The Angels rallied for four runs in the 7th inning on Thursday night, defeating the Yankees 10-5 at Yankee Stadium. The Halos took two out of three games from New York.
That 7th inning featured three errors and two wild pitches by the Yankees. Albert Pujols delivered a run-scoring single that gave the Angels the lead for good, scoring Cameron Maybin.
Maybin also lead off the game with a home run against Luis Severino, who took the loss and fell to 5-3 on the season. Maybin stole his AL-high 22nd base, and scored three times. He has safely reached in a career-high 26 straight games.
Yusmeiro Petit (2-0) threw two perfect innings in relief of starter Jesse Chavez to get the win. The Angels trailed 5-1 before scoring nine unanswered runs.
“You get knocked down,” Maybin said, “but we don’t get knocked out.”
Aaron Judge connected on a three-run homer that was his major league-leading 25th home run of the season.
The Angels are back at .500 with a record of 38-38. They are 1.5 games out of the 2nd and final AL Wild Card spot.
Alex Meyer (3-3, 3.52 ERA) will get the start on Friday as the Angels open up a 3-game series with the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Rick Porcello (3-9, 5.05 ERA) gets the ball for the Sox.
