ATLANTA (AP) — Kole Calhoun’s bases-loaded single in the 13th inning drove in the go-ahead run and the Los Angeles Angels recovered after blowing a four-run lead in the ninth to beat the Atlanta Braves 11-6 Saturday night.

Mike Trout and Albert Pujols each had three hits, including homers, and drove in four runs.

Erick Aybar led off the 13th with his fourth hit, an infield single, and moved to second on catcher Gerald Laird’s passed ball. David Hale (2-1) walked pinch-hitter C.J. Wilson and hit Chris Iannetta with a pitch to load the bases.

Calhoun’s soft fly ball fell just in front of center fielder B.J. Upton, who attempted a sliding catch. Trout’s two-run double and Pujols’ two-run single pushed the lead to five runs.

The teams combined to use 16 pitchers as the game lasted almost 5 hours.

Fernando Salas (4-0) pitched two scoreless innings.
