LA Angels defeat NY Yankees 10-2. Making his first start for the Angels since September 29, Sean O’Sullivan (1-0) filled in from the bullpen for a struggling Scott Kazmir and did a good job. It didn’t look good in the first inning when Sullivan gave up two runs including a Nick Swisher solo homer, but the only thing he gave up the rest of the way was a walk in the fifth inning to Brett Gardner that was erased by a double play ball hit by Derek Jeter. Meanwhile the Angels busted out of the yard with two-run homers by Maicer Izturis in the fourth inning, Mike Napoli in the sixth inning and Hideki Matsui in the seventh inning. The impressive Phil Hughes (11-3) was anything but giving up six runs his five-plus innings pitched.
