After a 14-inning loss Monday night will the Los Angeles Angels have enough zip to rally against the New York Yankees tonight (Tuesday) in Anaheim?

Chris Stratton (0-1) will make the start for the Halos, who fell to 9-14 with the 4-3 defeat. The Angels lead 2-1 in the second on Jonathan Lucroy’s two-run home run and tied it up at 3-3 in the bottom of the 12th when Brian Goodwin drove in Peter Bourjos.

The decisive 14th inning was a bit wild, largely due to Angel mishaps. Glyber Torres struck out swinging but reached first safely on a throwing error by catcher Lucroy. Clint Frazier struck out swinging, but Torres advanced to second on a wild pitch by Luke Bard. After Mike Tauchman struck out, Bard intentionally walked Mike Ford. Torres then stole third and came home on a single by Gio Urshela.

The Halos went down meekly in the bottom of the inning with Kole Calhoun getting an intentional walk and the side getting retired on a grounder and two strikeouts.
