The ball blooped into short center field late in the night, carrying with it the remains of a six-game losing streak. With one flick of C.J. Cron's bat, the Angels avoided their longest losing streak in six years.
It fell to the grass at Safeco Field, and the Angels had their win.
“I didn't get much of it,” Cron said. “But I got enough.”
They came from four runs behind to beat Seattle, 7-6, on Friday, one night after they came from five runs behind to put the winning run on base but failed to complete the comeback against St. Louis.
