MILWAUKEE (AP) Pinch-hitter Hank Conger came through with a two-run homer in the ninth inning off closer Jim Henderson that sent the Los Angeles Angels to a 6-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.

Milwaukee had been 50-0 this season when leading after eight innings, the only team in the majors without a loss.

Henderson (3-4) retired his first two batters in the ninth before pinch-hitter Josh Hamilton doubled off the glove of sliding right fielder Caleb Gindle. Conger followed with his seventh home run, driving a 2-1 delivery to right.

Dane Da La Rosa (6-1) pitched a perfect eighth for the win. Ernesto Frieri worked the ninth for his 29th save in 33 chances.
