Fittingly, with the majority of the pregame talk focused on the Yankees inability to hit with runners in scoring position, literally everyone in the lineup contributed in an 11-5 win over the Angels in the series finale on Sunday. Derek Jeter (2 for 5 with a double, two runs scored and a three-run homer) and Raul Ibanez (2 for 4 with a two-run upper deck shot) had the biggest games, but everyone in the Yankees lineup either scored or drove in a run. The middle of the order — A-Rod, Robby Cano and Mark Teixeira — combined to go 5 for 12 with two doubles, two RBI, three walks and four runs scored. Ivan Nova gave the Yankees another solid outing to earn his second win in as many starts, allowing four runs on eight hits while striking out eight in six innings.
