--The Angels went 3-for-15 with runners in scoring position in the Game 2 loss, stranding 16 baserunners, including 11 from the seventh inning on. "We did a lot of good things out there on that ballfield tonight," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Unfortunately, one of them wasn't hitting with runners in scoring position, and that's eventually what hurt us."
--The two teams combined to use an ALCS record 38 players in Game 2. The Yankees set an individual team record by using 21 players (including eight pitchers). The Angels used 17 players, five pitchers.
--The 13-inning game was the longest in the Angels' postseason history. They went 12 innings before winning Game 3 of the 2008 ALDS in Boston.
BY THE NUMBERS
9-3, 2.90 ERA -- Game 3 starter Jered Weaver's statistics at home this season.
