The Angels wasted no time, plating three in the first on Gary Matthews Jr.'s two-run triple, which was followed by an RBI single by Casey Kotchman, who went 3-for-3. That was all the support Kelvim Escobar would need, as he held his opponent to one run on six hits. Francisco Rodriguez struck out the side in the ninth for the save.
Chien-Ming Wang gave up three runs in the first inning but settled down after that, at one point retiring 17 of 19. The Yanks got their only run in the fourth, when A-Rod manufactured one by singling, stealing second, advancing on a groundout and scoring on a single. Derek Jeter went 0-for-4, his streak ended at 19 games.
