Thousands of marchers are expected to protest the death of an unarmed black man who was placed in a chokehold by a white New York police officer.
In a confrontation captured on cell phone video, Garner, who is black, was placed in a chokehold — an illegal tactic — by a white officer and can be heard screaming "I can't breathe!" as he was forced to the ground.
Kole Calhoun hit the ball hard to places normally left unintended that turned into outs, including one huge double play.
Jason Grilli, who has been effective out of the bullpen, gave up two runs in the sixth inning that led to the Angels dropping the opener, 5-3 to the Oakland Athletics, of an important three-game series between the top two contenders in the AL West.
Grilli (1-2) took over because Santiago, who allowed two runs — one earned — on seven hits in five innings, lost the feel on his offspeed pitches as a result of Craig Gentry's ball that clipped him en route to an out.
Erick Aybar's wild throw into the A's dugout allowed the tying run to score in the fifth.
Calhoun, throw out to open the game on a ball fielded by the second baseman in shallow right field, lined into a double play to end the fifth after the Angels put runners on second and third.
Mike Trout and Josh Hamilton each hit home runs and David Freese singled home a run in the ninth before Chris Iannetta struck out with the bases loaded to end the game.
Angels: RHP Garrett Richards underwent surgery to repair the torn patellar tendon in his left knee.
After Curtis Granderson led off the game with a home run, the Mets managed only two harmless singles in seven innings against Dan Haren during a 6-2 loss Friday night to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The lack of offense didn't make things any easier for Jonathon Niese, whose teammates tied a season-high with four errors.
The unearned runs were the result of a throwing error by shortstop Wilmer Flores on a routine grounder by Adrian Gonzalez.
The Mets made two more miscues in the eighth, one by third baseman David Wright on a hard grounder by pinch-hitter Andre Ethier, the other by first baseman Lucas Duda on a foul pop by Puig.
The Dodgers got their first two batters on in the third inning before Haren bunted into a double play started by Niese.
Carlos Torres relieved Niese, and Matt Kemp greeted him with a two-run double to make it 5-1.
 Mets relievers had stranded 132 of 166 inherited runners (79.5 percent), the best in the majors.
Closer Jenrry Mejia, who was held back from a save situation Wednesday at Oakland because of a sore back, was the first Mets player out on the field to do running and was available if needed, Collins said.
Rookie Jacob deGrom (6-5, 2.87 ERA) will be reinstated from the disabled list and make his first start since Aug.
A Pierce County sheriff's spokesman says a deputy shot and wounded a knife-wielding man late Friday night in the Tacoma, Washington, area.

Abu Omar's grim odyssey is shared by countless members of Iraq's once-dominant Sunni minority, who feel maligned by the Shiite-led government in Baghdad, hounded by its security forces and increasingly threatened, once again, by the militias that terrorized them during the darkest days of sectarian bloodletting in 2006 and 2007.
The family, which asked that their last name not be published for fear of harassment, first fled to Azamiyah from Fallujah in 2005, when U.
