Nathan Eovaldi pitched scoreless, five-hit ball into the sixth inning, Garrett Jones homered and the New York Yankees snapped their three-game skid with a 3-1 victory over the Angels on Wednesday night.
Mike Trout homered for the Angels, whose four-game winning streak ended while their front office was in upheaval.
The Angels announced general manager Jerry Dipoto's resignation during the game, replacing him with former GM Bill Stoneman.
Matt Shoemaker (4-7) dropped to 0-6 at Angel Stadium this season, yielding seven hits and two runs while pitching into the sixth inning.
Chase Headley and Didi Gregorius had run-scoring singles for the Yankees, who had lost seven of 10 before salvaging the finale of their seven-game trip.
Eovaldi (8-1) had little trouble with the Angels' punchless lineup, allowing just two runners to reach third base in his third straight win — and his second victory over Los Angeles in less than a month.
Reliever Mike Morin was activated after missing more than a month with a strained oblique muscle.
The son of a co-creator of the "Barney and Friends" TV show has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for shooting his Malibu neighbor.
City News Service says 29-year-old Patrick Leach was sentenced Wednesday for the 2013 attack.
Prosecutors say he wounded his neighbor in the chest during an argument after accusing the man of trespassing.
Leach's mother is Sheryl Leach, co-creator of the PBS show featuring Barney the purple dinosaur.
Leach had pleaded no contest in May to assault with a semiautomatic firearm and shooting from a motor vehicle, causing great bodily injury.
About a third of the world's polar bears could be in imminent danger from greenhouse gas emissions in as soon as a decade, a U. S. government report shows.
Greenhouse gases are blamed for the climate warming that's reducing the polar bear's summer sea ice habitat.
The scientific models attempted to predict the effects on polar bear populations under two scenarios: one in which greenhouse gas emissions stabilized, and the other in which they continued unabated.
Under either scenario, the bears in the Alaska, Russia and Norway group — with an estimated population of about 8,500 — would start to be affected in either 2025 or 2030, said lead author Todd Atwood, an Alaska-based USGS research wildlife biologist.
There are other steps we can take to slow the decline of polar bears, but in the long run, the only way to save polar bears in the Arctic is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

A lawyer who wants to make homosexual activity a capital offense in California says the state's top law enforcement officer has for the second time thwarted his effort to put a law before voters that advocates killing anyone who engages in gay sex.
A judge relieved Harris last week of the duty to process McLaughlin's original initiative, which would have amended the California penal code to make sex with a person of the same gender a capital offense.
 issuing any title and summary of the proposal would be inconsistent with the court's judgment.
