ANAHEIM – Scott Spiezio’s two-out, three-run double in the seventh inning broke open a close game and led the Angels to a 7-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays before 19,869 at Edison Field.

The Angels took a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the seventh and loaded the bases on a single, error and a walk. With two outs, Devil Rays starter Victor Zambrano was replaced by reliever Travis Harper, who gave up the bases-clearing double to Spiezio.

It was one of three hits for Spiezio, who wasn't the only Angel two swing the bat well in the game. Alex Ochoa and Garret Anderson had two hits and two RBIs each.

Angels starter John Lackey improved to 6-3 after giving up two runs and seven hits in 6 1/3 innings, getting relief help from Brendan Donnelly and Ben Weber (6th save).

Despite the win, the Angels remained three games out in the A.L. West behind Oakland, which won its 14th consecutive game. The Angels stayed one-half game ahead of Seattle in the wild-card standings.

Love to hear what you think!
