Angels Edge The Mets 4-3

NEW YORK (AP) — Peter Bourjos hit a tiebreaking double and turned in a sensational catch to help Joel Pineiro nail down his 100th major league win at last in the Los Angeles Angels’ 4-3 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night.

Hard-throwing rookie Jordan Walden walked his first two batters in the ninth inning, then struck out the next three to hold on.

Torii Hunter had three hits, including an RBI single, while Maicer Izturis and Howie Kendrick each scored twice. The Angels, who had lost seven of 10, used some slick defense to improve to 27-10 in interleague road games since 2007 — the best mark in the majors.

Los Angeles has won 28 of its last 40 overall against National League teams.
