Yankees Snap Angels’ 8-Game Winning Streak

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano homered during New York’s five-run third inning, Rafael Soriano retired Mark Trumbo on a broken-bat flyout to end it, and the Yankees snapped the Los Angeles Angels’ eight-game winning streak with a 6-5 victory Wednesday night.

Raul Ibanez tripled off the center field wall and scored the tiebreaking run on Nick Swisher‘s sixth-inning flyout for the Yankees, who recovered from blowing a four-run lead to avoid a series sweep.

Soriano yielded a walk and Albert Pujols‘ infield hit in the ninth inning before breaking the bat of Trumbo, whose homer to left ended Monday’s victory for the Angels.

Trumbo homered in his career-best fourth straight game and drove in three runs for the Angels, who fell short of their first nine-game winning streak in nearly eight years. Rookie Mike Trout had a two-run double as the Angels rallied to tie it in a four-run fourth inning.
