New York Yan­kees 8, An­gels 2

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL - —Mike DiGio­vanna

AT THE PLATE: Matt Joyce dou­bled to lead off the fifth in­ning and scored on Johnny Gi­avotella’s sac­ri­fice fly, and Mike Trout drove a ball into the right-field seats to lead off the sixth for his team-lead­ing 15th homer of the sea­son. That was the ex­tent of the high­lights for the An­gels, who loaded the bases with one out in the fourth, only to have David Freese ground into an in­ning-end­ing dou­ble play.

ON THE MOUND: Starter-turned-tem­po­rary-re­liever Hec­tor San­ti­ago helped pre­serve the bullpen by throw­ing 3 2⁄3 score­less in­nings of re­lief, strik­ing out three and walk­ing none, and left-han­der Jose Al­varez added two hit­less in­nings in which he walked one. Yan­kees starter Adam War­ren gave up two runs and four hits in 6 2⁄3 in­nings to im­prove to 4-4 with a 3.64 earned-run av­er­age.

ROS­TER MOVES: The An­gels re­called C.J. Cron from triple A on Satur­day and sent re­liever Edgar Ibarra back to Salt Lake. Cron opened the sea­son as the des­ig­nated hit­ter but hit .204 with one homer and six RBIs be­fore be­ing de­moted May 25. He hit .366 with two homers, four dou­bles and seven RBIs in 10 games at Salt Lake. “I didn’t changemy swing,” Cron said. “I just got reg­u­lar play­ing time and got my tim­ing back.” Cron’s strug­gles re­duced him to a pla­toon player, start­ing only against left-han­ders, but if he pro­duces, he could ex­pand his role. “If you want to play more, play bet­ter,” Man­ager Mike Scios­cia said. … Af­ter the game, the An­gels op­tioned util­ity man Grant Green back to triple A. They will call up another pitcher Sun­day.

UP NEXT: Left-han­der C.J. Wil­son (3-4, 3.55 ERA) will op­pose Yan­kees left-han­der CC Sa­bathia (2-7, 5.45 ERA) at Yan­kee Sta­dium at 10 a.m. PDT. On the air: TV: FSWest; Ra­dio: 830.
