OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Bobby Abreu homered with one out in the 10th inning and broke up rookie Brett Anderson's bid for a perfect game with a seventh-inning single, leading the Los Angeles Angels over the Oakland Athletics 1-0 on Sunday.

Abreu's two big hits rewarded John Lackey (5-4), who allowed three hits over nine scoreless innings for the Angels - the second time this season he hasn't allowed a run. The veteran right-hander matched Anderson, the A's 21-year-old left-hander who retired the first 20 batters he faced.

Anderson allowed two hits over eight innings, struck out six and didn't allow a walk for the third time while facing just one batter over the minimum.

The time of game - 2 hours, 17 minutes for 10 innings - told the
story of this pitchers' duel.
