ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _ Pinch-hitter Maicer Izturis drove home
pinch-runner Jeremy Moore with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the
ninth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels rallied to beat the New
York Yankees 2-1 Friday night for their fifth win in six games.

Jered Weaver struck out 11 Yankees during eight innings of
three-hit ball, but the Los Angeles ace left without a victory when
his teammates couldn’t solve Bartolo Colon, who yielded six hits
and an unearned run in seven resilient innings.

After Alberto Callaspo led off the ninth with an infield single
off Aaron Laffey (2-2), Vernon Wells singled to left off Luis
Ayala, who then hit Peter Bourjos with a pitch.

Izturis’ drive to center easily scored Moore for the Angels’
10th win of the season on their final swing.
