Once again, fighting the rain, the cold, the Yankees and their umpires, the Angels did themselves in by playing sloppy defense and stranding 458 runs on base. Okay, it wasn't that many (actually it was 16), but it felt like the game was over after the Yankees scored their first run.
Wasting a great start by Joe Saunders, and solid relief work by Kevin Jepsen and Darren Oliver, Brian Fuentes surrendered an opposite field home run to Alex Rodriguez in the bottom of the 11th after the Angels had managed to take their first lead of the series.
ALDS Game 3 hero Vladimir Guererro stranded 8 runners, twice leaving the bases loaded and ending the Angels final threat by hitting a weak groundball with two runners in the 13th.
The Angels head to Anaheim, down two games to the Yankees.
