The New York Yankees (38-19) held off the Los Angeles Angels (21-34), 2-1, on Wednesday night to snap a two-game skid.

The Angels put the tying and winning run on base in the bottom of the ninth, but Clay Holmes recorded three consecutive outs to notch the victory and his 16th save of the season.

Luis Gil continued his terrific start to the season, tossing eight innings of one-run ball while allowing just two hits and striking out eight. The right-hander improved to 7-1 on the season and lowered his ERA to 1.99.

Alex Verdugo blasted his eighth home run to open the scoring. Anthony Volpe extended his hitting streak to 21 games with a leadoff single in the first and later tripled and scored after the ball was thrown in the dugout.

Box Score

The Yankees will try to take two of three from the Angels on Thursday at 9:38 p.m. Carlos Rodón will take the ball for New York.
