NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Angels reliever Kevin Jepsen tried to treat it like any other situation. "'Me against you, here it is,'" Jepsen said of his approach after he recorded the final out of the Angels' 10-8 victory over the Yankees on Sunday. Trouble is, the "him" was another one of the Yankees' current Murderers' Row of hitters in Alex Rodriguez, who had broken out of some recent struggles with two hits and one of the teams' eight combined homers on the day. The "where" couldn't have helped, as the Yankee Stadium crowd was roaring after New York scored three runs in the ninth and loaded the bases with two outs, after entering the inning down 10-5. The Yankees had already dispatched a pair of relievers who had combined to allow just one run on the season for the Angels entering the series. It was a task similar to one of those eerie moments in a horror movie, with Jepsen's role that of yet another teenager to ve...

Yankee fans cannot blame Alex Rodriguez

There is no ‘i’ in TEAM. The New York Yankees were looking to sweep the LA Angels yesterday, but after a hard fought game the Halos beat the Bombers 10-8. Of course the game went down to the last out, as the Yankees had the bases loaded and Alex Rodriguez couldn’t get the job as he popped up for the final out. Overall a successful weekend in the Bronx as the Yankees won the...

Walden placed on DL

NEW YORK Angels reliever Jordan Walden was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday because of a right biceps strain, an injury that is not believed to be serious but one the hard-throwing right-hander could no longer pitch through.

Open Letter to Brian Cashman: Don't even pick up the phone

Dear Madam or Sir,Once again, the Yankiverse is buzzing over potential trades. Because it's July, we always go through this pointless charade, like the 12 days of Christmas, wondering who we can get. And if we do cut a deal, it's immediately cheered and a year later, lambasted. This year, let's do nothing.That was the policy of perhaps the greatest GM in modern...

Yankees 5, Angels 3

NEW YORK -- The Los Angeles Angels can make a nuisance of themselves, so often looking to take an extra base -- if not outright steal it -- that opponents can get fidgety. Unless they can just swat away such problems. The New York Yankees have been known to do that all year, and did so again with another pair of home runs helping them to a 5-3 win over the Angels on Saturday...

A look at Joe DiMaggio (Video)

On the anniversary of Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak we take a look at Joltin' Joe's career.

He is perhaps best known for his 56-game hitting streak (May 15 – July 16, 1941), a record that still...
