Another day, another Angels comeback

July 23, 2009


— The Angels never seem to be out of a game. Even with three star players out because of injury, Los Angeles keeps finding ways to rally and string hits together for one unlikely comeback after another.

Of course, it didn’t hurt that the Angels spent the past three games facing a team that chucks away leads like they’re day-old fish wrap.

Maicer Izturis had four RBIs, and Los Angeles scored five runs in the eighth inning against Kansas City’s beleaguered bullpen, helping the Angels beat the Royals, 9-6, Wednesday night to complete an improbable three-game sweep.

“This a team that never looks at the scoreboard, we never let our guard down,” Izturis said through an interpreter.

Mike Napoli hit a tying two-run homer in the eighth inning off Roman Colon (1-1) and Chone Figgins followed three straight walks with his fourth hit, a two-run double that completed Los Angeles’ majors-best 30th comeback and another Kansas City collapse.
