Aug. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Alfonso Soriano hit two home runs and drove in a career-best six runs as the New York Yankees defeated the Los Angeles Angels 14-7 in a Major League Baseball game delayed 26 minutes by rain in the eighth inning.

Soriano hit a two-run homer in the fifth to give the Yankees a 4-3 lead and followed with a three-run homer in the seventh last night at Yankee Stadium. Soriano also had a run-scoring single and then scored on a two-run double by Alex Rodriguez.

Yankees starter CC Sabathia (10-10) allowed three runs on three hits in six innings while striking out seven and walking six. The Angels’ Jason Vargas (6-5) gave up four runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.

The Yankees improved to 61-57 with their third straight win and are in fourth place in the American League East, 9 1/2 games behind the Boston Red Sox (72-49), who beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 in 11 innings last night.
