John Lackey, looking like he did in 2005 when he went 14-5 got his eighth victory of the year as the LA Angels defeated the New York Yankees on Sunday by a 4-3 margin. The win gave the Angels a sweep of the three game series giving them a four and a half game lead in the American League West.
The loss was the Yankees seventh in the last ten games, sending them to six games under .500 and last place in the American League East. They now trail the Boston Red Sox by 12.5 games. Scott Proctor who gave up too many walks in his relief stint of starter Mike Mussina took the loss. Francisco Rodriguez got save number 17.
