ANAHEIM, Calif., July 5 (UPI) -- Erick Aybar climaxed a three-run, ninth-inning rally with an RBI single Thursday, giving the Los Angeles Angels a 6-5 win over St. Louis.
Los Angeles won for the eighth time in nine games when the Cardinals' Edward Mujica suffered his first blown save of the season in 22 chances.
Mujica (0-1) retired the next two batters to give the Cardinals a chance to get into extra innings, but Aybar singled to center on a 2-1 pitch to bring home Kendrick.
The comeback made a winner out of Scott Downs (2-2), who worked the top of the ninth.
Allen Craig hit a three-run homer in the fourth for the Cardinals.
