OC Register: Andrew Heaney, Mike Trout set career highs in Angels victory

Recommended Posts

ARLINGTON, Texas — Under the sweltering Texas sun and with a taxed bullpen behind him, Andrew Heaney delivered for the Angels.

Heaney struck out a career-high 14 and became the first Angels pitcher this season to work eight innings, leading the way to a 5-1 victory over the Texas Rangers in the first game of a doubleheader on Tuesday.

Mike Trout gave Heaney all the run support he needed with a first-inning two-run homer, his career-high 42nd of the season.

Heaney and Trout led the Angels to a victory on a grueling afternoon sandwiched between two night games. The teams played 11 innings on Monday night, with the second game of the split-admission doubleheader scheduled for Tuesday night.

The first pitch temperature was 97 degrees, with a heat index over 100 degrees. The game, which was the make-up of the postponement following Tyler Skaggs’ death on July 1, was played before an announced crowd of 17,249, although in the actual attendance was much lower.

They saw Trout hit is 10th homer of the season against the Rangers, extending his own franchise record for homers in a single season against one team. Trout came up about a foot short of his 43rd homer in the ninth inning, settling for a triple off the top of the fence.

After Trout’s homer got the Angels a lead, Heaney took over. He gave up a pair of singles in the first, but then he retired 16 in a row before allowing a Willie Calhoun homer in the sixth.

Heaney needed 108 pitches to get through eight innings. He’s the first Angels pitcher this season to pitch at least seven innings in back-to-back games.

Since returning from the injured list, Heaney has allowed five runs in 18-1/3 innings, with 24 strikeouts and one walk.
