PHOENIX (AP) – Angels pitcher Cam Bedrosian threw wildly after handing out a sacrifice attempt in the bottom of the ninth inning, enabling Jon Jay to score and the Arizona Diamondbacks to end 5-4 in Los Angeles on Tuesday-evening.
Jay was hit by a pitch and started the inning, then moved to second on John Ryan Murphy's sacrifice attempt that became a hit. A.J. Pollock then committed another sacrifice fly and Bedrosian (5-3) tried to eliminate Jay in third place.
The ball flew over third baseman Taylor Ward and Jay got up and sprinted home.
Diamondbacks closer Brad Boxberger (2-4) threw a scoreless ninth.
David Peralta drove in three points and came a triple shorter than the Arizona cycle.
The Angels rallied for two outs behind to make it a draw by scoring twice in the seventh inning off of home-keeper of pinch-hitter Jefry Marte and the one-out triple by David Fletcher. Fletcher had three hits and two RBI's.
The starting pitchers of both teams lasted six innings but did not get any decisions. Felix Pena hit a career-high 12, but gave up four runs and seven hits for Los Angeles, while Arizona's Patrick Corbin gave up two runs and five hits and struckout eight batters.
Peralta hit his seventh in 12 games, a shot from two runs in the Diamondbacks bullshit in the leftfield with one out in the first inning. The Diamondbacks lead the majors with 109 first-inning runs.
