There Is No Home Like The One You've Got, 'Cause That Home Belongs To You: Angels 5, Yankees 2
The Angels' run scoring commenced with a pair of doubles in the first, thanks to a pair of doubles by Vlad and Torii Hunter. The Angels picked up another on a two-out Eric Aybar double in the fifth, which A-Rod answered two innings later with a solo blast. Once Pettitte left the game, Kendry Morales replaced Robb Quinlan at first, and ripped one into the right field seats off Brian Bruney. Matsui's eighth-inning pinch-hit homer — apparently the first of his career — was followed by yet another Angels run, as if to put a cork in the game before the ninth even started. A good game for a smile.
