LA Angels defeat NY Yankees 5-2. While the Angels probably won't overtake the Yankees for the best record in the American League, they showed they can still dominate the bombers. Aside from solo home run shots from Alex Rodriguez and Hideki Matsui, Angels starter Joe Saunders kept the Yankees quiet through 8 1/3 innings. In fact the Yankees were 0-for-11 with runners on base. The Angels got to Yankees starter Andy Pettitte in the first inning with back-to-back RBI doubles by Vladimir Guerrero and Torii Hunter. At a 90-60 record, both the Angels and the Dodgers have identical records. If both teams make the playoffs it will mark just the third time both teams have played in October. They previously did this in 2004 and 2008.
