Anthony Rizzo's error costs Yankees in 4-3 loss to Angels

Antonio RizzoSan Francisco’s error in the eighth inning opened the door for the Angels to take the lead as the yankees fell to Los Angeles, 4-3, on Tuesday night.

Willie Calhoun opened with a single, and Luis Rengifo reached a fielding error when Rizzo hit a two-out grounder to extend the inning. Holmes Clay entered to preserve leadership during Luke Weaver but Taylor Ward ambushed the reliever and sent a sinker over the head of Alex Verdugo to drive in two and give the Angels a 4-3 lead.

The Yankees fell in order in the ninth and fell to 37-19 on the year.

Here are the conclusions…

juan soto He wasted no time getting the scoring going for the Yankees. In the second inning, the outfielder took a 95 mph fastball from Griffin Canning over the right field wall. The explosion was Soto’s 15th of the season and traveled 424 feet.

Soto would strike again in the fourth when the Yankees trailed 2-1. He singled to left field to allow DJ LeMahieu score with two outs. The Angels pulled Gleyber Torres at home trying to score another run.

The Yankees slugger finished 2 for 5 with the home run and two RBIs.

Nestor Cortes He continued the impressive streak of Yankees starting pitchers with solid starts. Although the left-hander did not have the best start, he worked 5.1 innings (88 strikes / 59 pitches) allowing only two runs and five hits and without walking any batter. He recorded four strikeouts en route to his fourth win of the season. His only mistake was the two-run shot that allowed him Kevin Pilar in the first entry.

Cortes’ departure extended the Yankees’ streak of 15 consecutive games in which a starting pitcher went more than five innings and allowed two runs or fewer. It’s an MLB record, by Elias.

austin wells He gave the Yankees the lead in the fifth inning when he doubled to right center field. Wells was pitching for the Angels when he narrowly missed a home run in his first at-bat. He traveled 363 feet and would have been a home run in 26 parks.

The backup catcher finished 1-for-4.

-LeMahieu made his 2024 debut on Tuesday and was busy. He finished 0 for 3 but walked and scored the tying run on Soto’s single.

Antonio Volpe He extended his hitting streak to 20 games with a single in his second at-bat. He finished 2-for-5.

Game MVP: Taylor Ward

Ward caught Holmes by surprise and launched the first pitch he saw in the eighth to left field for the decisive two-run double.
