The Angels pulled out another thriller tonight, 8-7 in 11 innings. Down by a run with two outs and nobody on in the ninth, Guerrero singled off of the previously nigh-untouchable Francisco Cordero. The next batter, Curtis Pride, cranked one off the wall in dead center, scoring The Monster and tying the game. In the 11th, with Erstad on first, Glaus and Cordero engaged in an at-bat for the ages, until finally Glaus knocked one out of the park. Percival gave back one of those runs in the bottom of the 11th, but in the end got Michael Young, who had earlier tied and broken the Rangers' single-season hit record, to ground to third to end it.

More tomorrow, but for now, the one bit of bad news to come out of the game is that Garret Anderson had to leave with an irritated patella tendon near his left knee. Hopefully this won't keep him out more than a game.
