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.
