GOG 2014 #18 - vs. Angels - ANSWERS POSTED

We have a two-game set against our rivals from Anaheim. This is an important series because the A's are now only 2 games ahead of the Angels - so would be nice to get a good series win and improve on that lead. So, let's go A's!

1. Series Outcome (3 points)

A's Sweep!

2. Game Score: Rank the starting pitchers for each team from highest Game Score to lowest Game Score. There should be two lists, one for each team.
