The Yankees lose a close one in Anaheim as the offense does next to nothing

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Anaheim Angels on Tuesday night.  The game took place at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California and the final score was 2-1.  Ivan Nova made the start and pitched well and Adam Warren making his first appearance out of the bullpen for the year was great.  The Yankees offense only managed two hits. 

Nova pitched 5 1/3 innings giving up eight hits and two runs with two walks and seven strikeouts.  Nova lost his first game of the season.  Warren pitched 2 2/3 innings giving up a hit and a walk with two strikeouts. 

Andrew Heaney won his first game of the season pitching seven innings and giving up two hits and a run with two walks and seven strikeouts.  Joe Smith pitched a perfect inning and Huston Street saved his 23rd game of the season pitching a perfect inning with a couple of strikeouts. 

Brett Gardner had a hit, Mark Teixeira had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk and Chase Headley drew a walk.  Teixeira hit a homerun and the Yankees never had a runner in scoring position and didn't leave anyone on base. 

Johnny Giavotella drew a walk, Kole Calhoun had a hit and Mike Trout had two hits.  Albert Pujols had a hit and an RBI, Erick Aybar had two hits and an RBI and David Freese had a hit.  Matt Joyce had two hits and drew a walk, Chris Iannetta drew a walk and Joyce and Aybar each hit a double.  Pujols and Aybar each hit a homerun.  The Angels were 0-11 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base.  Trout was caught stealing and Smith committed an error. 

In the second Teixeira hit a solo homerun to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the sixth Pujols and Aybar hit back-to-back homeruns to give the Angels a 2-1 lead and that would be the final score.  The two teams will play the third and final game of the series on Wednesday night.
