American League Game Summary - Tampa Bay at LA Angels of Anaheim



(Thursday, September 5th)

Final Score: LA Angels of Anaheim 6, Tampa Bay 2

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Jerome Williams struck out seven in 6 1/3 innings and all nine batters in the lineup recorded at least one hit as the LA Angels of Anaheim took the finale of a four-game set from the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-2.

Williams (6-10) allowed both runs on six hits while walking a pair to earn his first victory since June 12. The Angels have won 10 of their last 13 overall.

"I felt good," said Williams. "I just tried to put up zeros and give us a chance to win. I just went out there and did my job."

Josh Hamilton and Luis Jimenez each clubbed a pair of hits and scored twice while Collin Cowgill drove in three in the win.

David Price (8-7), who had given up just one run in his last 23 innings against the Angels, was reached for six runs on 11 hits over seven innings.

"He (Price) made some bad pitches at the wrong times," said Rays manager Joe Maddon. "We're trying way too hard to make it happen. Sometimes you have to relax and go play the game."

Price pitched out of a jam in the first inning after putting runners on the corners with no outs, but failed to keep LA off the board in the second. Singles by Hamilton, Jimenez and Grant Green loaded the bases for Cowgill, who cleared the bags with a double to the wall in left-center.

"Any time you hit a baseball and don't feel it in your hands, you know you hit it pretty good," said Cowgill. "I'm glad I got a big hit but I wasn't the only guy."

Tampa Bay got two back in the third on James Loney's RBI-double to right, plating David DeJesus and Ben Zobrist.

The Angels pushed three more runs across in the bottom of the third to take a 6-2 lead. Mark Trumbo began the surge with a double to left-center, and Hamilton followed with an RBI-single to center. Jimenez doubled Hamilton to third and Kole Calhoun scored him with a single to right before Green grounded into a fielder's choice, allowing Jimenez to score.

Williams put two on in the fourth but got Matt Joyce to pop out to third and Loney ended the inning by grounding into a fielder's choice.

Buddy Boshers, Michael Kohn and Ernesto Frieri combined for 2 2/3 hitless innings of relief.
