Yanks' rallies turned aside
Angels 7, Yankees 6
Luis Vizcaino couldn't hold a one-run lead in the seventh inning. (Mark Avery/AP)
 Posada's game-tying homer
 A-Rod's two-run homer
Alex Rodriguez's 40th homer gave the Yanks a lead, and Jorge Posada tied it in the eighth with a two-run shot, but subpar outings from Luis Vizcaino and Sean Henn proved costly as the Angels walked off as winners in the 10th inning. Phil Hughes was charged with five runs in 6 1/3 innings.
