Angels 5, Yankees 1: New York Drops Second Straight In Los Angeles

The New York Yankees fell Tuesday to the red-hot Los Angeles Angels for the second time in as many nights, 5-1. The Angels have now won eight in a row, while the Yanks have struggled after taking five straight from the lowly Kansas City Royals and Oakland A's.

Andy Pettitte (2-2) gave up home runs to Mark Trumbo and the suddenly resurgent Albert Pujols. The veteran lefty gave up five runs and nine hits, but lasted into the eighth inning and continued to look strong despite not pitching last season.

Dan Haren (3-5) gave up one run in seven innings to earn the victory for the Angels. Los Angeles also got a solid game from 20-year-old outfielder Mike Trout. The phenom got the Angels on the board in the third inning with an RBI triple and made two highlight-worthy plays in left field.

The Yankees had a chance to tie the game in the ninth when Angels Ernesto Frieri loaded the bases with two walks and a hit-by-pitch. Robinson Cano struck out swinging to end the game, however.

New York will look to prevent the sweep Wednesday night when they hand the ball to Ivan Nova, who will be matched up against Ervin Santana with first pitch scheduled for 10:05 p.m.
