Angels Walk Off On Hit-By-Pitch Drawn By Conger In 11th, Beat Mets 5-4
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Hank Conger was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the 11th inning after rookie Jeurys Familia intentionally walked the previous two batters, and the Los Angeles Angels got home runs from Mike Trout and J.B. Shuck in a 5-4 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night.
Raul Ibanez led off the 11th with a single against Familia (0-2), who was working his third inning of relief. Ibanez advanced on a wild pitch and went to third on a grounder to shortstop by David Freese before Mets manager Terry Collins ordered Familia to walk Howie Kendrick and Shuck to set up a force at any base.
The strategy backfired when Familia plunked Conger with a 2-2 delivery.
Michael Kohn (1-0) pitched a perfect inning for the win.
