ANAHEIM, Calif., July 28 (UPI) -- Garret Anderson's three-run homer highlighted a seven-run eighth inning Saturday afternoon as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim beat Detroit, 10-3.
Tigers' Manager Jim Leyland questioned the call on Anderson's homer -- arguing that a fan interfered -- but the call stood and the home run put the Angels up, 6-3. LA went on to score four more runs in the inning.
Angels' starter Joe Saunders pitched 5 1/3 innings, giving up three runs on eight hits, with one walk and four strikeouts.
Scot Shields (3-3) picked up the victory with a hitless eighth in relief.
Tigers' starter Andrew Miller gave up two runs on five hits, with four walks and four strikeouts in five-plus innings.
