Pearce hits walk-off slam for Blue Jays

The Star Democrat - - SPORTS -

TORONTO (TNS) — The An­gels pounded lack­lus­ter Toronto pitch­ing on Sun­day af­ter­noon at the Rogers Cen­tre. But their own poor pitch­ing squan­dered their chance at a rare se­ries sweep. The An­gels blew a six-run ninthin­ning lead to lose, 11-10, on a walk-off grand slam.

Steve Pearce hit it off Bud Nor­ris, the An­gels’ closer. Im­prob­a­bly, both men had also been in­volved in a walk-off slam within the last week: Nor­ris sur­ren­dered one Tues­day against Cleve­land while Pearce clubbed one Thurs­day.

The An­gels (51-55) had not lost a game they led by three runs all sea­son. They are off to­day, the day of base­ball’s an­nual non-waiver trade dead­line.
