LaRoche caps Nats comeback for 5-4 win over Angels

WASHINGTON (AP) --- Adam LaRoche's tiebreaking RBI single off the first pitch
from Fernando Salas capped a four-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning,
and the Washington Nationals came back to beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-4
Wednesday night to avoid a sweep.
Los Angeles led 4-1 entering the ninth, and closer Ernesto Frieri (0-2) went
in, seeking his third save. Instead, he left with his second blown chance,
charged with all four runs Washington scored in that inning.
Jose Lobaton led off with his first homer of the season. One out later, Denard
Span singled, then Anthony Rendon walked. Frieri then gave up Jayson Werth's
two-run double to make it 4-all.
