Angels Vs. Yankees Final Score: Halos Drop 3rd Stright Series With 11-5 Loss In New York

The Los Angeles Angels picked up a win on Saturday afternoon against the New York Yankees and were hoping to pick up a series win on Sunday during a game televised nationally on ESPN on Jackie Robinson Day. Things did not quite go the Halos' way, however, as they wound up taking the loss and dropping their third straight series to start the 2012 season. The Angels fell behind early and lost by a final score of 11-5.

The Angels got on the board first, with a solo home run by Mark Trumbo in the top of the second inning. Their lead would be short-lived, however, as Raul Ibanez hit an RBI single in the bottom of the second to tie things up.

The bottom of the third inning saw the Yankees extend their lead to 5-1. A three-run home run by Derek Jeter in the fourth stretched that lead all the way to 8-1.

Los Angeles gained back some ground with a two-run homer by Chris Iannetta in the fifth, a Maicer Izturis RBI double in the sixth and an Albert Pujols RBI single in the seventh, cutting the Yankees lead to 8-5. Unfortunately, the Yankees answered right back with three runs in the bottom of the seventh, with a Nick Swisher RBI and a two-run homer by Raul Ibanez.

Starter Jerome Williams had an extremely rough outing in his first start of the year. He gave up five earned runs in just 2.2 innings, on five hits and three walks. Each of the four Halos pitchers used in the game gave up at least one earned run.

Angels Vs. Yankees Final Score: Home Runs Power Halos To 7-1 Win

The Los Angeles Angels hoped to snap their three-game losing streak and wake up their dormant offense on Saturday against the hometown New York Yankees. They succeeded admirably on both fronts, leaning on the long ball en route to a dominant 7-1 victory.

In his second start of the season, C.J. Wilson was once again stellar, allowing six walks and two walks in six innings, but allowing just one run, on a Robinson Cano RBI single in the bottom of the fifth.

By the time the Yankees scored their lone run, the Halos had already done more than enough damage. Chris Iannetta got the scoring started by launching a two-run homer off of Yankees starter Phil Hughes in the top of the second inning and the Angels never looked back.

In the top of the third, Albert Pujols picked up his third RBI of the year on his third double of the year. The final four angels runs would all come by way of the homer, as Howie Kendrick launched a three-run bomb off Hughes in the top of the fourth that led to Hughes finally coming out of the game after 3.1 IP, eight hits, two walks, two home runs and six runs allowed. Hughes' lone bright spot was his six strikeouts.

In the top of the fifth inning, Vernon Wells hit a solo home run to left field. It was the 250th homer of Wells' career and the third of the game for the Angels, doubling their 2012 season total so far. According to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, the Angels and Yankees are now the only two teams in baseball to each have four players on their active roster with 250 career home runs.

Kevin Jepsen, LaTroy Hawkins and Jordan Walden all contributed scoreless innings to lock down the Angels win.

Angels vs. Yankees Lineups: Albert Pujols, Robinson Cano Batting Third

The Angels have struggled in the early going of the 2012 season, but they'll turn to stud left-handed pitcher C.J. Wilson to try and right the ship on Saturday afternoon. Los Angeles will face a tough Yankees lineup stocked with sluggers, so Wilson needs to get ahead in the count and keep his pitches down in the zone if he hopes to come away with a win on Saturday afternoon.

Albert Pujols is batting third once again for the club. Mark Trumbo was given the day off and was replaced by Alberto Callaspo, who is batting sixth. The rest of the lineup looks pretty similar to what manager Mike Scoscia has gone with this season.

Angels:

Erick Aybar SS
Howie Kendrick 2B
Albert Pujols 1B
Kendrys Morales DH
Torii Hunter RF
Alberto Callaspo 3B
Vernon Wells LF
Chris Iannetta C
Peter Bourjos CF

Angels Vs. Yankees Preview: Halos Look To Get Back In Win Column Behind C.J. Wilson

The Los Angeles Angels have been struggling in the early going of 2012. They blew leads in back-to-back losses against the Minnesota Twins and arrived in the Big Apple in order to be promptly shut out by the New York Yankees on Friday.

Saturday morning, the Angels will be trying to get things back on the right foot and they'll be set up well to do so. C.J. Wilson will take the mound for the Halos. Their newest pitching acquisition is currently sporting a 1-0 record and 1.29 ERA. He'll go up against Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes, who is 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA. In Hughes' last start, he threw 99 pitches in just 4.2 innings.

Saturday's game will begin at 10:05 a.m. PT. The game will be one of four games selected to be broadcast locally on FOX, so you are at the mercy of MLB's whims as to whether you will be able to watch. The radio broadcast, as always, will be on KLAA 830.
