Tools

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Josh Hamilton hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning, after the Angels rallied to tie it with four runs in the ninth, and Los Angeles beat the Boston Red Sox 9-7 on Saturday night to snap the AL East-leaders' five-game winning streak.

Brad Hawpe, who came in to play first base in the 10th, singled with one out in the 11th against Craig Breslow (2-2). Hamilton drive the next pitch out to right-center for his 12th homer and second dramatic blast in three nights.

Dane De La Rosa (4-1) earned this victory with a scoreless inning.

It was the third big comeback win at home for the Angels in less than four weeks. On June 20, they turned a 7-0 deficit against Seattle into a 10-9 win, and they rallied with three runs in the ninth against St. Louis on Thursday — including a two-run homer by Hamilton — for a 6-5 win.
