Tampa Bay Rays

Rays drop another one, fall to Angels

Vladimir Guerrero homered twice, including the 400th of his career to put the Angels ahead in the seventh inning, Kendry Morales also hit two homers, and the Los Angeles Angels went on to an 8-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night.

Guerrero extended his hitting streak to a season-high 12 games a week after coming off the disabled list for the second time this season. He is one of seven active major leaguers with 400 homers and 2,000 hits.

The Angels rallied four times before putting away the Rays, who fell to 8-15 overall against the AL West and 3-13 on the road.

Tampa Bay got homers from Jason Bartlett, who fell a single short of hitting for the cycle, and Carlos Pena in losing its second straight.
