Angels use 6-run ninth to rally for 10-6 win over Astros

Yunel Escobar hit a two-run homer and pinch-hitter Rafael Ortega had three RBIs during a six-run ninth inning, lifting the Los Angeles Angels over the Houston Astros 10-6 on Friday night.

Houston fell 2 1/2 games behind the Tigers for the second AL wild card.

Houston led 6-4 when Escobar sent a slider from Ken Giles (2-5) into the seats in left field to start the ninth. Giles walked Mike Trout with one out before intentionally walking Albert Pujols. C.J. Cron followed with a bloop single to score Trout and put the Angels on top.

Giles was replaced by Michael Feliz after loading the bases with a walk. Ortega cleared the bases with his two-out single, which deflected off shortstop Carlos Correa's glove to extend the lead.

Cody Ege (1-0) got the last two outs of the eighth inning for the win.
