History was not on the Angels' side in this postseason. In 2002 and '05, the Halos fell to the Yanks in a playoff opener and were able to come back to take the series. But that feat could not be achieved this time around, as Los Angeles' memorable season came to an end in Game 6 of the ALCS in New York.
