Skaggs, Angels eye sweep of Royals

Tyler Skaggs will take the mound for the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday afternoon in the series finale against the Kansas City Royals, and it's fair to say that as of now, he's the club's ace.

After all, he's the only starter on the staff with a winning record (4-3) among those with at least five starts, and he has the best ERA of the group, as well. The problem is, on the Angels' staff, that isn't saying much.

His ERA is 5.05, and he's been plagued -- like so many others in the Angels' rotation -- by a high pitch count. That has meant he hasn't been able to pitch deep into games, taxing the bullpen. Skaggs has lasted at least six innings only twice in his seven starts, averaging five innings and 92 pitches per start.
