ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _ Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano
homered during New York’s five-run third inning, Rafael Soriano
retired Mark Trumbo on a broken-bat flyout to end it, and the
Yankees snapped the Los Angeles Angels’ eight-game winning streak
with a 6-5 victory Wednesday night.

Raul Ibanez tripled off the center field wall and scored the
tiebreaking run on Nick Swisher’s sixth-inning flyout for the
Yankees, who recovered from blowing a four-run lead to avoid a
series sweep.

Soriano yielded a walk and Albert Pujols’ infield hit in the
ninth inning before breaking the bat of Trumbo, whose homer to left
ended Monday’s victory for the Angels.

Trumbo homered in his career-best fourth straight game and drove
in three runs for the Angels, who fell short of their first
nine-game winning streak in nearly eight years. Rookie Mike Trout
had a two-run double as the Angels rallied to tie it in a four-run
fourth inning.
