Figgins Fuels Angels' 4-3 Win Over Twins

It's not always speed that kills. Sometimes, the mere threat of it can maim, as was evident in the 11th inning Monday night when Minnesota reliever Jesse Crain, preoccupied with Chone Figgins at first base, bounced a pickoff throw into foul territory, allowing the Angels leadoff batter to race to third with no outs.

Orlando Cabrera grounded Crain's next pitch, a two-strike sinker, through the shortstop hole of a drawn-in infield to drive in Figgins and give the Angels their second walk-off and first extra-inning victory of the season, a 4-3 win over the Twins at Angel Stadium that moved the Angels into third place in the American League West.
