ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Erick Aybar singled home the
winning run in the tenth inning to carry the L-A Angels to a 4-to-3
win and and a three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Jose
Molina drove in two runs for the A-L West-leading Angels, who now
have an eight-game cushion over Seattle.
Pirates closer Matt Capps is 3-and-4 with the loss. He was
working his second inning of relief and gave up a one-out double to
Howie Kendrick. After an intentional walk and a flyout, Aybar sent
a line drive into the right field corner that bounced over the
short fence, giving the Angels their fourth straight victory.
The Pirates have lost five straight, matching their longest skid
