Andrelton Simmons drove in the runs, and the Angels’ pitchers didn’t allow runs in 2-0 win over Yankees

Angels 2 Yankees 0

Well, they made that look easy.

An Albert Pujols single. A C.J. Cron walk. An Andrelton simmons single, that sent Pujols into high gear, chugging from second to home like a runaway train and just barely beating a throw with a well-placed slide.

That was in the first inning, and that series of events lead to a 1-0 Angels lead, surprisingly it would also be the only scoring they’d need in this brisk Sunday afternoon win. Simba also singled in a run in the eighth, giving the Angels a 2-0 lead and some insurance, but it wouldn’t even be necessary.

The pitching shutout the Yankees on this last game of the series, keeping themselves from being swept, and saving a tiny big of face. Emphasis on tiny. A win is a win, though, and unexpectedly, this one came from scoreless innings from Jhoulys Chacin, Deolis Guerra, J.C. Ramirez and Fernando Salas. I definitely wasn’t expecting that.

Enjoy the victory, no matter how it came. We never know when the next one will come these days.
