BOSTON -- Garret Anderson homered and drove in four runs, Darin Erstad added four RBIs and the Los Angeles Angels scored 11 times in the final three innings to rally past the Boston Red Sox 13-6 Saturday.

Bartolo Colon (7-3) struck out 11 in six innings, throwing a season-high 119 pitches for the Angels. Anderson's go-ahead, three-run homer capped a four-run seventh and gave him a club-record 990 RBIs.

Kevin Millar hit a pair of solo homers and an RBI double for the Red Sox, but the bullpen couldn't hold a 5-2 lead for Bronson Arroyo.

Anderson went 4-for-6 with a triple, and Adam Kennedy added two doubles after getting a career-high four hits Friday.

Trailing 5-1, the Angels began their comeback in the sixth. Dallas McPherson singled, moved to third on Jeff DaVanon's single and scored on Arroyo's wild pitch.

In the seventh, Red Sox manager Terry Francona went to struggling left-hander Alan Embree (1-3), who retired just one batter and allowed four runs. Erstad's RBI single made it 5-3. Steve Finley followed with a single before Anderson homered into the Red Sox bullpen, chasing Embree.

Colon gave up five runs, 10 hits and one walk before Brendan Donnelly, Scot Shields, and Joel Peralta each worked an inning in relief. One day after blowing a 4-1 lead in the seventh, the Angels' bullpen held Boston to one run over the final three innings.

Erstad's run-scoring single off Mike Timlin in the eighth increased the lead to 7-5. Millar's second homer cut it to 7-6 in the bottom half.

Orlando Cabrera's RBI single, Erstad's two-run single, Finley's two-run triple and Anderson's RBI single broke the game open in the ninth.

Rangers 14, Royals 9

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chan Ho Park earned his 100th major league win, Michael Young got four hits and Texas beat Kansas City to hand the Royals their first loss under new manager Buddy Bell.

The Rangers got home runs from Young, Alfonso Soriano, Rod Barajas and Laynce Nix to end Kansas City's four-game winning streak, its longest since September 2003.

Bell dropped to 4-1 since taking over the worst team in the major leagues on Tuesday.

Young, Barajas and Mark Teixeira each drove in three runs to back Park (6-1), who allowed six runs and 11 hits in five innings to win his sixth straight decision since a loss on April 8. With the game televised live back home, he became the first South Korean pitcher to win 100 games in the majors.

Teixeira reached base five times, including two doubles. The Rangers' 19 hits matched their season high.

Royals right-hander Jose Lima (0-5), winless in 14 starts since Sept. 14, was staked to a 4-0 lead but gave it all back in the third.
