Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v New York Yankees

NEW YORK (AP) — Mark Teixeira homered twice and drove in five runs, Russell Martin hit a go-ahead single and the New York Yankees overcame yet another homer by Mark Trumbo to rally past the Los Angeles Angels 6-5 Friday night.

Teixeira’s three-run shot and Martin’s two-out single in the eighth inning overcame the Angels’ 5-2 edge.

Trumbo homered in his fifth straight game against the Yankees. His three-run shot in the seventh made him the first Yankees opponent to homer five games in a row since Albert Belle in 1994, STATS LLC said.

Howie Kendrick was thrown out at second base to end the game. He tried to advance when a pitch from Rafael Soriano bounced away, but Martin made a strong peg for the final out.

The Yankees, with the best record in the majors, broke loose after C.J. Wilson was pulled following a sharp seven-inning start.
