Live Game Updates: Angels at Yankees - 6/7

7:14 p.m., Mid 1st: A quick, clean top of the first for Michael Pineda. He retires the Angels in order on just eight pitches, striking out two. Considering his struggles in the opening frame this season, that is a really good sign for the Yankees.

7:27 p.m., End 1st: Good start for the Yankees against David Huff. They score three in the first on five hits, led by a two-run shot to left by Carlos Beltran and an RBI single by Austin Romine. 

7:45 p.m., End 2nd: Yankees add another on a Rob Refsnyder sac fly. They're up 4-0 after two innings of play.

7:54 p.m., Mid 3rd: Pineda works around a one-out double in a scoreless top of the third. He's allowed just one hit so far.

8:00 p.m., End 3rd: A Yankee Stadium home run off the right-field foul pole by Starlin Castro extends the Yankees' already-big lead. They're now up 5-0.

8:26 p.m., End 4th: Yankees leave a couple on in the fourth, but more importantly, Huff's night is done after 3 2/3 innings. Already down 5-0, the Angels will have to get at least 13 outs from their bullpen just to make this one official.

8:38 p.m., Mid 5th: Pineda finally caves in the fifth. The Angels rally for three runs as the Yankees' dream of giving their bullpen a day off begins to fade.

8:51 p.m., Mid 6th: Pineda bounces back nicely for a 1-2-3 sixth. He's only at 81 pitches, so with Aroldis Chapman unavailable tonight, I'd imagine he'll back out for the seventh.

9:06 p.m., Mid 7th: Pineda again retires the Angels in order in the seventh. With his night probably over, here's his final line: 7 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 K. Not bad.

9:22 p.m., End 7th: Yankees get a run back in the seventh on a two-out RBI single by A-Rod. Now it's up to Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller to record the last six outs.

9:31 p.m., Mid 8th: Betances strikes out two in a 1-2-3 eighth inning. His streak of allowing at least one earned run in four straight appearances is finally snapped.

9:46 p.m., Mid 9th: That's your ballgame. Miller puts up a zero in the ninth and the Yankees beat the Angels, 6-3, for their third win in in four games.
