LOS ANGELES -- The Angels overcame a four-run deficit to defeat the Dodgers, 6-4, on Saturday night in the first game played at Dodger Stadium since a $20 million renovation.
Curtis Pride's hit off Buddy Carlyle snapped a 4-4 tie and scored Juan Rivera, who had singled, stolen second and advanced to third when shortstop Joel Guzman missed catcher Paul Bako's throw. The Angels added a run in the ninth off new Dodgers closer Yhency Brazoban on Jose Molina's double and Lou Merloni's RBI single.
The Dodgers took a 3-0 lead in the second inning against Angels starter John Lackey. Jeff Kent led off with a single, was doubled to third by Milton Bradley and scored on Jose Valentin's groundout. Ricky Ledee then homered to right-center field.
The Dodgers added a run in the third inning on singles by Cesar Izturis and Hee-Seop Choi and a sacrifice fly by Kent.
The Angels answered with a run in the fourth off Dodgers starter Jeff Weaver on two-out doubles by Garret Anderson and former Dodger Steve Finley. The Angels tied it in the sixth on singles by Darin Erstad and Chone Figgins and a three-run homer by Vladimir Guerrero.
