OC Register: Angels drop 10-inning game to Yankees

Recommended Posts

NEW YORK — Phil Nevin was not in the dugout to see the end of the Angels’ 3-2, 10-inning loss to the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.

The Angels manager had been ejected in the top of the ninth, after arguing the check swing third strike call on Mike Trout that ended the inning, leaving two runners stranded.

The 3-and-2 pitch to Trout was outside. Trout tossed his bat and took a step toward first when first base umpire Will Little rung him up. That got Nevin out of the dugout, and he was quickly tossed by Little.

The Angels ended up losing an inning later.

Although Anthony Rendon was able to move the Angels’ automatic runner to third with a groundout in the top of the 10th, neither Hunter Renfroe nor Gio Urshela could get him in.

In the bottom of the inning, Matt Moore hit Anthony Rizzo to load the bases, just after Aaron Judge had been intentionally walked. DJ LeMahieu then hit a fly ball to center field, deep enough to drive in the winning run.

It was the disappointing end to a night that began with a frustrating moment for the Angels.

In the top of the first inning, Shohei Ohtani stepped to the plate and launched a drive to deep center field. Judge drifted back to the wall, leaped and got just enough of his glove on the ball the block it from going over the fence. It then dropped toward his chest and he caught it.

Judge smiled for a moment certain to be replayed endlessly, not only because of the difficulty of the catch but because it involved the last two American League MVPs.

A few minutes later, Judge smoked a two-run homer against Angels right-hander Griffin Canning.

That was all that Canning gave up in 5-1/3 innings, a strong performance in his second outing after missing a season and a half rehabbing a back injury.

He struck out four and walked three. Canning has allowed four earned runs in 10-1/3 innings in two starts.

Canning pitched from behind because the Angels were struggling with runners in scoring position, going hitless in their first 10 at-bats. Their only run in the first seven innings was on a groundout.

They wasted Zach Neto’s leadoff double in the third, his first of two doubles in the game.

In the sixth, the Angels started with back-to-back singles by Trout and Rendon, but Renfroe then hit into a double play and Urshela struck out.

Ohtani struck out to end the Angels’ half of the seventh, stranding two runners.

Urshela finally came through in the eighth, golfing a pitch at his ankles into center field for a two-out single to tie the game. Renfroe had singled and taken second on a balk.

More to come on this story.
