Lovullo's Drought Ends in the 14th, 3-2 : Baseball: After stranding eight baserunners, his single over a drawn in infield finally puts away the Yankees.

From Associated Press

Torey Lovullo singled over a drawn-in outfield with one out and the bases loaded in the 14th inning Sunday, giving the Angels a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees.

Lovullo, who stranded eight runners in the game, lofted a fly ball to center field against Paul Gibson after the Yankees walked Tim Salmon and Chili Davis intentionally to load the bases.

Luis Polonia led off the 14th with a single against Rich Monteleone (5-4), took second on a wild pitch and went to third on Chad Curtis' infield grounder. Salmon and Davis then were walked, and Gibson came on to face Lovullo.

Doug Linton (2-1), the fourth Angel pitcher, retired all three men he faced in the 14th.

The Yankees finished their 10-game road trip with a 2-8 record, although they held the lead at one point in seven of the eight losses.

The Angels got a runner to third base in the 10th, 11th and 13th innings, but each time the New York bullpen stranded him there.

The Angels, blanked on one hit by Jim Abbott through five innings, broke through in the sixth on consecutive singles by Curtis, Salmon and Davis. The Angels tied the score, 2-2, in the eighth when Damion Easley doubled and scored on Gary DiSarcina's single.
