What's That, Lassie? The Angels Took A Series From The Yankees? Angels 5, Yankees 1
The guys now we are starting to grow accustomed to getting the job done offensively — Trout and Trumbo — also had a thunderous ovation added to that list by Albert Pujols, the man paid as a Cooperstown bat but who has mostly played like a reserve all year. Yet, Pujols has homered five times since May 22, so the small sample size theater is ongoing and positive. Trumbo's homer, particularly, was a monster shot to the rockpile in center; if Andy Pettite had anything in the tank, it certainly didn't appear so.
Dan Haren was generally masterful (his third straight good outing), Scott Downs threw a scoreless inning, and while Ernesto Frieri was wobbly (loading the bases on a hit batter and a pair of walks), he escaped unscathed. Get 'em tonight, boys.
