Rivera returns from DL, homers in 9th as Angels sweep Padres

SAN DIEGO (AP) In his first game back from a knee injury, Rene Rivera was big trouble for his old team.

Rivera hit a go-ahead homer in the ninth inning after a long stay on the disabled list, and the Los Angeles Angels completed a three-game sweep of the San Diego Padres with a 3-2 victory Wednesday night.

Reinstated from the 60-day DL before the game, Rivera connected for a solo shot into the second deck in left field against San Diego closer Kirby Yates (4-1). The former Padres catcher had missed 76 games with right knee inflammation.
