Mussina sets dark tone
Angels 18, Yankees 9
Mike Mussina allowed seven hits, including five doubles. (Chris Carlson/AP)
 A-Rod's 41st homer
 A-Rod's 42nd homer
Coming off his worst start of the season, Mike Mussina stooped even lower, lasting just 1 2/3 innings to match his shortest start since 1995. The Yankees pulled to within two runs in the third, but the bullpen couldn't hold the Angels as the Yanks lost ground in the Wild Card race. Alex Rodriguez homered twice.
