The Yankees saw their six-game winning streak snapped Thursday night as they took an ugly 11-5 loss to the Angels. >> Box score

Six takeaways from Thursday's game...

1) Masahiro Tanaka cruised through four shutout innings before he imploded. He allowed a pair of two-run homers in the fifth as the Angels tied the game at 4-4. He then walked two batters in the sixth, at which point Aaron Boone yanked him for Jonathan Holder. Holder allowed both inherited runners to score via a two-run single by David Fletcher. Five of the six runs Tanaka allowed in 5.2 innings were earned. He allowed six hits and three walks while striking out two. Tanaka walked three batters for the third straight start and has 11 walks over his last four outings. According to ESPN's Coley Harvey, Tanaka induced just one swing-and-miss throughout his 89 pitches, the lowest total of his career; Thursday was his 143rd MLB appearance, including the postseason.

The Yankees look to sweep their four-game series at the Angels Thursday night at 9:07 p.m.

Yankees notes

The Yankees erased a five-run deficit Wednesday night to earn their sixth straight win, an impressive run considering the number of injuries they've been dealing with. That number grew Wednesday as Clint Frazier hurt his ankle and landed on the injured list. ... DJ LeMahieu had a badly needed big night at the plate, going 2-for-4 with three RBI, driving in the go-ahead run in the ninth with a single. LeMahieu was just 3-for-37 over his last nine appearances.

The Yankees were down from the start, but they battled their way back to a 6-5 win to beat the Angels and keep their win streak alive. >> Box score

Six takeaways from Wednesday's game...

1) DJ LeMahieu came into this game going 2-for-his-last-32 at the plate. Make that 2-for-33 after a strikeout in his first at-bat on the night. But that all went away when he put the Yanks on the board in the top of the sixth with an RBI double. The next inning, he hit a clutch sac fly to make it a one-run game. But his biggest hit came in the top of the ninth when he fought off a fastball to right field to score Tyler Wade to give the Yankees the lead and eventual win.

Whether he's with the Mets or a different team, one thing has been consistent with Matt Harvey: success against the Yankees.

The former Mets ace Harvey threw six innings of two-run ball in Monday's start, retiring the last seven batters he faced.

Harvey allowed a solo home run to Luke Voit in the first inning and another run to score on a Gleyber Torres foul out in the third, but allowed just three hits and two walks to lower his ERA to 8.03.

Former Mets pitcher Matt Harvey had a quality start in his Angels debut Friday night, giving up two runs in six innings against the Athletics while taking a no-decision. He allowed four hits and three walks but had just one strikeout.

After a leadoff walk, Harvey retired 12 consecutive batters. He began the fifth by giving up two walks and a single to load the bases with no outs, but his lone strikeout and a double play got him out of the jam unscathed. 

But he couldn't keep Oakland off the board in the sixth when he allowed a two-run homer to Khris Davis. He received no run support while he was in the game, but the Angels got him off the hook for the loss by scoring four runs in the eight.

The Matt Harvey era in New York ended last year when the Mets traded the former ace to the Reds, and the right-hander is now attempting to revive his once-promising career with the Angels.

But after all of the off-field issues, the surgery to fix his thoracic outlet syndrome and his inability to regain his All-Star form in Flushing leaves lingering regret within Harvey.

When the news broke on Tuesday that Matt Harvey is signing with the Angels, my first thought was, well, at least Anaheim is closer to Los Angeles than San Diego. 

It was only last April, remember, when Harvey, already relegated to Mickey Callaway's bullpen by then, had such a craving to party in LA that he hopped a ride from San Diego, where the Mets were playing a weekend series. 

To which Sandy Alderson essentially threw up his hands and said enough is enough.

While the Mets have showed interest in free-agent catchers Wilson Ramos and Yasmani Grandal, they appear to have competition in the Los Angeles Angels.

Ramos, with whom the Mets met earlier in the week, is the Angels' No. 1 catching target, according to Jerry Crasnick, while the Los Angeles Times' Maria Torres reports they are also pursuing Grandal.

Though Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen expressed his confidence in the catching tandem of Travis d'Arnaud and Kevin Plawecki, he has not shied away at upgrades at the position, including a potential trade for Marlins All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto.

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner extended his hitting streak to seven games by going 3-for-4 in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium.

Gardner was not a factor in the Yankees' three-run third inning -- the Yankees scored on Aaron Hicks' bases-loaded walk, Greg Bird's bases-loaded HBP and a Miguel Andujar fielder's choice -- but Gardner had three of New York's five hits.

"I feel good at the plate," Gardner told reporters after the game. "I'm seeing the ball well and just trying to put at-bats together to get on base for the guys behind me."

Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka struck out eight batters in six solid innings in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium.

Tanaka (6-2) won his second straight start and extended his unbeaten streak to seven games after giving up one run and three hits as the Yankees won the series against Los Angeles.

In his four previous outings in May, Tanaka had gone 1-0 with a 5.91 ERA, allowing 14 runs, 20 hits and six walks in 21 1/3 innings, giving up at least three runs in each. 

"We needed an outing like that from him,'' manager Aaron Boone said, according to the New York Post's Dan Martin.

Gary Sanchez hit a two-run home run while CC Sabathia threw seven strong innings as the Yankees won their ninth straight game and swept the Los Angeles Angels with a 2-1 win on Sunday at Angel Stadium. >> Box score


Sanchez's two-run home run off Tyler Skaggs in the fourth inning proved to be enough as Sabathia (2-0) and New York's bullpen held off the Angels in a three-game sweep.

After Giancarlo Stanton doubled with one out, Sanchez crushed an 0-1 fastball over the left-field fence for his seventh home run of the season and give the Yankees a 2-0 lead.

Sabathia gave up one run and five hits in seven solid innings, as he improved to 2-0 with a 0.52 ERA over his last three outings.

The Yankees continue to baffle their fans. One minute they look dead in the water, and the next they seem resuscitated. This happens in stretches of games and within games themselves. That is the problem with this Yankees club. There is no circumstance when it seems that the team is in complete control. Maybe that will change after tonight's come from behind win.
