Fresh off getting swept by the Marlins, The Angels took to the road to face off against the Chicago White Sox and starting pitcher Michael Kopech. Unlike the previous series, however, the Angels racked up early runs and did not relinquish their lead. All four of those eary runs came via two back-to-back long balls from Brandon Drury and Matt Thaiss.
The offense proceeded to mostly fizzle out sans a couple nice bloops that led to two key insurance runs in the 8th, but Griffin Canning put together 6 solid innings of 3-run ball before the bullpen came in and Neto potentially saved the game with an outstanding dive play.
Speaking of the bullpen, Ben Joyce debuted and repeatedly pumped 102+ into the zone to overwhelm the Chicago hitters, racking up two strikeouts to get his career kicked off.
The Halos will face off against Lucas Giolito tomorrow with Tyler Anderson on the mound, looking to take the series.
