ANAHEIM -- Wednesday wasn’t CC Sabathia’s night, but the Yankees salvaged something out of it. The veteran lefty made his third start of the season looking for just six strikeouts to reach the lofty milestone of 3,000 as he winds down his long career. Instead, Sabathia gave up three home runs, two to Andrelton Simmons, and left after the fifth inning three strikeouts shy.

The Yankees, however, were just getting going at that point. The Bombers rallied for six runs in the final three innings to snag a 6-5 come-from-behind win over the Angels at Angel Stadium.

The Yankees (14-10) won their sixth straight and clinched their third straight series win. They’ll look for the four-game sweep over the Angels (9-16) Thursday night.

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 and drove in three runs, including the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth. He scored Tyler Wade, who had a two-out single and a stolen base to get in scoring position.

That offensive comeback led by LeMahieu and three scoreless innings from Jonathan Loaisiga out of the bullpen salvaged what started out to be a very disappointing night. With much of his family having flown in from New Jersey and Northern California, Sabathia struggled early. He was chased after five innings with the Yankees trailing 5-0.
