ANAHEIM -- It's no secret that the Tampa Bay Rays came into Monday's game struggling.
While the Rays had lost 11 of their last 16 games and 14 of their last 19 at Angel Stadium, the team bounced back to get a much needed win, beating the Angels, 5-1, in front of 32,287.
The Rays also improved to 17-13 on the road this season, the second-best record in the American League.

SAN FRANCISCO --  Freddy Sanchez savored the moment. He thrives in pressure situations. Yet he still took the time to acknowledge the bullpen.
Sanchez, who had two hits, singled in the bottom of the 13th inning to lift the San Francisco Giants to yet another improbable comeback, beating the Washington Nationals, 5-4, Monday night after trailing by four runs entering the seventh.
"The bullpen was remarkable, like always," Sanchez said. "They came in and did their job. That's not easy when the game is that tight. They gave us the chance to pull it out."
