Anaheim Angels Team Report - April 24

(Sports Network) - The Anaheim Angels home woes continued on Wednesday as they fell 9-2 to the red hot New York Yankees at Edison Field.

Mickey Callaway (1-2) got the loss after giving up six runs -- four earned -- in 4 2/3 innings. He also walked four Yankee batters and gave up three home runs.

Adam Kennedy went 3-for-4 with a run scored for the Angels, who have lost seven of their last nine game overall, including three straight at home.

Anaheim was without the services of reliever Francisco Rodriguez last night, who left the team to attend his grandmother's funeral in Venezuela. The Angels brought up 40-year-old reliever Rich Rodriguez from Triple-A Salt Lake. Rodriguez pitched in the game and gave up one run in 1 1/3 innings.

Tim Salmon extended his hitting streak to 12-games in the loss, going 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored.

Garrett Anderson went 1-for-4 in the game and is now batting an impressive .388 on the season. While Anderson remained red hot, table setter David Eckstein continued his struggles at the dish, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

The Angels will send Ramon Ortiz to the mound for the rubber tilt of this three-game set from Anaheim. He is making his fifth start of the season and will try to rebound from his second loss of the year. The Angels righthander allowed six earned runs on six hits in his most recent outing, while also recording three walks and a wild pitch.

Ortiz (2-2) has posted a record of 1-1 and an ERA of 5.66 in his career appearances against the Yankees. In those outings, he has walked 17 batters and struckout 27 of them in 35 innings of action.
