Angels Vs. Yankees Final Score: Albert Pujols Homers, Leads Halos To 8th Straight Win, 5-1

Albert Pujols and Mark Trumbo hit home runs to back Dan Haren's strong pitching, as the Los Angeles Angels won their eighth straight game Monday night, 5-1 over the New York Yankees at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. It was the eighth straight win for the Halos.

Haren pitched into the eighth inning, allowing just one run on the night, for his third win of the season. Haren had seven strikeouts and no walks on the night, his second straight start with no walks. During those two starts, Haren has struck out 21 batters.

Pujols went 2-for-4 and scored two runs in addition to hitting a two-run home run in the third inning. It was the fifth home run in the last eight games for Pujols, who served as the designated hitter on Tuesday night.

Mike Trout tripled and scored in the third inning, and also robbed Nick Swisher of a home run with a catch over the wall in left field in the second inning. It was a rough night for Swisher, who had an RBI single but in addition to the near home run was robbed of two doubles by Peter Bourjos in center field.
