Maicer Izturis hit a two out single that scored Peter Bourjos from 2B with a slide just ahead of the tag at home in the bottom of the 14th inning to record the first home win of 2011 for the Angels.
The Angels bullpen pitched 9 and one-third innings of scoreless baseball, bit at some point, a team has to score runs to finish the thing. With less than thirteen hours to go before their matinee game tomorrow, the Angels won Saturday night's game in the 14th inning.
Matt Palmer allowed 5 runs 4 and two-thirds IP in a spot start for "injured" Scott Kazmir. Rich Thompson took over in the fifth inning and the Blue Jays never scored again. Problem is, the Angels looked like they might not ever either. The Halos ran themselves out of the twelfth and thirteenth innings and blew a 2B/3B no out 11th inning as well.
Dan Haren got the win with an inning of relief, making his first appearance as a non-starter since October of 2004 when he was with the St. Louis Cardinals.
