Roberts Lifts Yanks
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Brian Roberts hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the ninth inning, and the New York Yankees beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 Tuesday night for just their second victory in seven games.

Mike Trout tripled and scored the tying run on Albert Pujols’ two-out single off Shawn Kelley (1-2) in the eighth inning for the Angels, who had won five of seven on their nine-game homestand.
Alfonso Soriano had an RBI single in the eighth inning for the Yankees.
David Robertson pitched the ninth for his fifth save.
