Angels 10, Yankees 2

Bronx, NY (Sports Network) – Mike Napoli, Maicer Izturis and former Yankee Hideki Matsui each hit a two-run homer to lead the Angels to a 10-2 win over New York at Yankee Stadium.

Napoli finished with four RBI for the Angels, who captured the opener of this brief two-game set and have won four of their last five games overall.

Sean O’Sullivan was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake late Monday and pitched six strong innings. O’Sullivan (1-0) replaced Scott Kazmir, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left shoulder, and allowed two runs on two hits with four strikeouts to earn the win.

Phil Hughes (11-3) suffered the loss after he yielded six runs on nine hits in five-plus innings for the Yankees, who lost for only the fourth time in the month of July (11-4).

Nick Swisher hit his 17th home run of the season in the losing effort.
