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.
