Rays Rally To Beat Angels
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Pinch-hitter Carlos Pena delivered a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning, Evan Longoria also hit a two-run shot and the Tampa Bay Rays overcame an eight-run deficit to beat the Los Angeles Angels 10-8 on Saturday night.
Jake McGee (4-2) earned the win with a perfect seventh inning and Fernando Rodney got three outs for his major league-leading 38th save. The Rays, held to one hit over the first four innings by C.J. Wilson, rallied from an 8-0 hole with seven runs in the fifth against the All-Star left-hander.
Rodney ended the game by striking out Erick Aybar and retiring pinch-hitter Maicer Izturis on a grounder with runners at second and third.
