(ANAHEIM, Calif.) — Second baseman Howie Kendrick had three hits while first baseman Albert Pujols drove in two runs as the Los Angeles Angels (30-38) topped the New York Yankees (37-31) Saturday night, 6-2.
The Halos scored the go-ahead run in the bottom of the sixth when Erick Aybar singled off Yankees starter David Phelps, allowing first baseman Mark Trumbo to score. The 29-year-old shortstop also hit a solo home run earlier in the game.
New York lost first baseman Mark Teixeira in the fourth inning when he aggravated his right wrist. He missed the first 53 games of the season due to an injured wrist.
The Yankees have now lost five straight and have dropped 27 of their last 39 games in Anaheim.
