New York Recovers From Game 1 Loss To Win Series Against Anaheim

July 12: Anaheim 9, New York 2

The Angels made their Yankee Stadium debut and promptly teed off on Roger Clemens. The Rocket surrendered two walks, seven hits, and six runs before getting yanked after just 3.1 innings. The Anaheim hit parade was led by none other than catcher Bob Boone, who enjoyed his first three-hit day of the year.

Kelvim Escobar showed the New York fans why he made the Expansion All-Star roster,  yielding only two runs on a Mickey Mantle dinger to the powerful Yanks lineup. Escobar has a 2.81 ERA over his last six starts.

The Angels have now surprisingly won three out of four against the Yankees.

Anaheim’s Nolan Ryan contained the damage from his wildness a little better than he usually does, but got bitten by New York’s power. Babe Ruth doubled in a run and scored in the first, and in the sixth Robinson Cano tripled and came home on an Alex Rodriguez homer.

Bob Shawkey, Goose Gossage, David Robertson, and Mariano Rivera combined to allow just three hits to the Angels.

July 14: New York 8, Anaheim 5

In the final meeting between the teams this season, New York evened the season series at three games apiece. Neither starter was particularly effective, but though the Angels offense had a good day (led by three hits each from Jims Edmonds and Fregosi), they couldn’t keep up with NY’s murderer’s row. Lou Gehrig bashed his league-best 22nd dongshot and A-Rod smacked three hits.
