ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — C.J. Cron ended the game with his second homer, and the Los Angeles Angels blew a seven-run lead before rallying for an 11-9 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.

Cron’s two-run shot to left against Mark Lowe (1-3) was the ninth homer of the game in a park that isn’t known for power hitting, particularly at night. Cron also homered in the first inning of the Angels’ 17-hit performance during their ninth consecutive home victory over the Tigers.

Ian Kinsler hit a grand slam in the seventh before Victor Martinez’s solo shot tied it in the eighth for the Tigers, who rallied from a 9-2 deficit in the sixth inning.

Mike Trout hit a three-run homer and Cron drove in five runs for the Angels.
