Trumbo’s HR Ends Angels’ Wild 9-8 Win Over Yankees

ANAHEIM (AP) — Mark Trumbo hit a game-ending homer to left, and the Los Angeles Angels overcame Jered Weaver’s first-inning injury exit for their seventh consecutive victory, a wild 9-8 win over the New York Yankees on Monday night.

Trumbo doubled and tripled before launching the final pitch from Cory Wade (0-1) into the stands.

Howie Kendrick and Kendrys Morales drove in three runs apiece for the Angels (25-25), who got back to .500 for the first time since April 9 while snapping the Yankees’ five-game winning streak.

Weaver left with an apparent lower-back injury after just 12 pitches, but Los Angeles’ lineup matched its season highs with nine runs and 15 hits, capped by Trumbo’s third game-winning homer of his young career.

Jordan Walden (2-1) finished the Angels’ nine-inning relief effort.
