Angels put on their rally Halos
Twin-bill split for LA
It was an up-and-down contest that, in the end, the Angels came away from as the victors. After leading for most of the game, the Halos gave it up in the eighth inning. But they stormed right back in the ninth off Eric Gagne, tying it on Orlando Cabrera's RBI single, and then retaking the lead on Vladimir Guerrero's two-run double.
