Angels Win on Wild Pitch, Beat Mariners 3-2 in 10 Inning
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Kole Calhoun scored the winning run on a wild pitch by Tom Wilhelmsen in the 10th inning after Albert Pujols grounded into a bases-loaded double play against a five-man infield, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Sunday.
Johnny Giavotella led off the 10th with a line-drive single off the glove of Wilhelmsen (1-2). Calhoun followed with a hit-and-run single that put runners at the corners, and Mike Trout was intentionally walked for the second straight time.
Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon then motioned left fielder Dustin Ackley in for a five-man infield, and Pujols grounded into a 6-2-3 double play started by shortstop Brad Miller. But Wilhelmsen uncorked his first wild pitch of the season on a full count with runners at second and third and rookie Kyle Kubitza at the plate.
