Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 7 — New York Yankees 1


C.J. Wilson and the offensive support in the form of three home runs put the 4-game win streak to an end in today’s 7-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.


Phil Hughes was chased from the ballgame after just 3.1 innings. Home runs by Chris Iannetta and Howie Kendrick were a part of the 8 hits and 6 runs surrendered by Hughes. David Phelps came in for relief and had a much stronger outing than Hughes as he went 5.1 innings while surrendering just one run on a solo home run by Vernon Wells.


The Yankees offense struggled against the lefty of the Angels as they only got one run off of him in 6 innings of work and could not manage to make a dent in the difference against three of the Angels relievers.


Win – C.J. Wilson (2-0)

Loss – Phil Hughes (0-2)




*Howie Kendrick – 3 for 5, 2 R, 2-Run Home Run (1) in the 4th, 3 RBI (3)

*Chris Iannetta – 1 for 2, 2 R, 2 BB, 2-Run Home Run (1) in the 2nd, 2 RBI (5)


*Robinson Cano – 1 for 4, RBI (1)

*Eduardo Nunez – 1 for 3, R


Current Yankees Record: 4-4

Yankees are out of Phil Hughes excuses

New York Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes made his second start yesterday afternoon against Los Angeles Angels, and ex-Ranger CJ Wilson. And Hughes preformed exactly how I thought he would, terribly.

Time Running Out To Save Phil Hughes’ Legacy

Looking Like Andy's Targeting a Mid May Return

From Mark Hale:The way things looked for Andy Pettitte after yesterday’s minor league outing, it seemed possible he would need just two more starts before rejoining the Yankees. Pettitte’s return to the major league seemed imminent, meaning Phil Hughes might get just two more turns to solve his woes. Both Pettitte and Hughes, however, will be getting more time. Following...

Wilson cools Yankees, ends Angels' skid

NEW YORK -- CJ Wilson has pitched twice for the Angels and won both times. He hasn't exactly sailed through lineups or shut down opponents, but he does things managers like to see: He throws strikes and knows how to extricate himself from trouble. Wilson's performance against the New York Yankees in a nationally televised game on Saturday was another example. On four occasions...

Angels Wilson was nearly a Marlin

To this day, the Miami Marlins believe they had little chance of preventing free-agent left-hander C.J. Wilson from returning to his native southern California. Little do the Marlins know, Wilson came within perhaps 15 minutes of taking their offer instead of agreeing to a five-year, $77.5 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels. According to Wilson, his agent, Bob Garber...

Game Recap 4/14/12 -- That's More Like It -- Angels 7 Yankees 1

Now, wasn't that better? All the Angels needed was a bit of quality pitching, an explosion of power and suddenly all is right with the universe. My hunch is that the Angel players got together and said, "enough is enough. Let's get our act together" and, VOILA!!, it happened. The question is it just a fluke or the beginning of a legitimate winning streak...Angels...
