Power and Control Propels Win #2

New York Yankees 10
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1
Win: Mike Mussina (1-0, 2.77)
Loss: Bartolo Colon (0-1, 12.86)
Mike Mussina helped snap the Yankees' four-game losing streak with a dominant performance, outpitching the reigning AL CY Young Award Winner, Bartolo Colon. Mussina went 6 innings, allowing only one earned run and striking out 5 for the 225th victory of his career.
Jorge Posada broke out of his early season slump with a 3-4 afternoon, blasting 2 homeruns and driving in 5 runs. Robinson Cano had a nice day as well, going 3-5, while Alex Rodriguez continued his incredible dominance over Colon, smacking his 5th homerun in just 8 at-bats versus the Angels' ace.
The Yankees end the road trip 2-4, and return home to the Bronx on Tuesday afternoon for their home opener.
