Recap: LA Angels vs. NY Mets

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Hank Conger took one for the team on Friday.

With the bases loaded in the 11th inning, Conger took a Jeurys Familia fastball off his right rib cage to force in Raul Ibanez and give the Angels a 5-4 victory over the New York Mets.

Ibanez opened the deciding frame with a single to right and moved to second when Familia (0-2), in his third inning of relief, uncorked a wild pitch.

"Familia has been pitching well," said Mets catcher Travis D'Arnaud. "It was a fastball that he pulled across his body too much. He just tugged it."

Ibanez alertly advanced to third ahead of David Freese's slow-rolling groundout to short, and a pair of intentional walks set the stage for Conger.

"I was trying to look for something to hit, and it caught me in the ribs," said Conger. "I heard the crowd scream, and I just ran to first base. My first walk-off."

The Angels, who stranded 14 runners over the first 10 innings, received a solo homer from Mike Trout and a tying two-run blast from J.B. Shuck in the sixth.

Angels relievers retired the final 12 New York hitters, with Michael Kohn (1-0) tossing a perfect 11th to earn the win.

Josh Satin recorded a two-run double and d'Arnaud had a solo homer for the Mets, who were coming off a series win in Atlanta.

Both starters gave up four runs in their outings, with Tyler Skaggs giving up nine hits over seven innings for the Angels and Dillon Gee yielding six hits and four walks before being pulled with two outs in the sixth.

Eric Young and Daniel Murphy each singled to start the game, and the Mets only got one run out of it when David Wright bounced into a double play.

Trout hammered one over the wall in left-center in the bottom half, and d'Arnaud hit one to roughly the same spot to open the third.

Chris Iannetta's two-out, RBI single in the second had given the Angels the lead, and Satin put the Mets in front in the fourth when he found the gap in left to bring home Andrew Brown and Curtis Granderson.

Gee was cruising along until issuing a walk to Howie Kendrick in the sixth, then he caught too much of the plate on an inside fastball to Shuck, who turned on it and found the seats just inside the right-field foul pole.

Albert Pujols grounded out harmlessly to third to leave the bases loaded in the home eighth, and left two on in the 10th with a chopper back to the mound.
