Yankees, Angels Just Keep Piling Up Wins

Jonathan Grant | April 30th, 2022

Baseball is a game of streaks, and right now the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels are riding very positive ones. The Yankees are the hottest team in the game at the moment having picked up a seventh consecutive win on Friday by bouncing the Royals 12-2 in Kansas City. Rain-shortened the game to eight innings, but there was no doubt as to the best team on the night as the Bronx Bombers launched four home runs to outslug their AL Central opponents.

Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Anthony Rizzo, and Gleyber Torres all went yard, and that means the pinstripes have won nine of their last ten. The Angels also kept on rolling on Friday night as well as they landed a sixth straight ‘W’ by taking down the White Sox 5-1 in Chicago. Taylor Ward and Shohei Ohtani both hit first-inning homers and Angel’s pitching staff produced a combined three-hitter to keep their strong start to the season going. There is a long, long way to go, sure, but the fact that the Angels have started so well is a major plus for them as they seek a return to the postseason after years of missing out.
