SAN DIEGO (AP) --- Kole Calhoun hit a tiebreaking double in the 10th inning and
Justin Upton added a two-run homer to cap a four-run rally that carried the Los
Angeles Angels past the San Diego Padres 6-3 on Monday night.
Jose Briceno homered early for the Angels, who got 7 1/3 solid innings from
starter Andrew Heaney. Upton robbed pinch-hitter Eric Hosmer of a go-ahead
homer in the eighth, making a catch above the left-field wall to leave Hosmer
with a tying sacrifice fly.
Calhoun drove in Eric Young Jr. with a ground-rule double to put Los Angeles
ahead. Shohei Ohtani scored on David Fletcher's perfect squeeze bunt, and Upton
made it 6-2 when he connected off Craig Stammen (5-2) for his 25th homer.
Briceno opened the 10th with a double but was thrown out at third by catcher
Austin Hedges on Young's bunt. Briceno was originally ruled safe, but the call
was overturned after a replay review.
Young then stole second and Ohtani drew a pinch-hit walk to set up Calhoun's
Blake Parker gave up a solo homer to Hosmer in the bottom half before earning
his 12th save.
The Padres failed to score after putting runners on first and second in the
ninth when reliever Cam Bedrosian (4-2) got Freddy Galvis to foul out.
San Diego pulled even at 2 in the eighth when Galvis scored on Hosmer's deep
sacrifice fly. Galvis led off the inning with a single and went to third on
Jose Pirela's single.
Galvis hit a solo homer off Heaney in the third, just beyond the reach of a
leaping Upton. One day earlier, Galvis had a grand slam in San Diego's 9-3 win
over the Phillies.
Briceno homered in the top of the third, and Young scored on a wild pitch by
Padres starter Clayton Richard.
Winless on the road this season, Heaney held San Diego to two runs and four
hits. In his previous 10 starts away from home, he was 0-5 with a 5.30 ERA.
Richard, who gave up two runs and four hits over eight innings, is winless in
his last nine starts. The left-hander entered 0-4 with a 7.29 ERA in eight
starts since his most recent victory on June 22.
Padres center fielder Manuel Margot made the defensive play of the game with a
full-out diving catch on the dead run of Jefry Marte's sinking line drive to
end the third inning.
Wil Myers came off the 10-day disabled list and played third base for the first
time this season --- and second time in his five-year career. Of course, five
of the Angels' first six batted balls went his way. Myers caught Calhoun's line
drive, then threw out Fletcher and Upton on grounders in the first inning.
Myers' busy night didn't end until he had recorded eight assists and one putout.
Angels: Ohtani (elbow) threw a 33-pitch bullpen before the game. "Everything
went pretty well," he said through a translator. "This was a very good step for
me. I'm definitely moving forward. Hopefully I'll be able to pitch again this
season." ... OF Mike Trout has left the team to handle a family matter. The
Angels declined to say how long Trout would be away. The two-time AL MVP is
eligible to come off the 10-day disabled list Thursday after missing time with
a bruised right wrist. Los Angeles currently has 14 players on the DL.
Angels: Rookie RHP Jaime Barria (7-7, 3.59 ERA) makes his 18th start of the
year. He is 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA over his last three starts.
Padres: RHP Brett Kennedy (0-1) makes his second major league start, six days
after allowing six runs in four innings against Milwaukee. He became the first
pitcher since 1900 to give up three consecutive homers in the first inning of
