The Yankees defeated the Angels five to three today, winning the series, and heading back to New York with a lot of confidence. The Yankees went 6-3 on this roadtrip, winning one out of three vs. the Mariners, sweeping the Athletics, and taking two out of three from the Angels.
Bartolo Colon was good enough, surrendering three runs in five and a third innings pitched. David Robertson relieved Colon and put on his usual act, walking two, and raising Yankees fans collective heartbeats. Houdini emerged unscathed, and Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera finished the Angels off.
Mark Teixeira hit two home runs, and Nick Swisher belted one off the foul pole in right, to total four of the Yankees five runs. Brett Gardner had the other RBI.
Jorge Posada was 2-4 and Francisco Cervelli was 0-4. Jesus Montero was not present.
For the Jeter lovers out there, Jeter went 1-5. Jeter is now fourteen hits way from 3,000.
