|Lopez Single Lifts Cardinals Past Angels
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Felipe Lopez lofted a bases-loaded single in the 10th inning well over a drawn-in outfield, giving the St. Louis Cardinals a 6-5 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.
Ryan Franklin (3-0) struck out three and allowed a bunt hit in two innings, the longest outing of the season for the Cardinals' closer. St. Louis trailed by four runs in the fourth and two after seven, matching its biggest comeback of the season. The Cardinals took two of three from Los Angeles to wind up a 5-2 homestand.
The Angels had only two outfielders for the final at-bat against Trevor Bell, bringing center fielder Torii Hunter into a five-man infield playing Lopez to pull. Lopez's fly went to the warning track.
