THE BRONX - The road to the ALCS title is getting a little longer for the New York Yankees following Thursday night's loss to the Los Angeles Angels.

Game 5 had the Yanks trailing 4-0 from the first inning but they scored 6 runs in the seventh with Robinson Cano's triple giving the Yanks a 6-4 lead.

But the home team struck back when Kendry Morales singled and the Angels held on to win 7-6.

The Yanks are back in the Bronx Saturday night for Game 6, turning to veteran pitcher Pettitte to push them into the World Series.
