OC Register: Jose Quintana continues strong spring in Angels’ victory

Recommended Posts

THE GAME: The Angels beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 4-3, in an eight-inning Cactus League game on Friday at Tempe Diablo Stadium. The Angels improved 7-4-1.

PITCHING REPORT: Left-hander José Quintana worked three-plus innings and did not allow a run. He issued a walk but retired nine of 10 hitters he faced in the first three innings. He returned to the mound for the fourth, most likely just to face one more hitter, and he issued a walk. Quintana has not allowed a run in six innings so far this spring. “I feel my confidence getting up every time I go to the mound,” Quintana said. “It’s a good time to see how all my stuff has been doing. Today it feels really good.” Manager Joe Maddon said Quintana has been better because he’s using more of his offspeed pitches. “He’s looked great,” Maddon said. “He’s strike-throwing. He’s in control. It’s a better mix of his pitches.”… Right-handere Junior Guerra entered after Quintana and allowed the Diamondbacks to load the bases with no outs. He escaped with a pop-up and two strikeouts. … An inning later, Guerra left a two-on, no-out situation for Jaime Barria, and he also escaped with a strikeout, a groundout and a flyout. Barria was charged with three runs in 2-2/3 innings. He struck out five. … Left-hander Jose Suarez pitched 1-1/3 scoreless innings.

HITTING REPORT: Anthony Rendon lined a single into right-center. … Justin Upton pounded a ground ball into the hole on the left side and beat it out for an infield hit. … Albert Pujols hit a pop-up along the first base line. He wasn’t running, and when the ball dropped in fair territory, he was still retired easily at first. … David Fletcher doubled into right field, driving in two runs. … Scott Schebler followed with a two-run homer, his second of the spring. Schebler, Jose Rojas and Justin Upton (three) are the only Angels players with multiple homers this spring.

DEFENSE REPORT: Max Stassi played his first game behind the plate of this spring, catching four innings. He had been slowed at the start of camp because of rehab from hip surgery. … Third baseman Luis Rengifo made a low throw to first for an error.

UP NEXT: Angels at Chicago White Sox, Saturday, noon PT, Camelback Ranch, Fox Sports West, 830 AM
