Angels 5, Rockies 2
Jared Walsh broke a deadlocked tie in the top of the eleventh inning and sent the Angels to victory. With two men on and one out, Walsh proved that he is, at least for the moment, the right man for the two-spot in the lineup.
Jaime Barría got the start for the Angels and pitched 5.1 solid innings, allowing five hits and two runs while striking out two and walking two. This was an impressive performance at Coors, considering he didn’t get many whiffs.
The Angels were unable to muster much offense off Kyle Freeland, with the only two runs coming on a Max Stassi sacrifice fly and an Albert Pujols double. Pujols now has 669 doubles and continues to climb the all-time list.
Matt Andriese got the save.
With the Astros winning earlier, this was a much-needed win.
