LOS ANGELES (AP) - Playing through an earthquake that was felt in the ballpark, the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Angels 5-4 in 10 innings Friday night after rookie Joc Pederson hit a tying home run in the eighth.
Pinch-hitter Darnell Sweeney won it with an RBI single in the 10th inning against Jeremy Berg, evening the Freeway Series at a game apiece just hours after the Angels signed Mike Trout to a $144.5 million, six-year contract.
A magnitude-5.1 earthquake was felt inside Chavez Ravine and surrounding counties at approximately 9:11 p.m., just as A.J. Ellis was batting in the Dodgers' sixth inning. The epicenter was about 20 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles in Brea, a short hop down the 57 Freeway to Angel Stadium.
