Angels Beat Yankees in Pitchers Duel 2-1
A rough few days for the Yankees as they played their third game in 3 days in 3 different stadiums in 2 different time zones.
It was all about pitching on Friday Night (9/9) as the Yankees lost a tough game to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim by the score of 2-1.
Jared Weaver was lights out for the Angels going 8 innings, allowing 3 hits while striking out 11. Weavers’ only mistake was a home run to deep left off the bat of Yankees rookie Jesus Montero for the Yanks only run.
Bartolo Colon also pitched well going 7 innings, allowing 6 hits and a run while striking out 5. Colon got into a bit of trouble in the bottom of the 5th as the Angels played small ball. Peter Bourjos reached on a bunt single. Jeff Mathis then reached on a Derek Jeter throwing error. Erick Aybar grounded into a fielders choice and Howie Kendrick hit an RBI single that scored Bourjos.
It all came down to the final inning as the Yankee bullpen couldn’t get it done. Once again it was small ball working for the Angels. Two singles, a hit by pitch and a sacrifice fly gave the Angels the win.
These two teams go at it again tomorrow night as CC Sabathia looks to get his 20th win against the Angels Dan Haren. First pitch is 9:05. Check out all the action on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio.
