New York Yankees lose in Anaheim after a lousy eighth

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim on Monday night.  The game took place at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California and the final score was 4-1.  David Phelps started and pitched well.  Shawn Kelley had all kinds of trouble in the eighth with control and the offense didn't do much once again.  The offense had the bases loaded and no outs in the eighth and couldn't score.
Phelps pitched 5 1/3 innings giving up one run on three hits.  He walked one and struck out three.  Adam Warren pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up a hit and struck out one, Kelly lost his second game of the season pitching 2/3 of an inning and giving up three runs on four walks.  Matt Thornton walked the only batter he faced and Preston Claiborne pitched 1/3 of an inning and walked a batter. 
Jered Weaver won his third game of the season pitching eight innings and giving up six hits and a run.  He walked one and struck out seven.  Ernesto Frieri earned his third save of the season by pitching an inning.  He struck out two batters. 
Derek Jeter had two hits, Mark Teixeira had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk and Kelly Johnson had a hit.  Brian Roberts had a hit, Ichiro Suzuki had a hit and Jeter hit a double.  The Yankees were 2-5 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base.  Teixeira committed an error. 
Mike Trout drew a walk, Albert Pujols had two hits and drew an intentional walk and Raul Ibanez drew a pinch hit walk.  Howie Kendrick had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk, Ian Stewart had an RBI and John McDonald drew an RBI walk.  Chris Iannetta had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk, Colin Cowgill drew a walk and Kendrick hit a triple.  The Angels were 0-6 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. 
In the fifth Stewart hit an RBI groundout giving the Angels a 1-0 lead.  In the seventh Teixeira hit an RBI single to tie the game at one.  In the eight Kendrick drew an RBI walk, McDonald drew an RBI walk and Iannetta drew an RBI walk.  The Angels took a 4-1 lead and that is how the game ended. 
The two teams will play game two of three on Tuesday night.  The Yankees have lost five of their last six games and are one game over 500.
