Dodgers rally for win over cross-town rivalsLOS ANGELES - Comeback wins haven’t come easily to the Dodgers, who had dropped four one-run games in a row.
They staged their biggest rally of the season Monday night, overcoming a five-run deficit to beat the Los Angeles Angels, 8-7, in the Freeway Series opener.
“It can definitely be a momentum builder, but you can’t have momentum unless you come out tomorrow and play hard,” said Adrian Gonzalez, who had a season-high four hits and tied his career high with four runs scored.
Jerry Hairston Jr.’s RBI single scored the go-ahead run in the seventh inning to help the Dodgers snap the Angels’ season-high eight-game winning streak in the first of two games at Dodger Stadium before the series shifts to Anaheim for two more. AP
