Good morning everyone!
The Yankees put an end to their losing streak yesterday with a 6-5 win over the Angels.
Travis Hafner put the Yankees on top with a three-run homer in the third inning which was followed by RBI hits by Lyle Overbay and Justin Nix to give the Yankees a 5-0 lead.
CC Sabathia threw eight fantastic innings before getting into trouble in the ninth. David Robertson and Mariano Rivera almost blew the game for the Yankees in relief but managed to barely hang on to the lead.
The Yankees concluded their ridiculously scheduled ten game West Coast trip with a 4-6 record which has them back in third place in the Al East, three games behind the Red Sox and one-and-a-half games behind the Orioles.
The Yankees are off today and start a nine game home stand with a game against the Dodgers on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees have 26 games left before the All-Star break and 19 of those games will be in Yankee Stadium.
