and Laton Hunter (LBLL Dodgers) proved to be worthy competitors for the Angel's strong bats.  In the end though, the Angels are producing runs from the top of their line-up to the bottom, and playing solid defense in the field.  Sully Townley, Wes Wang and Franco Correa have proven to be a solid pitching combination this season, with all three pitchers facing great hitters.  Additionally, the Angels are picking up multiple bases with solid hitting performances by nearly every player on the team.  

Manger Shannon Townley's no nonsense approach seems to be working, and the Angels are peaking at the right time.  When questioned about the team's recent performance, the Angel's skipper said "The key to success is practice. I make my practices real hard because if a player is a quitter, I want him to quit in practice, not in the game."  And, in a rare press conference appearance, Coach Wang (the Wanger) also weighed in on the Angel's success.  Every Angel believes in The Wangers hitting techniques, and he was asked to comment on his approach.  Wanger's response was clear and to the point. He said "We don't want to win so much we'll be placed on probation by the league, we just want to win enough to warrant an investigation."

The Angels are in action again this Wednesday against the RHLL Astros.

After a recent win, Coach Shannon quotes excerpts from Sun Tzu's 5th century BC manuscript the Art of War - with lessons including "never start a land war in Asia" and "If you are beaned by a pitch, never rub the spot you've been hit"

A common sight during the Angels' strong performances of late has been Sully on the mound and the defense behind him ready to play
