Anaheim Angels Team Report - April 23

(Sports Network) - The defending World Champion Anaheim Angels attempt to beat Roger Clemens and snap the Yankees' six-game winning streak tonight at Edison Field.

Despite out-hitting New York 10-9 yesterday, Anaheim suffered an 8-3 loss.

David Eckstein went 2-for-5 with two RBI for the Angels, who have lost four of five. Brad Fullmer also had two hits and scored twice in the losing effort.

John Lackey (1-2) got roughed up in his three-plus innings of work to absorb the loss. He gave up seven runs -- six earned -- on just five hits. He also walked four and surrendered a home run.

The Angels will send 27-year-old righty Mickey Callaway to the mound this evening to oppose Clemens. Callaway had his worst outing of the year last week against Texas, giving up seven hits and six runs over 4 1/3 frames of action. The hurler struck out five and walked two in the losing effort.

Callaway will be facing the Yankees for the first time in his career.

Anaheim, which has lost six of its last eight games, may have to do without the services of centerfielder Darin Erstad tonight. Erstad missed his second straight game on Tuesday with a hamstring injury.

Garret Anderson continues to shine for the Angels, as he is hitting .395 thus far with a team-high 17 RBI.
