Angels' Matt Thaiss: Wins game with second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Angels' Matt Thaiss: Fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thaiss will start at third base and bat eighth Sunday against the Orioles, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Thaiss's playing time had been trending down at the start of the second half, but he'll pick up his fourth consecutive start at either corner-infield spot in the series finale. The matchup with Baltimore's lowly pitching staff has woken Thaiss's dormant bat up to some extent this weekend, as he's gone 2-for-8 with a home run and a pair of walks in the first three games of the series.

Angels' Matt Thaiss: Hits game-winning home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thaiss went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk, three RBI and two runs scored during Sunday's 6-3 win over the Mariners.

Thaiss entered the game with just one hit in 14 at-bats this month, but he came through in a big way when he hit a three-run home run -- the first of his career -- to give his club the lead for good in the eighth inning. Despite this pivotal contribution, Thaiss should not be considered for fantasy purposes until he displays the ability to produce regularly.
