Angels Rally To Beat Rockies 4-3

By  | 

Bobby Abreu drove in the tying and go-ahead runs with a bases-loaded single in the eighth inning after Colorado third baseman Ian Stewart messed up two bunt plays, and the Los Angeles Angels won 4-3 Tuesday night, the Rockies' second loss in 19 games.

Colorado had won six straight overall and a club-record nine in a row on the road.

Troy Tulowizki had two home runs and three RBIs for Colorado.

Ubaldo Jimenez (6-7) took a 3-2 lead into the eighth. After a leadoff walk, Stewart misplayed one bunt into a single and then didn't have his foot on the base for a forceout on the next. Abreu then singled.

Kevin Jepsen (2-2) pitched the eighth for the victory and Brian Fuentes got three outs for his major league-leading 20th save.
