Final Score in Florida: Angels 4, Rays 3

Brandon Wood hit a no-doubt solo homerun off of Dan Wheeler in the top of the 9th inning to break a 3-3 tie and help the ESPN dream of the Yankees and Red Sox appearing in the playoffs as the Angels beat the Tampa Bay Rays. While reliever Michael Kohn was the pitcher of record when the HR was hit and got the win, it was Dan Haren's night with 10 striekouts and only 3 hits, the biggest blow being a triple to Carl Crawford that was a catchable flyball misplayed by a waddling Bobby Abreu, who was central to the Angels offense in their two-run third inning, driving in a run and scoring right afterwards.

Fernando Rodney picked up his 11th Save as an Angel.
