ANAHEIM, Calif. -- After watching Angels phenom Francisco Rodriguez retire the side in the sixth inning on seven pitches -- all of which were strikes -- the Giants knew they could ill afford to relinquish their lead.

But that's just what they did as they blew a sixth-inning advantage, floundered at Rodriguez's pitches for the next two innings and lost Game 2 of the World Series, 11-10, to the Angels that evened the best-of-seven series at one game apiece.

Rodriguez (1-0) started his outing with 12 straight strikes and finished with 22 in 26 pitches to earn his fifth win in the playoffs, the most ever by an American Leaguer in the postseason. His three-inning effort spoiled an improbable comeback by the Giants that saw the team erase a five-run lead to take a two-run advantage in the fifth inning, only to lose it less than two innings later.  More >

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The first World Series win in Angels history came courtesy of the team's Old Man River.

When the smoke cleared from the Old West-style Sunday shootout, career Angel Tim Salmon's two home runs and four RBIs -- including a game-winning two-run bomb in the eighth -- proved the difference in a thrilling 11-10 victory over the San Francisco Giants in front of 44,584 at Edison Field.

The Angels evened up the Series at 1-1 heading to Pac Bell Park for Games 3, 4 and 5. Game 3 is slated for Tuesday night.

In a game that featured 21 runs on 28 hits, the difference was Salmon, who capped a 4-for-4 night with a laser into the left-field bullpen off hard-throwing Giants reliever Felix Rodriguez to give the Angels the last laugh. More >
