ANAHEIM, Calif., May 19 (UPI) -- Adam Riggs' bases-loaded single with one out in the bottom of the 11th inning plated Jeff DaVanon as the Anaheim Angels downed the New York Yankees, 1-0.
Riggs joined the Angels hours after his contract was purchased from Class AAA Salt Lake City to fill the roster spot of injured third baseman Troy Glaus. After going hitless in his first four at-bats, the 31-year-old gave Anaheim its eighth consecutive home win.
After stranding a runner in the 10th, DaVanon and Vladimir Guerrero opened the 11th with singles. Following a sacrifice by Alfredo Amezaga, New York manager Joe Torre elected to intentionally walk Casey Kotchman and bring in the infield and outfield.
Riggs lined an 0-1 pitch from Paul Quantrill over the head of right fielder Gary Sheffield, giving Anaheim a fifth win in its final at-bat.
After Angels starter Aaron Sele went six innings, three relievers held the Yankees to one hit over five frames. Scot Shields (3-0) worked two perfect innings for the win.
