The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have struggled at one of the most inopportune times of the season, putting their postseason chances in doubt as the losses begin to pile up. Entering September, the Angels are 6.5 games behind the Houston Astros in the American League West division and 3.5 games back of the Texas Rangers for the final American League Wild Card position.
After holding down a playoff berth for much of the season, the Angels have entered a serious rough patch that has seen them go 2-8 in their last 10 games, while also posting a 10-18 mark in August, their worst record of any month this season. With so many teams hovering around the AL Wild Card picture, if the Angels don’t turn it back around soon, they could find themselves in too deep of a hole as the 2015 campaign moves along through September.
But not all is lost, as there is still a month-plus of games to catch the Rangers, Astros or any other Wild Card contenders on their radar. It’s the best time to attend Angels games, as every pitch and at-bat affects their chances at reaching the postseason. With secondary market information provided by TiqIQ.com, below are the most and least expensive Angels tickets for the final full month of the season.

The next three most expensive games in September for the Halos come against an in-state rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have their own playoff concerns to worry about. The Dodgers are a few games up on the defending champion San Francisco Giants, making it very critical that they continue to play consistent baseball to ensure they capture the NL West and reach the postseason. Starting at $55 per night, Anaheim hotels can be reserved through Hipmunk to engineer a baseball road trip, as the Angels and Dodgers hook up in an immensely important Interleague series that will have playoff implications for both squads.
Least Expensive: 9/14-16/2015 | Seattle Mariners vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim | Safeco Field | Average Price: $33 (Three Games)
For Anaheim’s least expensive game left, that would be against the division rival Mariners, who have arguably been the biggest disappointment in the American League this season. Both teams, in fact, had relatively high expectations in contending for the AL pennant, and only the Angels really have a chance still at fulfilling those high projections. The three-game series features an average ticket price of just $33 on the secondary market, making it one of the better bargains left on the Angels’ schedule.
