LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Former Angel Juan Rivera hit a three-run home run and Andre Ethier added his 500th career RBI in the eighth inning, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers rally to beat the Angels 5-2 Tuesday night and end their 10-game road winning streak.

Jamey Wright (3-2) pitched a perfect eighth inning for the victory. Kenley Jansen retired the side in order in the ninth to earn his 10th save in 13 opportunities.

Ethier’s run-scoring single tied the game 2-2 hours after the right fielder received an $85 million, five-year contract from the team. Angels pitching coach Mike Butcher visited the mound before Rivera drove Jerome Williams’ next pitch to left field for a 5-2 lead. It was Williams’ 102nd and final pitch.
