OAKLAND — The Angels had done everything to finish off a much-needed victory.

And then the bullpen let it get away. Again.

Blake Parker and Cam Bedrosian combined to allow two runs to tie the game in the ninth, and Jake Jewell and Eduardo Paredes gave up a run in the 11th inning of the Angels’ 6-5 loss to the Oakland A’s on Sunday.

It was the third time in four games the Angels had a lead in the sixth inning or later and couldn’t hold it. The Angels’ 15 blown saves are tied for the most in the majors.

Parker got the ball with a 5-3 lead after Andrew Heaney gave up just three hits over eight innings.

Parker gave up a homer to Marcus Semien, the first batter he faced. He then walked Chad Pinder. After a strikeout, pinch-runner Dustin Fowler went to second on a wild pitch. Parker walked Khris Davis, and was then pulled.

Left-hander José Álvarez struck out left-handed hitting Matt Olson, and then the right-handed Bedrosian was summoned to face the right-handed Canha, who dropped a game-tying bloop single into center. Bedrosian got out of the ninth and the 10th.

In the 11th, Jewell entered for his second big league appearance, a day after his debut. He gave up a leadoff single to Lowrie and then hit Davis. Lowrie took third on a fly ball.

Paredes then entered and walked Canha, to load the bases. Jonathan Lucroy got the game winning hit with a drive into the Angels’ two-man outfield.

It spoiled a solid performance by Heaney, whose only hiccup came when he gave up a two-run homer to Canha in the second inning. After that, he retired 13 of the next 14. He gave up a run in the seventh on a Lowrie double and two fly balls.

Heaney bounced back to finish with three straight strikeouts in the eighth, ending his day at 106 pitches.

The Angels had erased the Canha homer in the third.

Chris Young hit his third homer in the last four games. After a pair of two-out walks to Mike Trout and Justin Upton, Pujols hit a liner into center that just slipped out of the glove of the diving Canha, allowing a run.

Pujols put the Angels on top with a homer in the sixth, his 11th of the season and 625th of his career.

The Angels got another run later in the inning when Andrelton Simmons scored on a wild pitch. In the seventh, a single by Upton drove in Ian Kinsler, who had led off with a double.

Trout reached base five times, for the 10th time in his career. He had two singles, two walks (one intentional) and he was hit by a pitch.
