Nathan Eovaldi credited his splitter, which complements his fastball, curveball and slider mix, as helping him log his career-high eighth victory in the Yankees' 3-1 win over the Angels in Anaheim on Wednesday.
On a seven-game road trip, the difference between finishing with three victories or five losses is substantial, and first baseman Mark Teixeira's deft glovework might have helped save the Yankees from a long, quiet flight back to New York on Wednesday.
Nathan Eovaldi tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings, and Garrett Jones smacked a long solo home run off Matt Shoemaker, helping the Yankees avoid a sweep by the Angels with a 3-1 win Wednesday at Angel Stadium.
Ivan Nova pitched scoreless ball into the sixth inning Tuesday and, after running into trouble, was able to hand the ball off and allow Adam Warren to squelch the Angels' rallies. It still resulted in a 2-1 Yankees loss, but Alex Rodriguez said that he loved what he saw.
Albert Pujols and Erick Aybar hit back-to-back home runs in the sixth inning Tuesday night to lead the Angels to a 2-1 win over the Yankees at Angel Stadium, clinching a series victory over New York prior to Wednesday's finale.
As Yankees No. 2 prospect Aaron Judge winds down his Minor League career, there are few things he still has yet to accomplish before hitting the big leagues. But he managed to do something he had never done before Tuesday night.
The numbers never seemed to add up in Adam Warren's favor for a season-long stint in the rotation, and though the Yankees' right-hander was displeased by the decision to move him back to the bullpen, he was not surprised when manager Joe Girardi sat him down for the explanation.
CC Sabathia has allowed at least one home run in each of his last five starts, and with Mike Trout and C.J. Cron joining his hit list on Monday, it's official: No Major League pitcher has surrendered more round-trippers (19) than the big Yankees' left-hander has this season.
Mike Trout did it all on Monday night, turning in a couple of run-saving, highlight-reel catches and clubbing another home run while leading the Angels to a 4-1 win over the Yankees in Southern California.
Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is enjoying one of the best stretches of his career, relishing his standing as a consistent annoyance for opposing pitchers. It is a hot streak that has now been recognized with an American League Player of the Week award.
Soccer took over Yankee Stadium on Sunday, when the city's newest rivalry, the expansion New York City Football Club vs. the Red Bulls, took place. The veteran squad showed who's boss, at least for one day, with a 3-1 victory.
The general rule is that the center fielder should catch anything that he can get to, but in the final milliseconds as Brett Gardner camped under Carlos Correa's fourth-inning fly ball, he flinched at the sight of another glove unexpectedly approaching.
Captivating the Minute Maid Park crowd for a second game in a row, Carlos Correa hit two doubles and scored two runs while Collin McHugh was stellar in eight innings of two-hit ball, propelling the Astros to a 3-1 win in the series finale on Sunday against the Yankees.
The Yankees selected right-hander Esmil Rogers to their active roster prior to Sunday's series finale against the Astros at Minute Maid Park, in need of some length for what manager Joe Girardi sees as a short bullpen.

Desperate for offense, the Mets have discussed calling up last year's top Draft pick, outfielder Michael Conforto, who has been thriving at Double-A Binghamton since an early-season promotion. But the team has no plans to debut Conforto anytime soon, general manager Sandy Alderson said.
Smiling, laughing, joking -- "that joyful sound" back in his voice, as Terry Collins put it -- the David Wright who appeared at Dodger Stadium on Friday hardly resembled the version who first visited his teammates a month ago in San Diego. But an underlying sense of uncertainty continues to surround Wright and his return from spinal stenosis.
Despite the Mets' disappointing play in recent weeks, dropping from 10 games over .500 in late April to exactly .500 at the start of play Friday, team leaders have given "absolutely no consideration" to making a managerial change, general manager Sandy Alderson said.
No one has to read too much between the lines. Mets captain and third baseman David Wright isn't going to return from stenosis in his lower spine anytime soon. Consequently, if the Mets are going to find any help for their beleaguered offense, ranked 29th in the Major Leagues, it's going to have to be from elsewhere.
The Mets still aren't scoring particularly often, but on Friday night, at least, they managed to score enough. Kevin Plawecki hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, lifting the Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers on a night that saw Noah Syndergaard hold one of the National League's best offenses to two hits in six innings.
Mets manager Terry Collins is out of ideas. He's tried shuffling the lineup, leaving his pitchers in to hit and playing a spattering of new faces. Nothing's worked -- the Mets' offense is still struggling.
