ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _ Brian Roberts hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the ninth inning, and the New York Yankees beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 Tuesday night for just their second victory in seven games.

Roberts had an early RBI single before he connected with two outs against Ernesto Frieri (0-3), putting his first homer with his new club into the elevated right field stands at Angel Stadium.

Mike Trout tripled and scored the tying run on Albert Pujols’ two-out single off Shawn Kelley (1-2) in the eighth inning for the Angels, who had won five of seven on their nine-game homestand.

Alfonso Soriano had an RBI single in the eighth inning for the Yankees.

David Robertson pitched the ninth for his fifth save.
