      Angels use 3-run ninth to beat Cardinals 6-5


      ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Josh Hamilton hit a tying two-run homer in Los Angeles' three-run ninth inning, and the Angels rallied for a 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night.


      Hamilton connected against closer Edward Mujica (0-1). Howie Kendrick and Mark Trumbo followed with singles, and Mujica retired his next two batters before Erick Aybar drove in the winning run with an opposite-field single to left.


      Scott Downs (2-2) got the victory with a scoreless ninth.
