Anaheim, CA—–In a exciting matchup on Monday night, the Los Angeles Angels staged a remarkable comeback to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-5, ending their four-game losing streak. Ehire Adrianza and Mike Trout played pivotal roles in the seventh inning, scoring on a wild pitch and a throwing error to secure the win.

Adrianza, who had a solid performance with two hits and an RBI, kickstarted the Angels’ resurgence. Jo Adell also contributed with a homer as the team celebrated manager Ron Washington’s 72nd birthday with a much-needed victory.

Despite a strong start from the Phillies, highlighted by Alec Bohm’s hitting streak extension to 13 games and his three RBIs, the Angels’ pitching staff held their ground, limiting the Phillies to just six hits despite issuing nine walks.

Reliever Adam Cimber’s crucial escape from a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning was hailed by Washington as a game-saving moment. Carlos Estévez secured the win with his fifth save of the season, despite conceding a run in the ninth inning.

The turning point came in the seventh inning when Adrianza’s infield single and Trout’s stolen base set the stage for the Angels’ comeback. With two outs, Seranthony Domínguez’s wild pitch allowed Adrianza to score, and a high throw by catcher Garrett Stubbs enabled Trout to cross the plate, giving the Angels a two-run lead.

Although the Phillies got off to a strong start with three runs in the first inning, including Bohm’s two-run base hit, the Angels fought back with runs in the first and second innings. Adell’s solo home run and Adrianza’s RBI single narrowed the gap early on.

The game remained tight, with both teams trading runs until the Angels tied it at 4-4 in the sixth inning. Cole Tucker’s single leveled the score after Logan O’Hoppe’s grounder brought in a run earlier in the inning.

Looking ahead, Angels lefty Tyler Anderson and Phillies RHP Spencer Turnbull are set to take the mound in the next matchup. Anderson boasts an impressive 1.78 ERA, while Turnbull has allowed just one earned run in his last two starts.
