Yankees Topped By Angels For 4th Straight Loss
C.J. Wilson outdid Andy Pettitte with seven effective innings, Albert Pujols and Mark Trumbo each had three hits and Chris Iannetta singled home the go-ahead run, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Friday night.
Wilson (5-5) allowed two runs and five hits, struck out four and walked three while winning for only the second time in his last eight starts.
Ernesto Frieri followed Kevin Jepsen out of the bullpen and pitched a perfect ninth for his 15th save in 16 attempts, helping hand the Yankees their fourth straight loss following a three-game sweep at Oakland.
Pettitte (5-4) gave up four runs and 11 hits through seven innings on the eve of his 41st birthday.
