June 1, 1975 Nolan Ryan wins his 100th game and pitches his 4th no-hitter, tying Sandy Koufax on the all-time list. https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CAL/CAL197506010.shtml  

May 31, 1989: Chuck Finley was named A.L. Player of the Month after posting a 4-0 record with three complete games, one shutout and a 1.37 ERA.   Three complete games in a month?! A lot

Not a top moment in Angels history, but on a more personal level:

June 10, 1983. I was there when Reggie Jackson, suffering from the flu, came off the bench in the 8th inning to hit a 3-run blast to center field to tie the Blue Jays 3-3. Doug DeCinces had broken up Luis Leal's no-hitter in the 7th inning with a two-out single. After Jackson's HR, DeCinces added a two-run bomb of his own in the 8th. Angels won 5-3.

It's the only home run I ever saw Reggie Jackson hit in person.

Chone Figgins became the first player in MLB to go 6-for-6 with a walk-off hit since Jim Northrup with the Tigers on August 18, 1969 (2-run HR in 13th)...His six hits tied an AL record for a 9-inning game and club record set by Garret Anderson who went six for seven in a 15-inning game at Texas on Sept. 27, 1996.

June 20, 1980

Angels tied a club record with 26 hits at Boston (set Aug. 25, 1979 at Toronto) en route to a 20-2 victory...Every starter in the Angels' lineup collected two-or-more hits and Fred Patek, standing at 5'4" and nicknamed "The Flea", became just the second shortstop in ML history to post three HRs in a game (Ernie Banks)...Patek hit a total of five HRs in 1980 - three coming in that game;

I did get to see him hit two HRs in person against the Skanks in a Saturday night game in July 1982, where they swept all 3 games that weekend from the Skanks.

I was just going to post this one.   The Halos swept 3 games at Fenway Park that weekend, after coming into that series with a woeful 20-40 record.

Tim Salmon connected for HR #30, giving the Angels four players with at least 30 HR, the first team in AL history to accomplish the feat.

 

Trivia: Who were the other three? (don't look)

Easy, GA, Glaus and the unforgettable Mo Vaughn.If I remember correctly Erstad had about 25 or so too.
