Halos work a miracle, rally to beat O's in 12

Bobby Abreu capped a three-run 12th inning with 8, in the second game series.

Baltimore sent Kevin Gregg (0-2) to the mound in the bottom of the 12th after scoring two runs in the top half. Erick Aybar singled and Mike Trout was hit by a pitch. Hank Conger put down a bunt that third baseman Josh Bell picked up but his throw to first was off the mark, which allowed Aybar to score.

Peter Bourjos then hit a sharp grounder to Bell, who made a nice diving stop and threw to first. Bourjos, however, beat the throw to load the bases with no outs. Alberto Callaspo then walked to force in the tying run.

Troy Patton took over on the mound and Abreu greeted him with a deep fly ball to center. Vernon Wells, who came on as a pinch-runner for Conger, crossed the plate for the thrilling victory.

The win moved the Angels five games behind the Rangers in the AL West. Texas lost to the White Sox on Saturday.
