    The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2005 season was the franchise's 45th since its inception. The regular season ended with a record of 95-67, resulting in the Angels winning the American League West division title for the second consecutive season, its fifth in franchise history.

    In the postseason, the Angels defeated the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series, 3-2, but were subsequently defeated by the eventual World Series champion Chicago White Sox in the American League Championship Series, 4-1.

    The season was also notable for being the first the team played under its controversial present-day "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim" moniker.

    With their win on Mon. September 27, 2005, the Angels clinched their second straight American League West championship.

    American League Division Series

    The 2005 American League Division Series featured the AL West champion Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the AL East champion New York Yankees. The series began on October 4, 2005 with the Angels splitting the first two games at Angel Stadium. The Angels then proceeded to split the two games at Yankee Stadium and finally won the fifth game at Angel Stadium ultimately winning the series 3–2.

    American League Championship Series

    The 2005 American League Championship Series featured the AL West champion Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the AL Central champion Chicago White Sox. The series began on October 11, 2005 with the Angels winning the first game at U.S. Cellular Field, but after an incredibly controversial second game loss, the Angels dropped the next three and lost the series 4–1. Because of the controversy surrounding game two, Angel fans to this day (as of the 2013 season) give A. J. Pierzynski a poor welcome at Angel Stadium and still think that Doug Eddings suffers from "Dumbass Umpire Syndrome".

    Note: Major League Baseball's playoff format automatically seeds the Wild Card team 4th. Normally, the No. 1 seed plays the No. 4 seed in the Division Series. However, MLB does not allow the No. 1 seed to play the 4th seed/Wild Card winner in the Division Series if they are from the same division, instead having the No. 1 seed play the next lowest seed, the No. 3 seed.
