ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) --- David Freese hit a tiebreaking homer off Joba
Chamberlain in the eighth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Detroit
Tigers 2-1 Sunday for their third straight victory.
Erick Aybar scored from second base on Rick Porcello's poor pickoff throw in
the fifth for the Angels, who improved the majors' second-best record to 63-41
in the finale of a 10-game homestand.
Hector Santiago and three Angels relievers combined on a three hitter as
Detroit managed just one hit in its final 25 at-bats, getting just one
baserunner after the first inning.
Victor Martinez had an RBI double in the first inning for the Tigers, who have
lost nine of 10 at the Big A, including three of four in this series.
