The Yankees managed to get out of Anaheim with a win, fending off two late Angels rallies to win tonight’s series finale 6-5. Cory Wade struck out Howie Kendrick with runners at the corners in the seventh, then Rafael Soriano left two stranded in the ninth to close out the win. Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson each homered in a five-run third inning that gave the Yankees an early lead, but the Angels came right back to tie it with four-runs in the fourth. The biggest blow, it turned out, was a triple by Raul Ibanez, who scored the go-ahead run on Nick Swisher’s sacrifice fly. Ivan Nova allowed five runs through 6.2 innings but picked up his second straight win and sixth of the season.
