Welcome to the March 6, 2021 Postgame article. Jose Quintana started for the Angels. Dereck Rodriguez started for the Rockies. At Designated Hitter we had Taylor Ward versus C.J. Cron. Jo Adell was back out in Right Field. Oh Yeah, Anthony Rendon was in the lineup. How did it go? Rendon didn’t do much. The final score was 8-2 Colorado.
Jose Quintana pitched a scoreless two innings with 4 strikeouts. Raisel Iglesias pitched the third inning. Three up, three down. Jo Adell reached three times, once on a homer, once on a walk, and once on an error. He made no defensive miscues that I can remember today. Davis Daniel pitched for the Angels in his professional debut and the inning was three up, three down. Not bad Kid! Jon Jay hit a stand up triple. Jake Faria pitched the fifth and retired all three batters he faced on strikeouts.
Ben Rowen came in to replace Mike Mayers in the fourth and gave up a double, a single, a walk, and a sacrifice fly for three more runs, one of which was charged to Mayers. Luis Rengifo was 0 for 3 with 2 strikeouts. Franklin Barreto went 0 for 2. Gosselin was 0 for 2 with a strikeout. Denny Brady came in to pitch the top of the seventh and promptly gave up a homer to Connor Joe making it 8-2 Colorado.
Mike Mayers gave up four runs in the top of the fourth inning without recording a single out. In his defense he was hit by a sharp liner off the bat of C. J. Cron. He had already given up a homer to Chris Owings on his very first pitch, though. Oops! He also issued a four pitch walk right after the home run, and then a two run double by Fuentes after C.J. Cron hit him.
