Angels Beat Rangers: Miracle Comeback
Published: October 4, 2015
Angels Beat Rangers: Miracle Comeback, After their biggest rally this season, the Los Angeles Angels are going into the 162nd game still with a chance to reach the playoffs. They need another win, and some help.
“It’s almost surreal to come back in that situation,” said Johnny Giavotella, whose tiebreaking RBI single capped a five-run ninth inning for the Angels in an 11-10 victory over the playoff-bound Texas Rangers on Saturday. “We never lost faith.”
Erick Aybar and Kole Calhoun started the ninth with consecutive homers off Shawn Tolleson, the Rangers closer appearing in his fifth straight game. The Angels then strung together four consecutive two-out singles off Ross Ohlendorf (3-1).
“It’s probably the craziest game I’ve been a part of, with everything we’ve got on the line,” Mike Trout said. “We lose that game, we’re in trouble.”
The Angels, who won the AL West last season, go into Sunday a game behind Houston for the AL’s second wild card after the Astros won in Arizona late Saturday night.
To force a tiebreaker for the final playoff spot, the Angels have to win their series finale at Texas and Houston has to lose in Arizona.
