ANAHEIM, Calif., June 19 (UPI) -- A two-out homer by Damion Easley in the 10th inning Wednesday lifted the New York Mets to a comeback, 5-4 win over the Los Angeles Angels.
New York gave up the lead when the Angels scored three times in the fifth and the Mets faced a one-run deficit heading into the ninth.
The Mets, however, came up with a run against Francisco Rodriguez, who blew a save opportunity for only the second time this year. Rodriguez has earned a save in 28 of the Angels' 43 wins.
Rodriguez gave up a one-out single to Jose Reyes in the ninth and Reyes moved to second on a wild pitch before scoring the tying run on a two-out single from David Wright.
Justin Speier (0-4) came on to pitch the 10th for the Angels and he gave up Easley's homer to left on a 1-0 pitch.
Duaner Sanchez (3-0) worked the bottom of the ninth to get the win and Billy Wagner came on in the 10th for his 16th save.
