The New York Yankees hold off the Anaheim Angels

The New York Yankees defeated the Anaheim Angels on Saturday afternoon.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 4-3.  Vidal Nuno was ok but not great and the bullpen was excellent.  John Ryan Murphy led the offense with a couple of hits including his first major league homerun. 

Nuno pitched 4 1/3 innings giving up three runs on five hits.  He walked two and struck out four.  Dellin Betances got his first major league win pitching two innings.  He gave up a hit and a walk with three strikeouts, Shawn Kelley pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up two hits and a walk with a strikeout and Matt Thornton pitched to one batter and retired him.  David Robertson earned his third save of the season pitching an inning and giving up a hit with two strikeouts. 

Hector Santiago took the loss his fourth of the season.  He pitched 4 1/3 innings giving up six hits and four runs with a walk and three strikeouts.  Kevin Jepsen pitched 2/3 of an inning striking out one, Nick Maronde pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and had a strikeout and Michael Kohn pitched 1 1/3 innings striking out one.  Ernesto Frieri pitched a perfect inning.   

Jacoby Ellsbury had a hit, Derek Jeter had a hit and Alfonso Soriano had a hit.  Brett Gardner had two hits, Brian Roberts drew a walk and Murphy had two hits and three RBI.  Murphy hit a homerun and the Yankees were 1-7 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Gardner had a stolen base and Roberts committed an error. 

Collin Cowgill had a hit, Mike Trout had two hits, an RBI and drew two walks and Albert Pujols had two hits.  Howie Kendrick drew a walk, Chris Iannetta had two hits and an RBI and Ian Stewart had  a hit and drew a walk.  David Freese had a hit, Iannetta hit a double, Trout hit a homerun and the Angels were 2-14 with runners in scoring position and left ten men on base.  Trout had a stolen base. 

In the first inning Trout hit a solo homerun to give the Angels a 1-0 lead.  In the second Teixeira scored on a balk and then Murphy hit a two run single to give the Yankees a 3-1 lead.  In the fourth the Angels came back to tie the game at three.  Erick Aybar grounded into a force out which scored a run and Iannetta hit an RBI double.  In the fifth Murphy hit a solo homerun to give the Yankees a 4-3 lead and that would be the final score.  The two teams will play the rubber game of their three game series on Sunday night.
