ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP)
Howie Kendrick drove in the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning with his third hit and Kevin Frandsen followed with a two-run double in the Los Angeles Angels' 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night in the opener of another interleague Freeway Series.
Bobby Abreu hit a tying, three-run homer in the sixth and Ervin Santana pitched seven solid innings for the Angels, who rallied from a three-run deficit for their fourth win in five games.
They also posted their fourth straight win over the Dodgers, who matched their worst skid of the season with their fifth straight loss, including three straight at Fenway Park last weekend.
Clayton Kershaw pitched five outstanding innings for the Dodgers before tiring late.
