DETROIT – David Eckstein and Shawn Wooten each had four hits, Brad Fullmer and Troy Glaus homered and the Angels beat the Detroit Tigers, 6-3, in a rainout makeup game before 18,546 at Comerica Park.

The win moved the Angels to within 2 ½ games of Seattle in the A.L. West.

Angels starter John Lackey (3-2) gave up three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings to get the victory, and Troy Percival pitched a scoreless ninth for his 26th save.

Lackey gave up all three runs in the third inning as the Tigers took a 3-2 lead. But the Angels scored once in the fourth to tie the game, then went ahead for good when Fullmer and Glaus hit back-to-back solo homers in the fifth.

Love to hear what you think!
