Howie Kendrick went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer while Chris Iannetta added a two-run blast and Vernon Wells chipped in with a solo shot for the Angels, who evened their three-game set in New York.
Yankees starter Phil Hughes (0-2) was raked for six runs on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings.
Robinson Cano drove in New York's only run.
