Angels shake off slump, rally for win over Phillies

Phillies, Angels

Taylor Ward, Brandon Drury, Ehire Adrianza and Zach Neto had two hits each to help the Los Angeles Angels earn a 6-5, come-from-behind win against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday in the opener in their three-game series at Anaheim, Calif.

Jo Adell homered and Luis Rengifo doubled and scored for Los Angeles, which had lost four in a row and nine of 10.

Angels starter Griffin Canning allowed four runs and three hits in five innings. He struck out one and walked five.

Hunter Strickland, Adam Cimber (2-0) and Matt Moore each threw a scoreless inning of relief before Carlos Estevez gave up a run on a sacrifice fly by Alec Bohm in the ninth before closing out his fifth save.

Bohm also had a two-run single in the three-run first and Trea Turner had two hits and scored twice for Philadelphia, which had won four in a row and 11 of 13.

Phillies starter Cristopher Sanchez gave up four runs and seven hits in five-plus innings. He fanned one and walked two.

Bohm gave Philadelphia a 2-0 lead with a bases-loaded single in the first that extended his hitting streak to 13 games.

Brandon Marsh followed with a sacrifice fly to make it 3-0.

Adell, who was moved into the No. 2 spot in the lineup for the first time this season, lined a solo home run just inside the left field foul pole with one out in the bottom of the first to cut it to 3-1.

Rengifo led off the Los Angeles second with a double into the left field corner. Cole Tucker, who was promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake earlier Monday after veteran outfielder Aaron Hicks was released, walked.

After both runners moved up on a double steal, Adrianza lined a single to right to score Rengifo and cut it to 3-2.

Philadelphia made it 4-2 in the fifth when Canning made a third pickoff throw to first with runners on the corners, scoring the runner from third on the disengagement violation.

Ward and Drury singled to start the sixth, ending the night for Sanchez. Orion Kerkering entered and the Angels scored a run on Logan O’Hoppe’s groundout before Tucker singled up the middle to tie it 4-4.

The Angels had runners on second and third with two outs in the seventh when Seranthony Dominguez (1-2) threw a wild pitch that scored one run and another came home when catcher Garrett Stubbs overthrew Dominguez covering the plate, giving Los Angeles a 6-4 lead.
