Recap: LA Angels vs. NY Yankees

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Derek Jeter hit his first homer of the season, Vidal Nuno tossed 6 1/3 solid innings and the New York Yankees beat the Angels, 9-2, in the rubber match of a three-game series.

John Ryan Murphy and Mark Teixeira each knocked in two runs for the Yankees, who went 7-for-14 with runners in scoring position. Nuno (1-0) allowed one run on four hits while striking out three.

C.J. Cron went 3-for-4 with an RBI for the Angels, who saw starter Hector Santiago (0-6) give up six runs -- two earned -- on five hits with three walks over 2 1/3 innings.

"Hector wasn't able to minimize damage tonight," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "He's an emotional guy and he needs to get his confidence back."

The Yankees gave Nuno some early run support with a five-run first inning. Jacoby Ellsbury walked, Jeter reached first on right fielder Collin Cowgill's fielding error and Carlos Beltran walked to load the bases with no outs. Teixeira followed with a two-run double down the left-field line. After Alfonso Soriano struck out swinging, Yangervis Solarte hit a sacrifice fly.

Brett Gardner reached base on an infield single back to the pitcher. Santiago's throwing error allowed a run to score on the play. Brian Roberts then hit an RBI single to right.

"It was important for us to go out in front early," Teixeira said.

Jeter's solo homer to left-center field in the second made it 6-0.

"The fans have been awesome here from the first game," said Jeter, who played his final game in Anaheim. "It's something that you'll remember and I appreciate it. I've played a lot of great games here, competed in regular season and postseason. I have fond memories of playing here in Anaheim."

The Angels got on the board in the bottom of the second. Howie Kendrick and Cron singled to put men on the corners. Kendrick scored when Erick Aybar reached base on a fielder's choice. Los Angeles left the bases loaded later in the frame.

Nuno retired 13 straight batters before giving up a leadoff double to Corn in the seventh. Aybar flied out before Dellin Betances replaced Nuno. Betances loaded the bases with two outs but got Cowgill to line out.

New York tacked on three more runs in the eighth. Nick Maronde loaded the bases without recording an out. Cory Rasmus gave up a two-run single to Murphy. Beltran added a sacrifice fly later in the inning, making it 9-1.

Corn's RBI double in the bottom of the eighth made it a seven-run game.
