Yankees complete three-game sweep of Angels

The New York Yankees completed the three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium by winning both games of the doubleheader. New York cruised to a 6-1 victory in the first game and won the second game, 2-1.

In Game 1, Nestor Cortes started on the mound for New York and tossed seven shutout innings. Clarke Schmidt allowed a run in relief, while Wandy Peralta had a scoreless outing. 

Matt Carpenter, Gleyber Torres, Aaron Judge, and DJ LeMahieu homered. Marwin Gonzalez and Miguel Andújar also drove in runs. Aaron Hicks collected three hits. 

In Game 2, Jameson Taillon started on the bump for New York and was outstanding. He was perfect through seven before he gave up a leadoff double in the eighth. Taillon surrendered one run on two hits over eight innings while striking out five. Clay Holmes picked up the save with a scoreless ninth.

The Yankees plated both of their runs in the eighth inning. Anthony Rizzo came off the bench and grounded one through the middle for a two-out, two-run single, which ended up being the difference in the game.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Marwin Gonzalez each had two-hit games.

The Yankees will begin a three-game series with the Detroit Tigers on Friday night in the Bronx. The first pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m.
