Two runs are still not enough

For one inning, it seemed this new-look offense might be onto something. David Adams had a two-out, two-run single, and the Yankees had an early one-run lead. But then it was back to more of the same. Another night of wasted opportunities sent the Yankees to a 5-2 loss in their series opener against the Angels. The Yankees have lost four straight, having scored just two runs in three of them. Andy Pettitte allowed a season-high 11 hits and let the Angels chip away with a series of one-run innings (one of which was spurred by a routine popup that fell between Adams and Reid Brignac). The Yankees were 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position, with the Adams single in the fourth being the only real highlight. Romine grounded out with the bases loaded, Brett Gardner made a bad base-running play, and Robinson Cano, Vernon Wells and Ichiro Suzuki failed to take advantage of a two-on, no-out situation. Pettitte allowed four runs, with the fifth coming against freshly promoted Chris Bootcheck. Thomas Neal also made his Yankees debut and had a single and a walk.
