ANAHEIM, Calif. — Alberto Callaspo’s teammates chased him from first base into left field while fireworks exploded above Angel Stadium, smacking the pinch-hitting hero on his back until he was sore.

“I was hurt,” Callaspo said with a grin. “That’s OK. I’d take 20 like that.”

The Los Angeles Angels are getting pretty good at celebrations during a 13-3 surge that gets them closer to the postseason with each big finish.

Callaspo drove home pinch-runner Peter Bourjos with a two-out single in the ninth inning, and the Angels beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 Friday night for their ninth win in 10 games.

Kendrys Morales had a triple, a double and a one-out single that started the ninth-inning rally for the Angels, who moved just two games behind Baltimore in the AL wild-card race.
