Angels 2, Tigers 1

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Third baseman David Freese hit a solo home run in the eighth inning to give Los Angeles a victory over Detroit.

Freese broke a 1-1 tie by hitting a fastball from right-handed reliever Joba Chamberlain (1-4) over the center field fence for his sixth homer of the season and his second of the 10-game homestand.

Los Angeles right-hander Joe Smith (4-0) induced groundouts from all three batters he faced in the top of the eighth. Right-handed closer Huston Street earned his third save since coming from the San Diego Padres in a six-player trade July 18.
