West champ Angels stay on a roll 7-6
Published October 2, 2005
ARLINGTON, Texas - Garret Anderson, Orlando Cabrera and Juan Rivera homered, and the Los Angeles Angels held off the Rangers 7-6 Saturday night.
Scot Shields pitched 11/3 innings of scoreless relief for the West champions, who won for the 13th time in 15 games. The Angels (94-67) are a game behind East champion New York (95-66) for the league's second-best record.
The Angels nearly blew a five-run lead. Mark Teixeira's run-scoring triple off Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth made it 7-6, but Rodriguez got Alfonso Soriano to ground out for his 44th save in 49 chances, including 17th straight.
Soriano hit a three-run homer in the sixth to bring Texas within 6-4.
ROYALS 7, JAYS 6: Andres Blanco hit a go-ahead single in the eighth inning, and visiting Kansas City rebounded after allowing six unearned runs in the seventh. The Royals (56-105) set a team record for losses on Friday night. A loss today would mean they would finish 50 games below .500.
TWINS 3, TIGERS 0 : Michael Cuddyer and Justin Morneau each had two hits and an RBI to support rookie Scott Baker, and host Minnesota took advantage of a wild pitch on Jacque Jones' strikeout to defeat Detroit.
ATHLETICS 4, MARINERS 3: Jason Kendall hit a tiebreaking double in the seventh inning to back Joe Blanton and lead visiting Oakland.
