By  | 

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Pinch-hitter Nomar Garciaparra, Mark Ellis and Matt Holliday hit RBI singles with two outs in the ninth inning off new Angels closer Brian Fuentes, rallying the Oakland Athletics over Los Angeles 6-4 Wednesday night.

The A's trailed 4-0 before scoring three runs in the eighth inning and three more in the ninth.

A two-out trickler by Kurt Suzuki up the first-base line that went for an infield hit set up Oakland's comeback in the ninth off Fuentes (0-1).

Rookie reliever Andrew Bailey (1-0) earned his first major league victory with a hitless eighth inning and Brad Ziegler got three outs for his second save.
