Thames followed Posada's fourth homer with a double, advanced on a sacrifice by Curtis Granderson and scored as Derek Jeter beat the relay to first base on a potential inning-ending double-play grounder to third.
Cano led off the sixth with his fifth homer, trimming the Angels' lead to 5-4. It was his seventh hit in 31 at-bats against Kazmir.
NOTES: Yankees reserve OF Randy Winn, who has played in more games than any active major leaguer who has never been to the postseason (1,611), will respectfully skip the team's visit to the White House on Monday. "It's for the guys who won the World Series," said the 13-year veteran, who signed with them as a free agent in February after four-plus seasons with the Giants. "You play for a chance to go to the playoffs and get to the World Series. But nothing's guaranteed. I mean, I was up eight games at the All-Star break with Seattle in 2003 and didn't make it." ... The Yankees don't play at Anaheim the rest of the regular season, but they will be at Dodger Stadium for a three-game set beginning June 25. ... Nine-time Gold Glove CF Torii Hunter robbed Alex Rodriguez of extra bases in the eighth with a diving catch in left-center.
