Andrew Heaney is the second best pitcher on the Angels. Today he gave a quality start. 3 runs and 8 hits in 7 innings of work and 7 strikeouts. Matt Andriese pitched the 8th and the 9th and did a good job. No runs from the bullpen.
For offense, things were slow to start. The first run was given to them on a walks and a wild pitch. As a team their first hit was with 2 outs in the 5th. But in the 7th a second run was scored. And in the 8th inning, after over a month, Albert Pujols hit a home run, number 660.
The Angels are now 20-28 and have an off day tomorrow. Barring a miracle, they will not leave the state of California this year. Homestead vs Texas and Arizona, and a trip to San Diego and Los Angeles. 12 games left in the season.
