The Associated Press reports that C.J. Wilson beat the Yankees for the first time in his career, while “Albert Pujols and his teammates teed off and the [Los Angeles] Angels romped past New York [Yankees] 7-1 Saturday. Howie Kendrick, Chris Iannetta and Vernon Wells homered as the Angels ended their three-game skid and stopped New York’s winning streak at four.”
Dominican slugger Pujols “got into the swing, too, after a quiet start with his new club. He singled sharply his first time up, then hit an RBI double that one-hopped the center-field wall. He later lined out twice and flied out to the fence in left. The three-time NL [Most Valuable Player] is still looking for his first home run of the year. He hasn’t connected in eight games—that matches his longest homer drought at the start of a season, also done in 2008 with [the] St. Louis [Cardinals].”
Meanwhile, Diario Libre emphasizes the performances of Pujols and other Caribbean players on both teams. Dominican player Robinson Canó had a single and scored a run for the Yankees in the fifth inning. For the Angels, Dominicans Erick Aybar went 1-5 with a run scored, and Pujols 2-5 with one RBI; Cuban player Kendrys Morales went 0-5; and Venezuelan Alberto Callaspo went 0-3. For the Yankees, Dominicans Canó 1-4 with an RBI and Eduardo Núñez 1-3 with a run scored.
