The Yankees moved to a season-high 21 game over .500 after defeating the Angels on Saturday afternoon. Freddy Garcia allowed three earned runs on five hits through five innings while Los Angeles starter Jerome Williams surrendered five earned runs on seven hits in six innings of work. Alberto Callaspo got the Halos on the board first with a two-run single in the first. But, Robinson Cano belted a two-run home run in the bottom of the inning and Curtis Granderson added a two-run blast of his own in the third for his 24th of the season to give New York a 4-2 edge. LA moved within one-run of the Bombers in the fourth when Bobby Wilson grounded out to score Howard Kendrick, but Cano extended the lead to two with an RBI single in the sixth as the Yankees major league-lead 138 home runs proved to be the difference with a 5-3 win over the Halos.
