Xavier Nady rallies Yankees past Angels

Xavier Nady homered and had a career-high six RBIs, rallying the New York Yankees past the sloppy Los Angeles Angels 14-9 in a wild, back-and-forth game Sunday. Mark Teixeira hit a go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning for his first home run with Los Angeles, but New York took advantage of uncharacteristically poor defense by the Angels to score six times in the bottom half and complete its largest comeback of the season.

Ivan Rodriguez hit his first homer for the Yankees, starting their improbable rally from a five-run deficit against ace John Lackey. New York scored 10 unearned runs in its final two at-bats as the Angels matched a season high with four errors.
