Yankees Vs. Angels Final Score: New York's Comeback Falls Short In 10-8 Loss

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Los Angeles Angels, 10-8, on Sunday at Yankee Stadium. The win by the Angels prevented a Yankees sweep in the three-game set between the teams. The Yankees had the bases loaded with two outs in the ninth inning, but Angels closer Kevin Jepsen got Alex Rodriguez to pop out to end the game.

"What an awesome situation to come up in," Rodriguez said after the game. "Just came up a little short."

The Angels got on the board first when Erick Aybar and Albert Pujols hit back-to-back solo homers in the top of the first inning. An Alex Rodriguez two-run shot tied the game in the bottom of the first inning. New York took their first lead on a Derek Jeter RBI single. A sacrifice fly and two run homer from Maicer Izturis gave the Angels a 5-3 lead in the sixth. Curtis Granderson hit a solo home run in the bottom of the inning to cut the lead to one.

Pujols hit into a double play in the seventh inning but Los Angeles was able to score a run on the play. An Eric Chavez home run made it 6-5 in the bottom of the seventh. The Angels added three more runs in the eighth and one run in the ninth to push their lead to 10-5. The Yankees used a two-run homer from Mark Teixeira and a walk by Curtis Granderson to cut the lead to 10-8 in the bottom of the ninth but couldn't tie the game.

Ivan Nova (10-4, 4.18 ERA) started on the mound for the Yankees and went six innings in the loss, giving up nine hits (three homers), six earned runs and two walks. Nova only struck out three batters. Chad Qualls came on in relief of Nova but gave up three more runs (all earned) on four hits. Jered Weaver (11-1, 2.26 ERA) was the starter for the Angels in the win. He gave up 10 hits and five earned runs in seven innings.

Robinson Cano extended his hitting streak to 18 games in the loss. Cano's single in the first inning extended the streak. He finished the game 2-3 at the plate.

The Yankees (54-34) will begin their next series on Monday against the Toronto Blue Jays (45-44) at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees Vs. Angels Final Score: Yanks Mash Their Way To A 5-3 Win

The New York Yankees (54-33) aren't wasting any time getting readjusted out of the All-Star Break. The Bronx Bombers took care of the Los Angeles Angels (48-40) once again, this time winning in less dramatic fashion with a 5-3 victory at Yankee Stadium.

Freddy Garcia (4-2, 5.25 ERA) didn't pitch great, but he got the job done and earned his fourth win of the season. Garcia allowed three runs on five hits and as many walks in five frames, leaving the contest with a 4-3 advantage. The Yankees got perfect relief in the trio of Cody Eppley, David Robertson and Rafael Soriano, who threw four scoreless innings.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi lauded the work by his bullpen.

"I love the job that they're doing," he said. "They're ready to pitch at any time I call upon them."

Eppley has been a huge surprise for the Yankees. Claimed on waivers after being released by the Texas Rangers, the side-arming right-hander has a 2.49 ERA in 30 appearances and has become a part of the late-inning mix.

"From where I started at the beginning of the year with Texas to where I am now I don't think I could have dreamt this up," Eppley said after pitching two shutout innings on Saturday.

After falling behind 2-0 in the top of the first, Robinson Cano hit a game-tying homer in the bottom half, before Curtis Granderson put New York ahead for good with a two-run bomb of his own in the third. Cano ended up with three RBI on the afternoon, giving him 54 on the campaign.

The Angels couldn't get much of anything to happen after the first, only scoring a single run the rest of the day. The biggest standout was rookie sensation Mike Trout, who had three hits, a run scored and two stolen bases.

On Sunday, the Yanks will look for the sweep with Ivan Nova going against Jered Weaver.

Yankees Vs. Angels Final Score: New York Wins 6-5 Behind Mark Teixeira's 5 RBI Night

The New York Yankees beat the Los Angeles Angels by a final score of 6-5 Friday night following a four-run rally in the bottom of the eighth inning. With the win New York improves to 53-33.

Mark Teixeira was the star of the game for the Yankees, going 2-for-4 with two home runs. His first was a two-run shot in the third, and those were the only runs the Yankees had scored as they entered the bottom of the eighth down 5-2. Derek Jeter started things off, taking Scott Downs for a leadoff double. Curtis Granderson reached on a walk, and Mark Teixeira came through again with his second home run of the night. That three run shot tied things at 5-5, but the Yankees weren't done. Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano couldn't add to things, but after Kevin Jepsen entered the game for Los Angeles Russell Martin managed an RBI single to right to put the Yankees up 6-5. With Rafael Soriano earning his 21st save of the year in a scoreless ninth, Martin's single was all the Yankees needed. Chad Qualls gets the win, his first of the year.

Andy Pettitte Injury Update: Yankees Pitcher Will Have Follow-Up X-Ray Sunday

Injured New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte will have a follow-up X-ray on his left ankle on Sunday to evaluate his recovery (via ESPN New York).

Pettitte said about his uneasy wait to return to action, "I'm antsy. You wanna work. If you're not able to pitch, you wanna be able to go for a run, but I'm just trying to be patient and try to stay in shape."

Pettitte did not experience any discomfort while throwing on Friday on flat grown prior to the Yankees' game against the Angels and says his ankle feels "100 better than it has been." He has Sept. 1 circled for his return from the injury. The Yankees will be in the second game of a three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles on that date.

Pettitte's ankle was fractured on June 27 when a line drive off the bat of Indians first baseman Casey Kotchman struck it. In nine starts in 2012, the 40-year-old veteran is 3-3 with a 3.22 ERA.
