Why do the Los Angeles Angels always seem to have the Yankees number? The Yankees blew a 5-1 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning and never recovered, losing 10-6 to the Angels.
Joba Chamberlain should have taken the loss, but he left the game with the score tied in the bottom of the fifth. He left after 4.1 innings, allowing 9 hits and 4 earned runs. The other run was a result of a throwing error by Alex Rodriguez.
A-Rod continued his “barn-storming homer tour” with another shot last night, a solo shot in the top of the fifth. He was 3-5 on the night with a homer, double, 2 RBI and 2 runs scored.
Mark Teixeira was 1-5 in his first return to Los Angeles since leaving in the off-season for the Yankees. He also left four men stranded on base and was booed constantly by the home crowd.
Joba had another horrible outing, something I plan on addressing in another post. Other then this news, check out ESPN for a full recap.
