Yunel Escobar went 2-for-4 with a two-run single and two strikeouts in Monday's win over the Dodgers.

Escobar notched a two-run single against Rich Hill in the third inning. He had missed the last two games due to a strained left thumb, but had no issues in his return to the lineup on Monday. The veteran third baseman is 10-for-26 (.385) over his last six games and is slashing a fine-if-unspectacular .283/.333/.417 with five homers and 23 RBI in 59 games played this season.

Martin Maldonado went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Dodgers.

Maldonado uncoiled for a solo home run off Sergio Romo with one out in the ninth inning to give the Angels a 4-0 lead and offer a little bit of insurance against a Dodgers lineup that had been swinging molten hot bats entering action on Monday. The home run was Maldonado's eighth of the season and bumped his RBI total to 24. He is hitting .261/.328/.431 in 211 at-bats.

Cody Bellinger went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in Monday's loss to the Angels.

Apparently it is possible to keep the hot-swinging rookie down from time-to-time. To put a number on it, Bellinger has fanned at least three times in 10 of 58 games this season, but had not done so since June 6 prior to tripping up on Monday. The budding star is working to a .271/.340/.670 triple-slash with 24 homers and 55 RBI this season.

Chase Utley went 1-for-4 with a double and a strikeout in Monday's loss to the Angels.

The Angels cooled off the Dodgers in this one, with the boys from Los Angeles finishing with just five hits in the shutout loss. Utley's double was his ninth of the season. The elder second baseman has picked up two-baggers in two of his last three games, but is hitting just .229/.330/.388 with four homers and 20 RBI in 170 at-bats for the season as a whole.

Cam Bedrosian struck out both batters he faced in Monday's win over the Dodgers.

Bedrosian entered with two on and one out in the seventh inning after Ricky Nolasco was forced out of action due to a potential injury. No worries for the Angels, though, as Bedrosian proceeded to strike out Mike Freeman and Chase Utley to end that threat and preserve the 3-0 advantage. In five appearances since being reinstated from the disabled list earlier this month, the reliever has surrendered two runs on two hits in 4 1/3 innings while posting an 8/2 K/BB ratio.

Rich Hill allowed three runs on four hits over seven innings in Monday's loss to the Angels.

Hill took the loss in this one, but he pitched well enough for a win. The veteran southpaw struck out seven and walked two on the evening, with only a two-run single by Yunel Escobar in the third inning and a sacrifice fly by Danny Espinosa in the fourth dinging the scoreboard on his watch. He will bring a 4.60 ERA and 1.45 WHIP into a road start against the Padres.

Ricky Nolasco exited Monday's game against the Dodgers after taking a comebacker off his leg in the seventh inning.

Nolasco had held the Dodgers off the scoreboard through the first six innings, but was hit by a pair of comebackers in the seventh. After a meeting on the mound with the trainer and manager Mike Scioscia, he then left the game. He remained in the dugout after exiting and was spotted pacing around, so this may just have been a precautionary lifting by Scioscia and company. Consider Nolasco day-to-day unless the Angels offer information to the contrary. He will be reevaluated on Tuesday.

Tyler Austin went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two total RBI in Monday's win over the White Sox.

Austin lofted a sacrifice fly as part of a three-run fourth by the Yankees. In his next at-bat, he smashed a screaming liner into the left field bullpen for a solo dinger off David Holmberg with one out in the sixth inning. That was his first homer since being called up on June 24. He had gone 1-for-7 with three strikeouts in the two games prior to Monday's sturdy showing. Thanks to Greg Bird's seemingly endless stay on the disabled list with an ankle injury and Chris Carter's struggles prior to being designated for assignment over the weekend, the Yankees have fielded one of the worst offensive first base collectives in the bigs. If Austin can give them anything resembling a boost at the position, they will most definitely take it.
