Angels have been iffy with pitching so far this spring. While the mainline starters have been fine, the more fringe pitchers have not had good luck thus far. Today was a good step in fixing that issue as the Angels shutout the Guardians.
The starter today was Griffin Canning, someone who has not pitched in a game since 2021. As the 6th man in the rotation isn’t clear, he will be fighting for his chance to be that guy. So how would he and the rest of the pitchers look?
Griffin Canning was healthy and that is what mattered. That and that he went 2 scoreless innings in his start today.
Not Mike Trout Hunter Renfroe rewarded that good outing with a solo shot to start the bottom of the 2nd.
More were scored in the 5th, as the Angels got to Curry a ton, scoring 4.
Back to back triples in the 7th got another run across to make it 6-0 Angels.
It was all that was needed for an easy shutout victory.
The Angels are now 6-4 on the Spring and play again tomorrow. Same noonish time same Bally channel.
