ANAHEIM, Calif. - Howie Kendrick knows how difficult it is to hit home runs at Angel Stadium at night. Two of his drives against Nick Martinez didnt make it past the warning track. Kendrick got another chance in the 10th inning and hit an RBI double to give Los Angeles a 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night. Josh Hamilton started the rally with an infield single against Neal Cotts (2-4), and Kendrick greeted Jason Frasor with a drive to the fence in left-centre on a 3-2 pitch with the runner going. "Right there, I was just trying to stay honest. I didnt know whether he was going to throw me a fastball or not, because hes got a split also," Kendrick said. "So I was just trying to see the ball up. They were playing me to the opposite field, so there was a big gap in left-centre. I put a good swing on it and hit it in the right spot." Mike Morin (1-1) pitched one inning for his first major league victory, striking out three and hitting a batter. Jered Weaver allowed a run and four hits through eight innings, struck out five and walked two. The three-time All-Star left with a 2-1 lead after C.J. Crons leadoff homer in the eighth, but Kevin Jepsen promptly surrendered a home run to centre field by Shin-Soo Choo on his second pitch in the ninth. Jepsen, who has only three saves in six full big-league seasons, was given the chance to close by manager Mike Scioscia just two days after Ernesto Frieri gave up a walkoff grand slam to Clevelands Nick Swisher in the 10th inning of a 5-3 loss. Cam Bedrosian, who took the loss in that game, was optioned to Double-A Arkansas before Saturdays contest after giving up nine runs, eight hits and seven walks in 5 2-3 innings over his first six big-league appearances. Nick Martinez allowed two runs and three hits in seven-plus innings after retiring his first 15 batters. The 23-year-old right-hander gave a needed boost to a beleaguered pitching staff that had surrendered 10 or more hits in six straight games — the teams longest such streak since a nine-game stretch in August 2008. Martinez recorded 10 of his first 15 outs on fly balls — including two by Kendrick that were caught on the warning track — and another deep drive by Cron. "Thats the nature of this ballpark. You love it and hate it, but its not going to change for me or anybody else," Kendrick said. "Ive been playing here for a while, so you come to expect those things sometimes. The biggest thing is just going up there and trying to put good at-bats together and put good swings on the ball." Hank Conger broke up Martinezs perfect string with an opposite-field double into the left-field corner on a 2-1 count leading off the sixth and scored on a groundout by Efren Navarro that tied it 1-all. "Martinez threw a heck of a game on their side. I didnt know if we were going to get to him or not, but we were able to squeak one across," Weaver said. Weaver pitched with runners on base in four of the first five innings and didnt get his first strikeout until fanning Brad Snyder to open the fifth. Designated hitter Alex Rios, who came in 4 for 25 against the right-hander, led off the second with a double and was stranded at third when Robinson Chrinos popped out and Michael Choice grounded out. Choo led off the fourth with a grounder toward the hole that went under second baseman Kendricks glove for an error, but he kept going and was thrown out by right fielder Kole Calhoun. "If he gets to second there, that would have made all the difference in the game. So for Kole to come up with a big play there was huge," Weaver said. "Hes scrappy and he plays with a lot of emotion on his sleeve, and hes shown what hes capable of doing — not only on the offensive side but the defensive side as well." Adrian Beltre followed with a single and was erased on a double-play grounder by Rios, who got into an argument with umpire Vic Carapazza about a previous pitch that was called a strike and was ejected. Donnie Murphy replaced him as the designated hitter. Carapazza also ejected Choice in the 10th for arguing balls and strikes after taking back-to-back pitches that appeared to be out of the zone. That ran Texass season total to six ejections. "Hes got a quick trigger finger. He needs to settle down a little bit," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "This is the big leagues. Theres going to be some tension flying around, and hes got to be able to deal with some of that. People are out there competing. Hes got to have some patience. Hes got to control himself. Its ridiculous." NOTES: Weaver ended a career-worst streak in which he had allowed a home run in seven consecutive starts. ... Angels 1B Albert Pujols missed the game due to pain in his lower back.

And though his comeback night didnt quite go to script, Bryant couldnt help reflecting on the work necessary to get back on that court -- and all the months of steady labour ahead to reclaim his game. Bryant had nine points and eight rebounds in his season debut, but Amir Johnson scored a career-high 32 points in the trade-depleted Toronto Raptors 106-94 victory over Los Angeles on Sunday night.TORONTO, Ontario -- As the captain of the Hamilton Bulldogs, Martin St. Pierre relishes the opportunity to be the go-to guy. St. Pierre scored twice, including the game winner, as the Bulldogs edged the host Toronto Marlies 2-1 on Saturday in American Hockey League action. It was the Bulldogs second win in five meetings with the Marlies this season but its first against Toronto in regulation time. "Weve had some troubles winning games in this building," St. Pierre said about the Ricoh Coliseum. "Weve played well. Its good to get contributions from every body and get the two points in this building." The win puts Hamilton in a three-way tie with Toronto and Lake Erie atop the North Division standings. St. Pierre scored his fifth and sixth goals of the season to give Hamilton (11-10-3) a 2-0 lead. But Korbinian Holzer responded for the Marlies (12-9-1) at 17:44 of the second period to cut the Bulldogs lead in half. "Marty bounced back. I dont think he liked his game last night (in Lake Erie)," said Bulldogs head coach, Sylvain Lefebvre. "He bounced back with two big goals tonight." Toronto had an excellent chance to tie it with 3:22 remaining in the third with Nick Tarnasky off for high sticking. Kevin Marshall had the Marlies best chance with the mman advantage, but his shot from the top of the face-off circle sailed over the crossbar.dddddddddddd. "It couldve (been costly) and thats what makes our team," said Lefebvre of the late penalty. "The other guys wanted to bail guys out and thats what makes a winning team. Youre there for one another and you care for one another." Drew MacIntyre made 21 saves for just his second loss on home ice this season. Robert Mayer made 22 saves in the win. St. Pierre one-timed a Mike Blunden feed past a sprawling MacIntyre for his first goal of the game at 11:52 of the first period. Then at 1:02 of the second, St. Pierre put home a no-look feed from Christian Thomas. The goal marked St. Pierres team-leading 22nd point of the season. "We knew we had to get a good dump-in and work their defence," St. Pierre said of the game-winner. "It was a great forecheck by Patrick Holland and a great pass by Thomas." Holzer beat Mayer from a sharp angle for his second goal of the season with Hamiltons Tarnasky off serving a double minor for butt-ending Jamie Devane at 15:59 of the second period. Toronto went 1 for 5 with the man advantage while Hamilton scored on 1 of 3 power play opportunities.
