OC Register: Justin Bour belts team-leading third homer in Angels’ tie

Recommended Posts

THE GAME: The Angels gave up two runs in the ninth to end up with a 7-7 tie against the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday afternoon in Maryvale, Ariz. The Angels have tied three games this spring.

PITCHING REPORT: Right-hander Jaime Barría tossed 4-2/3 innings, the longest outing by an Angels starter this spring. He gave up four runs, including homers by Christian Yelich and Jesus Aguilar. … Right-hander Luke Bard pitched another scoreless inning. He gave up a hit, which was the only baserunner he’s allowed in 4-2/3 innings this spring. “This was his roughest outing and it was still pretty good,” Manager Brad Ausmus said. “He looked really good.” The Angels had Bard as a Rule 5 pick at the beginning of last season, but they sent him back to the Minnesota Twins. The Angels re-signed him to a minor league deal at the start of spring training this year. … Left-hander Williams Jerez pitched a scoreless inning. He has allowed two runs in 6-2/3 innings. … Right-hander Matt Ramsey started the ninth with a two-run lead and gave up two runs.

HITTING REPORT: Justin Bour hit a three-run homer in the third inning. It was Bour’s third homer of the spring, which leads the team. … David Fletcher doubled home two runs in the fourth inning. Fletcher also got a single when his fly ball was lost in the sun. … José Rojas had another double. The Southern California product is 11 for 25 (.440) in big league exhibitions this spring, even though he’s not in big league camp. “He’s been tearing the cover off the ball,” Ausmus said before the game. “He’s made an impression. He’s opened some eyes. He’s a name that we know, and a name I knew from last year. I had seen him play, but I had not seen him do this. At the very least he’s brought some attention to himself.” … Kevin Maitan singled to center field, driving in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning. It was Maitan’s first at-bat in a big league spring training game. Livan Soto hit a flyout in his first at-bat. Maitan, 19, and Soto, 18, were the two players the Angels signed after MLB released them from their deals with the Atlanta Braves as a penalty for the Braves violating MLB international signing rules in December 2017.

DEFENSE REPORT: Shortstop Roberto Baldoquin made a nice play over the middle on a bouncer. … Maitan couldn’t handle a grounder to his left. It was ruled a hit.

UP NEXT: Angels (RHP Cody Allen) vs. Diamondbacks (RHP Merrill Kelly), Friday, 1 p.m., Tempe Diablo Stadium; Angels (LHP Dillon Peters) vs. Giants (RHP Jeff Samardzija), Friday, 1 p.m., Scottsdale Stadium

Pujols looking like he’s in better shape than Bour.

He may be ("best shape of my life").....but it's not a question of if Pujols breaks down but when....and when he does, Bour can pop a couple of Budweisers and handle 1b.....?
