ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Hank Conger homered and nifty baserunning by Vernon Wells helped the Los Angeles Angels rally from a five-run deficit to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 on Sunday.

Angels ace Jered Weaver (6-0) was scratched from his scheduled start because of a stomach virus. Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia hopes Weaver will be able to pitch Monday night at Boston.

Los Angeles went ahead 6-5 in the eighth thanks in part to Wells, who drew a one-out walk from Joel Peralta (1-1) with Torii Hunter on third.

Wells slowed up on Conger’s grounder and forced second baseman Ben Zobrist to throw to first for an out.

Wells then prolonged a rundown long enough for Hunter to score.
