Josh Hamilton hits clutch home run as Los Angeles Angels beat St. Louis Cardinals 6-5

Josh Hamilton hit a tying two-run homer in Los Angeles' three-run 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.
