NEW YORK (AP) Mark Teixeira hit a tying homer and Jacoby Ellsbury scored the go-ahead run thanks to a passed ball and wild pitch in the eighth inning, sending the New York Yankees to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday night.

Masahiro Tanaka struck out a season-high 11, including Mike Trout twice, and overcame an early bout of wildness in a tight pitchers' duel with Angels right-hander Garrett Richards. Neither starter received a decision, leaving both undefeated this year.

Adam Warren (1-1) struck out two in 1 2-3 scoreless innings. David Robertson worked the ninth for his fourth save and second in two days.

The Yankees took two of three in the series and have won 10 of 14 overall.

David Freese homered for the Angels, who went 4-5 on a tough road trip to Detroit, Washington and New York.
