Angels Vs. Rays Final Score: Halos Hang On For 3-1 Win

Just a short while after the news broke that the Los Angeles Angels had acquired Zack Greinke on Friday, the Halos picked up a big series-opening win over the visiting Tampa Bay Rays. Dan Haren had another strong start since being activated from the disabled list and the Angels hung on to win by a final score of 3-1.

Jeff Keppinger hit a home run in the top of the second to get Tampa Bay up 1-0 early, but the bottom of the third was the big inning for the Angels. The inning ended up decided the game, as the Angels scored all three of their runs on a double from Albert Pujols and a single from Mark Trumbo.

The Angels gained a game in the standings with the win and, along with the Oakland Athletics, are just 4.5 games behind the Texas Rangers in the American League West.

Haren went six innings, giving up one run on five hits and a walk. He moved back to 8-8. Ernesto Frieri picked up his 12 save with a perfect ninth inning.
