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 the opponent 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 at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees' second straight win over their rivals from the West featured a two-run homer by Robinson Cano in the first and a two-run shot by Curtis Granderson in the third. That, along with five innings of three-run ball by Freddy Garcia and four shutout innings from the bullpen, helped overcome Mike Trout's three hits and two stolen bases. "It's nice to be able to put pressure on the opposing team without putting any pressure," Yankees catcher Chris Stewart said of his many teammates who are home run threats. "We just allow them to put that pressu...

Top Play: Curtis Granderson Robs Mike Trout

Curtis Granderson made the catch of the day by robbing fellow center fielder Mike Trout of extra bases on Sunday.

A-Rod may 'never speak to Reggie Jackson again'

It looks like Reggie Jackson has struck out with Alex Rodriguez over the comments he made about the Yankee third baseman in a Sports Illustrated article last week. A-Rod is still angry over Jackson's remark that Rodriguez's admitted use of steroids should keep him from joining the Yankee legend in the Hall of Fame. A source told the New York Daily News that Rodriguez is...

Once Angels' Wilson exits, Yankees rally for win

NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees trailed by three runs Friday, having been limited to two in the first seven innings by one of baseball's best starters. Having finally chased Los Angeles Angels lefty C.J. Wilson, they got to face Scott Downs, who allowed just one earned run in the season's first half. No matter. The Yankees continued to flex their muscles as the team...

Mike Trout Has Stolen The Show, But Don’t Forget About Bryce Harper

Throughout the first half of the 2012 MLB regular season, one of the hottest topics has been the rookies. Phenoms Bryce Harper and Mike Trout were both called up in late April, and neither has disappointed. We all know that Mike Trout’s numbers are nearly unheard of from anyone, let alone a rookie. He deserves all the credit in the world, and I think he’ll continue to be in the...

Yankees Sign Fukudome to Minor League Deal

Seems like this might be a little insurance in case Brett Gardner cannot make it back. Not sure how much that insurance will pay off however, because in 24 games (51 plate appearances) with the White Sox earlier this season, he hit just .171/.294/.195. Last year, while better than his pathetic start to this season, he hit .262/.342/.370 with only 8 HR and a measly 35 RBI in over...
