Brian Roberts' first home run for the New York Yankees was a game-winner.

Roberts drove Ernesto Frieri's first-pitch fastball into the right-field seats with two outs in the ninth inning Tuesday night, lifting the Yankees to a 4-3 victory over the Angels.

The go-ahead blast came after the Angels tied the score with two outs in the eighth inning after Mike Trout tripled to chase Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda from the game and Albert Pujols followed with a single off Shawn Kelley (1-2).

The Angels won the opener of the three-game series 4-1 on Monday after scoring three runs in the eighth inning without a hit. Three Yankees relievers issued a combined six walks -- one intentional -- in the bullpen meltdown.
