GAME 66 - ANGELS AT DODGERS
LOS ANGELES – A Tim Salmon home run helped push the Angels to an early lead, but Jarrod Washburn gave up back-to-back home runs in the sixth and the Dodgers rallied for a 5-4 victory before 52,183 at Dodger Stadium.
Salmon’s two-run homer in the fourth inning off Dodgers starter Hideo Nomo gave the Angels a 2-0 lead. After the Dodgers scored in the bottom of the fourth, the Angels added two more on an RBI triple by Adam Kennedy and a successful squeeze bunt by David Eckstein to go up 4-1.
But Washburn surrendered a two-run homer to Eric Karros and a solo homer to Marquis Grissom to allow the Dodgers to get even.
Angels reliever Al Levine gave up an RBI single to Mark Grudzielanek in the seventh inning, which proved to be the difference. With the loss, the Angels missed another chance to catch the Mariners for the A.L. West lead.
