Angels rally with 3 in 9th to beat Indians 4-3
ANAHEIM, Calif. — C.J. Cron hit a tying two-run single with two out and the bases loaded in the ninth inning against Cleveland closer Cody Allen and pinch-runner Taylor Featherston scored on a wild pitch, giving the Los Angeles Angels a 4-3 victory over the Indians on Wednesday.
Allen (1-4), coming in to protect a 3-1 lead for Danny Salazar, was charged with his third blown save in 25 chances after giving up a one-out single to Albert Pujols and two-out walks to Erick Aybar and Conor Gillaspie. Cron lined an 0-1 pitch to center to tie it, and Allen uncorked his fourth wild pitch of the season and second of the inning with pinch-hitter David DeJesus at the plate. The Angels came in 0-44 when trailing after eight.
Cam Bedrosian (1-0), the son of 1987 Cy Young Award-winning closer Steve Bedrosian, pitched a perfect ninth for his first career victory.
Jose Ramirez and Ryan Raburn hit leadoff homers in the sixth and seventh innings against Angels first-time All-Star Hector Santiago, who allowed three runs and five hits in six-plus innings and struck out seven.
