ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) --- Chris Iannetta homered with two outs in the 12th
inning against Drew Pomeranz, giving the Los Angeles Angels a 5-4 victory over
the Oakland Angels on Wednesday night.
Pomeranz (1-1) retired David Freese on a grounder to second base and Raul
Ibanez on a foul pop to the catcher before Iannetta drove the next pitch to
center field and just out of the reach of a leaping Craig Gentry, ending
Oakland's four-game winning streak.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia got six scoreless innings out of his much-maligned
bullpen, as the Athletics stranded runners in scoring position in the 10th,
11th and 12th. Joe Smith (1-0), who failed to retire any of the five batters he
faced in the eighth inning of the Angels' 10-9 loss on Tuesday night, pitched a
scoreless inning for the victory.
