BARCELONA, Spain -- Two goals by Victor Sanchez and one by Sergio Garcia gave Espanyol a thrilling 3-2 home win against Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish league on Monday. Authentic Trevor Lewis Jersey . Espanyol midfielder Sanchez intercepted Bilbao goalkeeper Gorka Iraizozs clearance and, having spotted a gap, risked using his less-favoured left foot to fire a beautifully precise long-range shot that bounced in from high up the near post in the 24th minute. "I dont think Ive ever scored a goal like that," Sanchez said. "We were lucky enough to be able to score first and finish the match with a win. We are a united team and thats the image that should be taken away from this match." Bilbao intercepted Espanyols attack, quickly passed the ball to Benat Etxebarria who found Mikel Rico racing up the right flank, crossing precisely for Oscar de Marcos to score from the middle of the box in the 43rd. Sanchez added a second goal in the 49th after a complex sequence of one-touch passes placed the ball precisely onto his right foot. As Espanyol surged forward, Iraizoz saved three shots on goal in rapid succession only to have the fourth bounce off him into goal after Sergio Garcias close-range shot in the 66th. Bilbao has not won at the Cornella stadium in 15 years. We found it hard to get into the match, Espanyol tends to pressure you well, especially at the beginning of matches," said Bilbao forward Iker Muniain. "We were on the brink of equalizing at the end, but weve got another match Thursday so its time to think about that." Atletico Madrid shares the league lead with Barcelona on a perfect 15 points after five matches. Espanyol is fifth on 11 and Bilbao sixth on nine.

David Freese and Brennan Boesch homered for the big league-leading Angels (94-56), who reduced their magic number to three in the AL West race with their 11th victory in 12 games. Los Angeles is assured of at least a wild card berth in its first post-season since 2009. Albert Pujols left the game in the third inning with a left hamstring cramp after hitting a three-run double off Hisashi Iwakuma (14-8) for Los Angeles first runs. The Mariners (80-69) dropped two games behind Kansas City for the second AL wild card spot with their fifth loss in six games. Shoemaker (16-4), who turns 28 next weekend, improved his own franchise record for rookie victories with his ninth win in 11 appearances since July 26. He pitched seven shutout innings and didnt allow a runner to reach third base before Logan Morrison doubled and scored on two groundouts in the eighth. Manager Mike Scioscia and the Angels training staff came out to check on Shoemaker before he left after 7 2-3 innings. Tony Campana had a two-run single and Howie Kendrick had an RBI double in the Angels 17th win in 20 games. Iwakuma couldnt get out of the fourth inning of his first career loss to the Angels, yielding six hits and seven runs. Authentic Rogie Vachon Jersey. Humberto Quintero drove in Seattles only run. Iwakumas career-long dominance of the Angels (5-0, 1.64 ERA) abruptly ended after he retired Los Angeles first eight batters. The Japanese right-hander, who walked just 16 batters in his first 176 innings this season, walked Efren Navarro and Mike Trout with two outs in the third before Pujols cleared the bases with a shot down the left-field line. Pujols held his hamstring while jogging slowly into second as Trout slid under the cutoff throw at home, but the three-time NL MVP left the game walking easily. The speedy Campana replaced Pujols and scored on Kendricks double. After Freese crushed his ninth homer to centre in the fourth, the Angels loaded the bases for Campana, who delivered his first RBIs for his new team. Boeschs first homer for the Angels put them up 8-0 in the fifth. TRAINERS ROOM Mariners: Dustin Ackley returned to left field after missing six of the last seven games with a left ankle injury. He left in the sixth inning. Angels: Josh Hamiltons injured right shoulder felt strong after three rounds of batting practice. The cleanup hitter might return as soon as Wednesday. UP NEXT After three consecutive wins with their bullpen filling injured Garrett Richards rotation spot, the Angels will try it again, starting with reliever Cory Rasmus (3-1, 2.80).
