    The California Angels' 1995 season featured the Angels finishing in second place in the American League West with a record of 78 wins and 67 losses.

    The 1995 Angels went through statistically the worst late-season collapse in Major League Baseball history.[1] On August 16, they held a 10½-game lead over the Texas Rangers and an 11½-game lead over the Seattle Mariners, but suffered through a late season slump, including a nine-game losing streak from August 25 to September 3. They were still atop the division, leading Seattle by six games and Texas by 7½, when a second nine-game losing streak from September 13 to 23 dropped them out of first place. The Angels rebounded to win the last five scheduled games to tie Seattle for the division lead, forcing a one-game playoff to determine the division champion. Mariners ace Randy Johnson led his team to a 9–1 triumph over Angel hurler Mark Langston in the tiebreaker game, ending the Angels' season.[2][3] It was the closest the Angels would come to reaching the postseason between 1986 and 2002.
