The Yankees avoided the sweep Wednesday night, defeating the Angels 6-5 thanks in part to two Home Runs from Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano.

The Angels would get on the board first thanks to a sacrifice fly off the bat of Mark Trumbo in the bottom of the first. That inning could have been much worse as Ivan Nova had the bases loaded and no outs but was able to get out of the inning with only one run.

The Yankees bats would start to wake up as Granderson would smack a 3 run Home Run and Cano would hit a 2 run blast in the  top of the third. The Angels would tie things up in the bottom of the fourth with the help of a 2 run homer from Trumbo and a 2 run double by Mike Trout.

The Yankees would regain the lead in the top of the sixth as Raul Ibanez hit a triple and Nick Swisher would score him on a sacrifice fly. The Yankees Bullpen would help keep the Angels at 5 runs for the win but would make things interesting in the 9th.

The Yankees will have a day off Thursday as they leave California and head to Detroit to start a three game series with the Tigers. Friday night will see CC Sabathia take on rookie Casey Crosby.  Catch all the action on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio. Pregame at 6:30, first pitch at 7:05.
