A’s Score 3 In The Eighth To Beat Angels 3-2

By MICHAEL WAGAMAN, Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Joey Wendle hit a go-ahead single during a three-run eighth inning and the Oakland Athletics rallied to beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 on Tuesday night.

The A’s didn’t have a hit or a baserunner until one out in the sixth inning before their first five batters in the eighth reached.

Ryon Healy, whose single broke up starter Ricky Nolasco’s bid for a perfect game, hit an RBI single before Wendle lined a hit to right to drive in pinch-runner Arismendy Alcantara and Marcus Semien.

It was just the third career hit for Wendle, who was making his fourth start at second base after being called up from the minors on Aug. 31.

John Axford (5-4) pitched two innings to get the win. Ryan Madsen retired three hitters for his 28th save.

Los Angeles wasted a mostly strong outing by Nolasco (5-13).
