OC Register: Angels hang on for second straight victory over Yankees


Recommended Posts

ANAHEIM — Aaron Boone did exactly what any manager with a pulse would do.

The New York Yankees manager intentionally walked Shohei Ohtani to get to Phil Gosselin.

Gosselin, however, made the Yankees pay, ripping a two-run single that provided key insurance runs in the Angels’ 6-4 victory on Tuesday night.

Gosselin and Ohtani then pulled off a double steal, with Ohtani sliding safely home, to pad the lead.

Ohtani’s 22nd stolen base of the season was his first steal of home, adding another line to the resume for a player who leads the major leagues with 42 homers and has a 3.00 ERA in 19 starts.

It was part of a crisply played game for the Angels, who won a series against a team with a winning record for the first time since taking two of three from the Boston Red Sox from July 5-7. The Angels have won three in a row against the San Diego Padres and Yankees.

The Angels’ other offensive star was Jared Walsh, who put them on the board with a three-run homer in the fourth. It was his third homer in the last six games.

Defensively, the Angels turned five double plays for the first time since 2013, helping to support the six pitchers who combined to hold down the Yankees’ powerful lineup.

Jaime Barria was on the mound for three of the double plays in his 4-1/3 innings, during which the Yankees scored on solo homers by Anthony Rizzo in the fourth and Gary Sanchez in the fifth.

Manager Joe Maddon didn’t give Barria much rope after that. Barria walked Brett Gardner following the Sanchez homer, and then Maddon pulled him.

Maddon handed a 3-2 lead to an Angels bullpen full of question marks, starting with Jimmy Herget, who made his Angels debut after being signed as a minor league free agent earlier this month.

Herget retired both hitters he faced in the fifth. The Angels had added three insurance runs on the Gosselin hit and the double steal by the time Herget took the mound in the sixth. He pitched another scoreless inning, with the help of the Angels’ fourth double play.

Elvis Peguero, who the Angels acquired from the Yankees in the Andrew Heaney trade last month, worked a scoreless seventh despite allowing a leadoff double and then hitting a batter. He escaped with the help of the Angels’ fifth double play.

In the eighth, Peguero allowed the first two hitters to reach and both came around to score while Junior Guerra was on the mound. Giancarlo Stanton barely missed a game-tying three-run homer, with his drive dying at the warning track.

Jake Petricka then got the final two outs of the inning, striking out Gio Urshela and Luke Voit.

Raisel Iglesias worked the ninth to record the save.

Junior Guerra did try and allow the misguided Yankee fans an opportunity to fire the chant back up during his stint, but eventually someone pointed out to Maddon that Guerra sucked and needed to be pulled.

After that, the chanting died down again.
