NINTH INNING: Angels 7, Yankees 6. FINAL SCORE

Top: You just knew this inning was going to get interesting, regardless. Even after Brian Fuentes retired the first two Yankees in order, you just knew something would happen.

Alex Rodriguez was intentionally walked, Hideki Matsui walked and Robinson Cano was hit by a pitch. Then it came down to Nick Swisher vs. Brian Fuentes.

Swisher popped it up.

Angels win.

To Game 6 in the Bronx, we go.

Scott called Damon out, which Damon clearly was not happy with. He restrained from arguing, choosing only to express a few words on his way back to the dugout. Then manager Joe Girardi came out for a chat with Scott.
