ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) While the Los Angeles Angels buzzed around their clubhouse preparing for their fantasy football draft, the Oakland Athletics had their own doors locked for a grim team meeting.

California's AL West powers are headed into September in very different moods after the Angels seized control of the division race in one remarkable weekend.

Mike Trout hit his career-high 31st homer and drove in three runs, Matt Shoemaker pitched seven shutout innings of five-hit ball, and the Angels completed a masterful four-game sweep of the A's with an 8-1 victory Sunday.
