ANAHEIM http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-russell-martin-jersey , Calif. (AP) — Jose Briceno’s extra-inning homer with the frenzied enthusiasm of a team barreling toward the playoffs, not a team that needs a six-game winning streak this week just to finish at .500.Although the Angels are staying home for yet another October, they’re looking to build for next season with small successes — and big celebrations, apparently.Briceno delivered a pinch-hit homer leading off the 11th inning, and the Angels snapped their five-game skid with a 5-4 victory over the Texas Rangers on Monday night.Shohei Ohtani hit his 21st homer in the first inning and Michael Hermosillo added his first career homer as the Angels opened the final homestand of their fourth consecutive season out of the playoffs.After Taylor Cole (3-2) retired the Rangers in the 11th, Briceno drilled an 0-2 pitch from Matt Moore (3-8) to center for his fifth career homer. It was the Angels’ first walk-off homer by a pinch-hitter since Scott Spiezio did it in 2000.After improving to 76-81, the Angels were ready to party: Briceno’s teammates ripped his jersey off his back, tore his undershirt and repeatedly pelted him with rosin and liquids when he reached home plate.“Yeah, I didn’t know what was going on around me, so I just tried to close my eyes,” Briceno said with a grin.After a 1-5 road trip that included four straight humiliating blowout losses, the Angels returned home with a four-homer performance and a strong start from Felix Pena. The 28-year-old former Cubs reliever yielded five hits over seven innings and struck out six, continuing his improbable rise as a starter in the Angels’ injury-plagued rotation by matching the longest appearance of his career.Angels rookie Ty Buttrey was one out away from his fifth career save Josh Donaldson Jersey , but after Ronald Guzman doubled with two outs in the ninth, pinch-runner Delino DeShields scored the tying run on pinch-hitter Elvis Andrus‘ single to left.Guzman and Jurickson Profar homered for the Rangers, who opened their season-ending road trip with their sixth loss in eight games.“I thought it was a really well-played game,” Rangers interim manager Don Wakamatsu said. “We talked about playing throughout the rest of the season hard, with some energy, with some personality. We’ve got a lot of bright spots.”Adrian Sampson yielded five hits and four runs while pitching into the sixth for Texas.Two batters after Jefry Marte hit his first homer since Aug. 21 in the fourth inning, Hermosillo got his first career homer — and a big hug from Mike Trout on his way back to the dugout — in his 28th game with the Angels. The 23-year-old outfield prospect made his big-league debut in May, and he said his father already laid claim to his first home run ball in a fortuitously timed text message shortly before this game.Rougned Odor singled in the sixth and scored when Profar’s 19th homer barely cleared the wall in right.Marte was hit by a pitch from Sampson leading off the sixth. He advanced on a balk and a groundout before scoring the go-ahead run on Connor Sadzeck’s wild pitch.NUMBER 21Ohtani hit a 428-foot shot to right field in the first inning, interrupting a 3-for-22 slump with another superlative blast by the Angels’ two-way sensation. He has five homers while batting .327 against Texas this season. He also hit into two double plays and struck out, but his 21 homers are fourth-most among AL rookies.FREE PASSESTrout went 1 for 3 with two strikeouts, but drew his 116th and 117th walks of the season to set a franchise record, surpassing his mark in 2016.SCIOSCIA’S FUTUREBefore the game, Angels manager Mike Scioscia told the team-owned radio station that he would like to manage again next year. Scioscia is finishing his 19th season in the Angels’ dugout Joe Carter Jersey , and his contract expires this year. He has been widely expected to step down when the season concludes, but Scioscia sounded open to returning or to managing elsewhere in the majors.TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: Andrelton Simmons wasn’t in the starting lineup due to a sore knee, but he worked out on the field. The star shortstop landed awkwardly while fielding Sunday in Houston. … LF Justin Upton got a rest day.UP NEXTRangers: Yovani Gallardo (8-6, 6.59 ERA) is 1-5 in his last seven starts, and he has a 6.91 ERA since the beginning of August.Angels: Matt Shoemaker (2-2, 5.48 ERA) makes the sixth start of his injury-plagued season after getting chased in the third inning of last appearance in Oakland. Aaron Nola will make his final start of the 2018 season on Saturday night in Philadelphia against the Atlanta Braves.The 25-year-old will try to end the best season of his major league career on a high note –and there haven’t been many for the Philadelphia Phillies in recent weeks.Nola (16-6, 2.45 ERA) will face Anibal Sanchez (7-6, 2.96) on the penultimate day of the 2018 regular season.Article continues below ...The division champion Braves are 90-70 after winning the series opener Friday night, and they are fighting for home-field advantage in a National League Division Series.The Phillies (78-82), meanwhile, are 6-20 in September and on a season-worst nine-game losing streak. Their latest loss assured the Phillies — who were in first place in the NL East and 15 games above .500 on Aug. 5 — will finish the season below .500.Nola has struggled a bit in September as well. He has a 4.60 ERA in five starts this month, and nine of the 17 homers he has allowed this season have come during that span. The Phillies have won 21 of Nola’s 32 starts this season, but they are 2-4 in his last six.Nola faced the Braves in a 2-1 Phillies loss to Atlanta last Sunday. He gave up two runs and four hits and struck out six in six innings.“It’s frustrating at times http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-j.a.-happ-jersey , but I think it’s a learning process for us,” Nola told MLB.com after the start about the Phillies’ late-season slide. “I think it’s a big step this year from last year. We had a month last year. I remember we had a month when I feel like we lost every day. But I feel like each year we’re learning more, especially bringing in a lot of new guys this year.“We’re learning more about each other. I just think that’s what baseball is. We’ve just got to stay focused from here on out and try to finish the year strong.”Nola’s 2.45 ERA still ranks second in the NL, and he’ll likely finish in the top three of the league’s Cy Young Award voting.Nola has a 2.96 ERA and a 1-2 record in four starts against the Braves this season. He is 6-3 with a 2.30 ERA and 1.038 WHIP in 11 starts against Atlanta in his career.Sanchez faced Nola and the Phillies last Sunday, allowing one run while throwing five strong innings in his seventh win of the season. Sanchez, a veteran right-hander, is set to be part of the Braves’ rotation in the NLDS. He has allowed one earned run or fewer in six of his last 10 starts. “(Sanchez) has just been huge,” Braves manager Brian Snitker told reporters after Sanchez’s last start. “What a great story that is. You hear in baseball about trending down and all that kind of stuff. As far as a complete pitcher and just knowing what you’re doing and executing pitches, he’s pretty good.”Sanchez is 5-9 with a 4.76 ERA and 1.481 WHIP in 19 career starts against the Phillies. His appearance against the Phillies on Sunday was his only start against Philadelphia this season.
