Carlos Beltran hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in a five-run fifth inning, and the New York Yankees beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-3 Thursday night to complete a four-game sweep and reach .500 for only the second time since mid-April.

A night after homering twice in his first Yankees start, Chris Parmelee hit a tying single. But he needed to be helped off the field in the seventh after injuring his right hamstring while stretching into a split to grab Didi Gregorius' throw on an inning-ending groundout.

Ivan Nova (5-3) won his second straight start, allowing three runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings. Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman combined for two-hit relief, with Chapman getting three outs for his 11th save in 12 chances. The Yankees are 8-0 when all three pitch.

Brett Gardner had his second straight three-hit night for New York, which swept a four-game series from the Angels for the first time since July 1994.
