Yankees Finish Trip with Win

Yankees defeated the Angels 5-3 on Sunday as they win the series against the Halos two games to one, and go 6-3 on their west coast road trip.

What made this Yankee win special? What’s coming up for the Bronx Bombers?

After starting out their road trip with a miserable 1-2 record in Seattle, the Yankees improved to 6-3 on the trip after taking the series in Anaheim by winning Sunday 5-3. Mark Teixeira provided the power for the Yankees hitting two home runs in the game. Nick Swisher also went yard for the Bombers by smacking one off of the foul pole and extending the lead for good.

Things seemed bleak for the Yankees early on in the road trip as they gave away two games in Seattle in which they ultimately could have won. From that point, to go 5-1 is a huge turn-around for this team. Especially doing that on the west coast, where most teams seem to struggle due to the traveling and the play of the AL West teams.

Traditionally the Yankees struggle against the Angels and rarely win a series. That made today’s victory that much sweeter for the Bronx Bombers as they gain valuable momentum as they get ready to face the Red Sox starting Tuesday night in the Bronx.

The Yankees’ bullpen stepped it up during their trip, especially on Sunday as David Robertson again stranded opposing runners on the bases getting a crucial strikeout. Joba Chamberlain went 1 2/3 innings also recording a huge strikeout in the bottom of the 8th inning to keep the Yankee lead, and handing the ball to Mariano Rivera

The Yankees next face the Red Sox Tuesday at Yankee Stadium, then also face the Indians and the Rangers all in this ten game home-stand. This will be a great barometer for the Yankees to test their team and to see how they stack up to their elite competition in the league.
