Halo Highlights- Angels Win on Walk-off Wild Pitch

By Jason Evans

The Angels really needed that win last night. This might be the win that gets them to win 10 of 13 or something like that. The good teams can fight and claw for wins and that’s exactly what the Angels did. They rallied from a five run deficit to come back and win 6-5.

Ervin Santana had one blow up inning in the top of the third when Dustin Ackley hit a two run homer and John Jaso hit a three run homer. The Angels came right back in the bottom half when that Mike Trout guy hit his 21st homer of the year, a three run shot. Then one of the weirdest plays you will see occurred in the bottom of the fifth. Howard Kendrick and Erick Aybar singled and Chris Iannetta walked. Trout hit a long fly ball to right that Erick Thames ran down and caught it at the wall. The ball got away in the infield and two runs scored to tie it. In the ninth, Kendrys Morales doubled. Alberto Callaspo was intentionally walked. Kendrick bunted the runners over. Erick Aybar was intentionally walked and Mariner pitcher Josh Kinney uncorked a wild pitch to end the game.

We’ll see if the Angels can keep it going tonight when Dan Haren will take on Hisashi Iwakuma at 6:05PT/9:05ET.
