Angels beat Aceves (Girardi)

To quickly recap yesterday’s game, Joe Girardi pulled David Robertson in the 11th inning after he recorded the first two outs, and Alfredo Aceves gave up two hits and the game was over. The Angels won 5-4, and now carry some momentum heading into game 4.

Quick ‘Cap:
The Yankees offense was made up of four solo homers; the first from Derek Jeter, then Alex Rodriguez, then Johnny Damon and then Jorge Posada to tie the game in the eighth.

The Angels posted their first three runs on a homer by Howie Kendrick and a two-run homer by Vladimir Guerrero. Kendrick tripled in the seventh and then scored on a sac fly.

Andy Pettitte did his part, but it was Joba Chamberlain who allowed the run in the seventh.

Girardi should never have pulled Robertson in that situation, as he said he was going by the numbers.

Line of the Night:
Kendrick: 3-for-5, HR, 3B, RBI, 3 R. A double shy of the cycle.
