Well, at least one streak ended last night. The Yankees scoreless streak. That streak ended at 20, however the Yankees losing streak reached four as they fell to the Angels 5-2. The team is now 8-17 in Anaheim since 2008.
The Angels got to Andy Pettitte right away. Mike Trout and Albert Pujols singled. Yankee killer Howie Kendrick doubled in Trout to make it 1-0. The Yankees lone rally came in the fourth, and all with two out. Robinson Cano and Vernon Wells singled. Thomas Neal then walked to load the bases. David Adams singled in two runs to make it 2-1.
They took the lead in the sixth. Pujols hit a ground-rule double to lead off the inning, but was thrown out at the plate by Wells on Trumbo’s single. Kendrick was walked intentionally and two batters later, Iannetta singled in Trumbo. The Angels added to their lead in the seventh. Peter Bourjos led off with a pop-up single that Adams and Reid Brignac inexplicably let drop. After two strikeouts, Pujols and Trumbo followed with singles to make it 4-2.
The Angels got some insurance of ex-Angel Chris Bootcheck in the eighth. Trout drove in Iannetta with a single.
