(NEW YORK) — Who says the Yankees are too old? On Saturday, the team was able to beat the Los Angeles Angels thanks to a couple of their younger players.
Second-year player John Ryan Murphy was the difference in the game for the Yankees. His RBI single in the second inning gave the Yankees a 3-1 lead, and his first career home run gave the team a 4-3 lead in the fifth inning which proved to be the difference.
In just his seventeenth Major Leaue appearance, reliever Dellin Bestances picked up the first win of his career after pitching two innigs of scoreles ball while srikking out three batters.
Another good sign for the Yankees was that David Robertson picked up the save, his first since coming off the disabled list.
Angels starter Hector Santiago gave up four earned runs in 4.1 innings pitched, raising his ERA this season to 4.44.
